Friday-Sunday. Snow will be flying in Breckenridge this weekend at the Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships. Now in its 20th year at Breck, the competition features 12 teams from around the world fashioning giant sculptures out of 20-ton blocks of snow. Judging starts at 10 a.m. Saturday, so the artists will be working furiously tonight to complete their pieces — visitors are welcome to stop by to watch them carving. A panel of artists and patrons select their top three choices, but through Saturday, anyone can cast a vote for the People’s Choice award. Kids can pick their favorites for a Kids’ Choice prize, too. The awards are presented at 3 p.m. Sunday, but the sculptures will stand through Feb. 7. Riverwalk Center, 150 W. Adams Ave., Breckenridge. Attendance is free. For more information, visit gobreck.com or call 970-453-3187, ext. 3.

Held at the Denver Montclair International School and geared toward families, the fair has tea samples and snacks from all over the world on display.

Demonstrators will show the customs of tea service from nearly a dozen countries, too. Big tea fans can pick up special blends and discounts from the fair’s sponsors as well. 2-5 p.m. Sunday. Denver Montclair International School, 206 Red Cross Way; 303-340-3647. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages 3 to 17. Admission is free with a 1 p.m. campus tour before the fair.

Saturday. Catch up on the latest adventures of the “tRUNks” at Buntport Theater. The troupe’s “live comic book” follows the crime-fighting crusade of a small band of superheroes: The Germ, The Volt, Steven Burge and Scott. This week’s episode is based on William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” but don’t expect a stuffy, classical performance. Instead, be prepared for hilarious hijinks, crazy superpowers and a cliffhanger ending. “tRUNks” runs every other Saturday through May 1. 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday. Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan St.; 720-946-1388. Tickets are $5-$7, depending on a roll of the dice at the door. Wear a superhero outfit and get a $1 discount. Bring cash, the theater does not accept credit cards. For more information, including an episode guide, visit buntport.com.

Live singers and dancers perform traditional Mongolian music, too, and hands-on activities keep kids engaged. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Feb. 7. Denver Museum of Nature and Science, 2001 Colorado Blvd.; 303-322-7009. Tickets to the Khan exhibit are $20 for adults and $11 for seniors age 65 and older and juniors ages 3 to 18.
