Top things to do in Columbus for Jan. 10-12

As the temperatures dip, get a taste of warm-weather fun at this extravaganza of summertime recreation spread out over three of the largest buildings at the Ohio Expo Center. On hand will be 21 Central Ohio dealers and hundreds of campers and boats, as well as ATVs, golf carts and motorcycles and information about vacation rentals and campgrounds. Tickets are $14, with youths (6-13) $3 and children under 5 free.

 "Jersey Boys," Friday, Jan. 10-Saturday, Jan. 11

The 2006 winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, "Jersey Boys" chronicles the onstage triumphs and backstage traumas of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The touring production returns to the Oho Theatre for three performances that will have audiences singing, "Oh What a Night."

Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, Saturday, Jan 11-Sunday, 12

Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, written while the composer was taking a rest cure by Lake Geneva in the wake of a disastrous marriage, was not well-received at first—even by the violinist to whom it was dedicated, Leopold Auer. Auer came to regret spurning the work, however, and today it’s one of the most celebrated pieces in the violin repertoire. Esther Yoo will perform it in her debut appearance with ProMusica on Saturday at Worthington United Methodist Church and Sunday at the Southern Theatre in a program that also includes works by Haydn, Golijov and Wolfgang Danzmayr, father of the chamber orchestra’s music director.

The Columbus Weddings Show, Saturday, Jan. 11-Sunday, Jan. 12

The area's biggest wedding expo returns to the Ohio Expo Center's Kasich Hall, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Columbus Weddings Show presented by Worthington Jewelers will feature 125+ vendors covering every category of wedding planning, tons of giveaways and exclusive discounts, plus fashion shows and a presentation by Randy Fenoli of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress each day.
