Circus, tractors, music and more this weekend

Dance Afire lights up the night at last year's Circue du Floyd.

Cirque du Floyd hits the stage at Chantilly Farm with breath-taking acts on the wire, along with juggling and more.

The sound of tractors in the air this weekend for the annual Tractor Run as one of the primary tools of farm use tour the county.

And, of yes, there is music:  Small Town Summer in Warren Lineberry Park on Locust Street Thursday, The Friday Night Jamboree Friday, bands galore at Dogtown, Buffalo Mountain Brewery, Wildwood General Store along with gospel music at the Volunteer Fire Station in Willis and more locations.

Plus The Old Dominion continues to celebrate 50 Years of Love, honoring a half-century of Virginia is for lovers.
