Music, events and a draft horse pull for the weekend

Draft Horse pull in Check in 2016.

August arrives Thursday with daily thunderstorms and high temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s  and humidity in the 80 percentile range.

August also brings music and events for the first weekend of the month, including the draft horse pull and fish fry behind Check Elementary School Saturday afternoon.

Don’t forget Small Town Thursday at Warren Lineberry Park in Floyd, the Friday Night Jamboree at the Country Store and music at popular venues like Dogtown Roadhouse, Buffalo Mountain Brewery, Wildwood Farms and other locations.

Lots to do.  Have fun and be careful out there.
