Weekend activities: ‘Tis the season to be folly

Dancing at the Friday Night Jamboree.

Crisp, cold weather greets the holiday partygoers and shoppers this weekend in and around Floyd. Gusty overnight winds ease Thursday as temperatures rise a bit to the mid-40s Thursday before dipping back down to near freezing overnight, then 50 degrees on Friday and 43 on Saturday and Sunday.

Good times to be inside as much as possible and the area provides lots to do with Winterfest Saturday and Sunday at the Floyd Center for the Arts, concerts at music venues Thursday, Friday and Saturday with music at The Floyd Country Store, Dogtown Roadhouse, Buffalo Mountain Brewery, and Wildwood Farms .

On Sunday, the rescheduled Floyd County Christmas parade starts Mabry Funeral Home on South Locust Street at 3 pm Sunday and heads to the intersection with Main and turns North through downtown.

For sports fans, the high school basketball season is underway and the Floyd County High School Lady Buffaloes host Glenvar Friday at the FCHS gym at 7 pm.

Have fun, keep warm and let’s be careful out there.
