The art of rock balancing. Have you ever encountered a beautiful stack of rocks near the coast? Learn the art behind rock sculptures and how it goes beyond getting rocks neatly balanced. Rock stacking is part meditation while working with physics and gravity. The gathering is this Saturday at Crissy Field near the Warming Hut from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All ages welcome. The event is free. 

The Legend of Zelda comes to the San Francisco Symphony! Tickets are still available for Symphony of the Goddesses, music from The Legend of Zelda this Saturday night. Designed to be a journey as epic and thrilling as the Legend itself, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses presents the music of this celebrated franchise with all-new arrangements directly approved by franchise producer Eiji Aonuma and Nintendo composer and sound director Koji Kondo (Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda). Tickets for the performance begin at $45 each. Showtime is 8 p.m.

Star Stories! Grab your backpack and head to Chabot Space & Science Center on Saturday for an evening under the stars. The myths behind the constellations will be explained through stories about the night sky as told throughout history. If night sky conditions are or become poor for viewing the program will take place inside one of Chabot's historic telescope domes. The event runs from 8:30 - 10 p.m. and costs $15 per person. Kids under age two are free. 

Please note: The Tech Museum will be closed this Sunday through Sept. 4 for annual maintenance.
