Things to do…


Last week Jimmy and I sat down with Vince Matteo from the Williamsport/Lycoming Chamber of Commerce on Webb Weekly Live. (If you missed the show, you can catch it on our Facebook page or at Webb Weekly Live You Tube channel!) We spent a good amount of time talking about all the area has to offer as far as things to do.
  I am amazed at how often I hear that there is nothing to around here. Quite frankly, it’s just not true.
  With minimal effort, I compiled a list of things to do this week and weekend (Wednesday-Sunday), so here ya go…nothing to do my…well never mind.
  The big event is the Grand Slam Parade (see details page XX).
  The SPCA is also hosting a ‘Yappy Hour’ at the Brickyard from 6-8. This is an on going fundraising effort for the SPCA so grab your pup and have a pint.
  The Crosscutters are home tonight at 7:05 p.m.
  The World Series begins today so there will be games all day/evening. Of course, this will continue through this week and next.
  There is pin trading going on at the Genetti in the Garden Terrace Room every day through Aug. 26th from 2 p.m.-1 a.m.
  The Crosscutters are home against the State College Spikes at 7:05 p.m., and there are post-game fireworks.
  The Pepper Street Band is playing at the Genetti. The Genetti actually has entertainment nightly in the 4th Street Grille & Ale House throughout Little Leage.
  No Maddz is playing at Pine Square at 8 p.m.
  There will be a dunk tank at Pine Square throughout Little League to benefit multiple charities also!
  The Black-N-Blues are playing at the Bullfrog at 10 p.m.
  The Growers Market runs from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Little League Blvd., near Helmrichs.
  The Cogan House Township Harvest Festival goes from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Cogan House Complex in Trout Run.
  The Crosscutters are at home at 7:05 p.m.
  Josh Buck is playing at the Genetti.
  The Billtown Brass is playing at Central Oak Heights in Milton at 7 p.m.
  There is a Hiawatha Concert Cruise happening
  Royal Benson is playing at Pine Square at 8 p.m.
  The Billtown Brass is playing at the Bandshell in Brandon Park at 7 p.m. as part of the City’s continuing Summer Concert Series.
  The River Valley Singers are performing at the Taber Museum at 2 p.m.
  None of this includes the ongoing art exhibits at the Genetti, Converge Gallery, Harvest Artisan Co-Op, the library, the CAC and others!
  As you can see there is a ton of stuff to do in the next few days. Get out there and enjoy it!
  One last note: we are all well aware that traffic this time of year is less than spectacular. Especially of you are forced to travel back and forth between Williamsport and South Williamsport.
  Please be patient. Remember, there are a lot of people from out of the area, state, and country flocking to our city. Be nice to them as they try to navigate the area. Williamsport is not the easiest area to get around if you aren’t familiar with it, so take it easy on our visitors. Allow yourself extra time to get to and fro and lend a hand to strangers if they need help finding their way around.
