Things to Do!
Ok, so I don’t want to jinx anything, but it looks like we may have turned a corner and spring is on the horizon. It’s nice that it isn’t dark, or almost dark when I get home from work, and the snow piles have all but melted, so parking/driving on my street is no longer like playing a game of Mario Kart! My cats have finally adjusted to Day Light Savings time and are no longer surprised by getting fed ‘early’. I, however, am still working on it.
With spring comes all sorts of great things for our area! I find myself, once again, touting that if you can’t find something to do in Williamsport, or the surrounding area – you just aren’t even trying to look. There is so much going on in the area at any given moment, but if you need some help let me offer some suggestions for the weekend.
Of course, there is the benefit for Vhito DeCapria happening at the Son’s of Italy on Saturday. You can read about Vhito and the benefit in Lou Hunsinger’s story on page 6.
The Festival Audition Concert for the Billtown Blues is this Sunday at the Genetti, which will lead to a great Billtown Blues Festival this summer.
Warmer weather also brings people back out for the Farmer’s Market on Saturday and hopefully spring will be in full force for April’s First Friday.
Taking a cue from Penn State, the kids up at South Williamsport High School will be raising money for pediatric cancer this weekend during their Mini-THON.
There is a craft show on Saturday at Williamsport High School to support the Football Booster’s Club.
The Uptown Music Collective also has three performances this weekend. They will be at the Community Theater League offering up a tribute to modern jazz.
The YWCA’s Cuisine & A Cause event is this Sunday also. This is a great opportunity to support a great organization and get some tasty food!
As always, there are a plethora of amazingly talented local bands playing all over the Susquehanna Valley. From rock to country to blues, you can find something to spark your interest within a reasonable driving distance.
So you are officially unable to say there is nothing to do this weekend! You’re welcome. Or, if you had big plans to binge watch season 3 of House of Cards on Netflix and a loved one saw this and is now dragging you off the couch and out of the house, then – I’m sorry.
I was trying to find a good segue between spring and the Crosscutters, but I couldn’t really get behind anything that I came up with. So consider us ‘segued’ because I am happy to announce that Webb Weekly is once again partnering with the Crosscutters and Mason’s Lodge #106 to salute our local heroes on Military Appreciation Night, July 3rd at Susquehanna Bank Park. If you know an active or retired member of our armed forces please nominate them to be part of an exclusive card set to be given away to the first 1,000 fans on Military Appreciation night. You can find the nomination form on page XX or download the form at www.crosscutters.com. Webb Weekly is proud to be a part of this event with the Crosscutters and Masons and we encourage all of you to nominate and honor your military family.
