CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - If you feel like you've just got to get out of the house, there's a lot going on in town this weekend.

The annual Martin Luther King Junior parade will start tomorrow morning at eleven on Tryon Street.

Tickets are still available for the musical Billy Elliott at Ovens Auditorium.  There are four shows this weekend, and all of them still have some seats for sale.  There's some swearing so you may not want to take small children.

If you're looking for something less high brow, Ring of Honor wrestling returns to the Metrolina Trade Expo in North Charlotte Saturday night.

On Saturday night The Bobcats take on the team that used to play here, the New Orleans Hornets.

Then on Sunday at 5pm the arena will turn from hardwood to ice as the Checkers host the Norfolk Admirals.

Also, if you're looking for something outside Charlotte, Stowe Botanical Garden in Gaston County has an orchid society show and sale Saturday from 9am - 5pm.
