See your favorite animals and bugs this weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University as the All Star Week celebration continues through Sunday. Each day features a different theme.

On Friday, Animal Day, naturalists will walk through the building showcasing birds, reptiles, and mammals, and visitors can pet some of them. At shows at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. guests can learn about the creatures. At a specimen table, the academy will bring out specimens from the collections for visitors to observe. Kids can listen to animal stories told by a storyteller throughout the day and make a craft.
 Saturday is Bug Day, when handlers will showcase specimens from the entomology collection. Learn about the life of bugs and make a craft. Sunday is Weird-Thing-in-a-Jar Day, when guests can see interesting animals or insect specimens such as bats, cane toads, amphiuma salamanders that resemble eels, and axolotl salamanders that are albinos with large heads and feathery gills. Participants can make their own weird thing to take home, and there will be storytelling on Saturday and Sunday.
"Cirque Éloize iD," 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday; 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the Merriam Theater, 250 S. Broad St. Admission: $25 to $75. Tickets can be purchased online, at the box office, or by phone at 215-893-1999. Information: 215-893-1999 or www.kimmelcenter.org.
