    Tropic Weekender: Your insider guide to the best events this weekend

    We're in for possible thunderstorms and highs of 32C over the weekend. Thankfully there are plenty of indoor activities if you want to beat the steamy heat and potential storms. 

    You can hang out at the Cairns Regional Gallery and enjoy the work of acclaimed author and illustrator Shaun Tan or visit CoCA to check out their first artist in residence for 2017 Liesel Pink.

    Saturday is the big Chinese New Year Street Festival on Grafton St, and sports fans can check out a trial match between the Northern Pride and the Cowboys Under-20s steam at Innisfail or take a beginner's running class with the crew at Dynamic Running. 

    All that and more is in today's TropicWeekender guide. Have a great tropical weekend!
