Labor Day Weekend fun, music, events

Music on Locust Street in downtown Floyd on a Friday night.

Yes, this is the last weekend of August and also Labor Day weekend, since September begins on Sunday.

Labor Day Weekend includes yard sales around the area and the massive Gun Show and Flea Market in Hillsville, which starts on Friday and runs through Monday. If the National Weather Service office in Blacksburg is accurate, which is always a big “if,” the weather looks sunny with only a slight chance of rain with highs in the supper 70s and low 80s, accompanied by moderate humidity.

Floyd County High School’s Varsity Buffaloes footballers take the field at home against Christiansburg Friday at 7 p.m. for the season opener.  Volleyball action began earlier this week while golfers at on the courses and cross country is underway.

Have fun and, please, be safe out there.

Selected events below come mostly from the Floyd Tourism Office, with some additions by us.  For more details, check their website.
