Music and Easter for this third weekend of April.

The weekend includes a tribute to John Denver Saturday night at The Floyd Country Store.  The Friday Night Jamboree, Bluegrass music at Wildwood and a strong lineup of bands at Dogtown and Buffalo Mountain Brewery provide choices for varied musical tastes.

Good Friday also brings warnings from The National Weather Service of severe storms that begin Thursday in the South and lower Midwest with tornadoes and a threat of high winds, hail and funnel clouds in our area on Friday.

Thursday’s forecast for Floyd and surrounding counties calls for a high of 74 and partly cloudy with morning rain and more arriving in the early morning hours of Friday with thunderstorms throughout the day and into the night before tapering off to showers on Saturday and then sunny by afternoon on Easter Sunday.

Schedule of selected events below comes to us from the Floyd County Tourism Office and more information at their website.

Have fun, be safe and celebrate Easter.
