Beat the winter blues with some weekend fun

The Old Dominion kicks off a four-day weekend as many county and state offices closed Friday for Lee-Jackson Day and the federal holiday for the birthday of Martin Luther King arrives on Monday. Good time to find a warm place to have some weekend fun.
Stay warm and enjoy the weekend.

Old man winter decided to come out for this weekend’s activities, sending temperatures well below freezing Thursday night with a forecast of a high of 41 on Friday, then back in the mid-20s overnight with a high again Saturday of 41 back down to 29 and a high Sunday just above freezing at 35.

This means a good time to find a warm place to enjoy music, dance and have a good time.

The Friday Night Jamboree, music at Buffalo Mountain Brewery and Dogtown kick off the fun tonight with music and more Saturday day and night. A celebration of the life of Martin Luther King Jr. at 10 a.m. Saturday at Floyd County High School, as well as the Indoor Winter Market at the Floyd Center of the Arts at 10 am, are indoors, along with other music and more throughout the day and into the night.

For most county and state offices in the Old Dominion, Friday is the start of a four-day weekend with Lee-Jackson Day Friday and the federal holiday for Martin Lutehr King Jr.’s birthday Monday.

Bundle up and enjoy the weekend.
