The CW Renews 10 Shows, Including ‘Riverdale,’ ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash’ and More

It’s going to be Super all 2019 through 2020 on the CW network.
You can rest assured, all your favorite superhero shows will be returning for another season announced Thursday by Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW, at the Television Critics Association press tour. Superheros such as Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl will be returning for consecutive seasons.

According to ET News the entire crop of DC superhero shows, led by Arrow (season eight), as well as The Flash (season six), Supergirl (season five), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (season five) and Black Lightning (season three), will all return for new runs. This doesn’t come as a surprise, as next year’s annual DC crossover event was teased in December.

Charmed and Legacies will each return for sophomore seasons, while Riverdale will be back for its fourth season and Dynasty for its third run. Meanwhile, Supernatural — The CW’s longest-running show — will be back for its 15th season. It is unclear whether this will be its final season.

“This season, we expanded our primetime schedule to six nights with the addition of Sunday — which has been an unqualified success for the network, our affiliates and our advertisers. In addition to growing our schedule across the week, we also continue to add more year-round programming. The early renewal of these signature CW series gives us a head start on laying out the 2019-2020 season, and this is just the beginning,” Pedowitz said in a statement. “These shows provide a strong foundation for our multiplatform programming strategy, and we look forward to building on this with even more returning and new shows as we approach the May upfront.”

Kids Fly Free Travel Deal!

If you have kids and are planning a family trip, this deal is for you. A little-known airline dropped a new deal on Monday stating that they are now offering “Kids Fly Free” in addition to its already low prices.

“Flying Frontier makes it easy to get great travel deals for your family, and we’re making it even easier for your flock to fly by letting Kids Fly Free. FREE. And we aren’t just talking about the small-enough-to-sit-on-your-lap kids. We’re including the tall-enough-to-ride-the-big-rides kids, the mom-I’m-not-a-baby-anymore kids, or the oh-my-gosh-they’re-almost-driving kids.” stated in Frontiers’ Kids Fly Free Campaign.

Of course, there is fine print and I’m spilling the beans. You’re in luck if your child or children are younger than 14 years old, but here’s the catch one child fly free per adult fare and you must join Frontier’s “Discount Den” member fare club. Don’t be discouraged, when you do the math the membership fees work out to less than an average round trip ticket so It’s totally worth the $59.99 yearly membership fee.

In addition, check to make sure this deal applies to the dates you are planning to travel. More than likely you will be flying during the week because this offer is tailored to specific days that does not seem to include weekends. So, kudos to you if this deal applies to your lifestyle!

Book that flight and packs those backs because kids we are going on an adventure!

Seminole Museum Hosts 21st Annual American Indian Arts Celebration (AIAC) in Big Cypress November 2-3

The Seminole Tribe of Florida Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum is pleased to announce the highly anticipated annual American Indian Arts Celebration (AIAC) November 2 – 3, 2018.  Now in its 21st year, the AIAC is one of the top festivals in the Southeast.  Celebrate Native American Heritage Month in the heart of the Big Cypress Seminole Reservation!

The event will feature an exciting array of arts, crafts, food, hands-on activities, musical performances, dance demonstrations, and wildlife presentations. The Indian market, featuring 50 vendors, will showcase some of the finest native craftsmen, including prize-winning Seminole artisans. Daily performances will include an opening ceremony by Seminole Tribal elder Bobby Henry and his team of dancers; Nakotah LaRance— six-time world championship hoop dancer; and Native Pride Dancers from Minnesota—an internationally known high-energy show featuring an innovative blend of modern and traditional Native American dance styles.  Wildlife shows will be provided by Billie Swamp Safari and alligator wrestling by Billy Walker, who has been wrestling alligators since the 1980s.   Be sure to check out live demonstrations, including wood carving by Daniel Tommie, swamp cabbage cooking (with samples) by Billy Walker, Seminole food samples by Geraldine Osceola, and archery by Jake Osceola.

Modern Seminole musicians will light up the stage!  Friday’s musician RC North gives us a taste of alternative rock, and on Saturday hear the soulful tunes of Kowako Billie, followed later in the day by rappers Aye Five, featuring Carradine and DC.  Saturday’s line-up will additionally include a fashion show highlighting Seminole clothing throughout the years.

Our headliner for this year’s AIAC will be John and Kenn Little, members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, who will be presenting their documentary, More Than a Word at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.  The film traces how the word “r*dskin” evolved from being a term of racist derision and slander to being embraced as the name of one of the NFL’s most beloved franchises. It also draws on the voices of Native American activists and scholars to place this controversy within the wider context of Native American history and racial stereotyping, more generally.  A panel discussion with the directors will follow.

The event will take place outdoors at the festival grounds across from the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum on the Big Cypress Seminole Reservation.

Admission is $10 for adults; $7.50 for seniors and students (5-18 years, or with a college ID). Tribal members, children four years and under, and Museum members are free. Admission includes entrance to the event and the Museum. Parking is ample and free.
