A pub crawl and an investigation into the paranormal combine for a fun night in Durham on Saturday. The Durham Pub Crawl and Haunted Adventure takes you to three bars and pubs in the area and in between you take a trip to four paranormal locations. It is a 2 ½ hour tour that covers about a mile. Tickets are $20 in advance.

A free family Kwanzaa celebration will be happening in Durham at the Holton Career and Resource Center from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. The family event is free and will include food, entertainment and activities for children. This was one of Go Ask Mom's weekend picks as well.
