Small Town Summer kicks off Thursday and the weekend

Floyd's Small Town Summer kicks off Thursday in Warren G. Lineberry Park on South Locust Street, starting at 6 PM.

Crowd at a Small Town Summer event in 2018.

That’s just one of the many things to do on a busy June weekend, including Floyd’s internationally-known Friday Night Jamboree, along with music at Dogtown, Buffalo Mountain Brewery, Wildwood Farms General Store and other spots throughout the area.

Mother Nature also plans an appearance throughout the weekend with thunderstorms and the assorted havoc that accompany her.  Keep an umbrella handy and let’s be careful out there.

The list of events below comes courtesy of The Floyd Tourism Office.  For more details and information, check out their website.
