We weren’t able to give it much love in the paper this week, what with all the Best of Charleston stuff and all, but you really should check out the Receiver Time-Based Media Festival. It’s an awesome event if you’re into performance art, kinetic sculptures, video art, and more, and it’s completely free.

Take the kids to the Kids Fair. It’s got their name written all over it.

You’ll bloom at the Breath of Spring Flower Show at Cypress Gardens. It’s got a “Magic of the Movies” theme.

Break out that Love Bug and get in on the Charleston Road Rally.

Support local college artists at the Battle of the Brushes.

St. Patrick’s Day comes early at the St. Paddy’s Day Block Party and Parade in Park Circle and at the Folly Beach Pub Crawl. Technically you shouldn’t get pinched, but better wear green just to be safe.

And this month’s Seconds Sunday on King has got a green theme to it: There’s a Lucky Leprechaun Bar Crawl.

Safari Club International hosts their annual Dinner and Fundraiser. There’s also a Sea Island Habitat Fundraiser.

Oyster season won’t be around much longer. Gobble up some bivalves at the Keeper of the Wild Oyster Roast and the Oink ‘n’ Oyster Roast while you can.

The Carolina Challenge Cup finishes up at Blackbaud Stadium. There’s also the Palmetto Pump and USA Climbing Competition, the Spring into Bocce Beach Bocce Tournament, and the Killer 3 Mountain Bike Race.

The Charleston Firefighter Hockey Team will play the Boston Fire Department Hockey Team, while the Stingrays have a game against the Cincinnati Cyclones. Or maybe your puppy is an aspiring Kristi Yamaguchi? Check out Paws and Claws on Ice.

Autumn Tenyl has a trunk show at Spirit Moves. Apple Charter School hosts a garage sale (and an open house for prospective students). And there’s March’s Holy City Artist and Fleas.

There are a ton of theater offerings: Bash: Latterday Plays, Farragut North, Greater Tuna, Helium, Let the Good Times Roll, A Lie of the Mind, Out of Sterno, and Superior Donuts.

There’s Improv Smackdown!, Blast Off?, and Improv Riot.

The Sound of Charleston series continues, and the Berea College Concert Choir and Chamber Singers has a performance.

Murder By Death performs with Fake Problems, and Bubba Sparxxx will be at Thee Southern Belle.

If you’re looking to get outdoors this weekend, try the Kayak/Canoe Paddle or the Bulls Island Auto Tour.

Pushing the Elephant, about 2009 U.N. Humanitarian of the Year Rose Mapendo, will be screened by the Charleston Library Society.

And a women gets lost in translation (sorry, I still have Bill Murray references on the brain) in Fear and Trembling (Stupeur et Tremblements).
