Valentines Day and Presidents Day on a single weekend

Banjo pickin' on high: Little Nora Brown (left) and Mac Traynham at The Floyd Radio Show.

Looks like the time to engage in some romantic gift exchange with someone special this weekend for Valentine’s Day.

Also, a day to honor Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. who — one might wonder — are rolling in their graves over what has happened to the position they once occupied as leaders of this country.

Lots of Valentines activities. Lots of music, some dinners, and “interactive murder mystery at the June Bug Center, the Friday Night Jamboree at the Floyd Country Store and music on stage at Wildwood Farms General Store, Dogtown, Buffalo Mountain Brewery and more.

Mother Nature delivers a Valentine’s Day gift of frigid temperatures with a high of just 35 degrees Friday in and around Floyd, slightly warmer with 39 after an overnight low of 15 and below freezing again Saturday night before warming up to the low 50s on Sunday and Monday.

Selected events listed below come from the Floyd Tourism Office. For more information and other events, please check their website.

Bundle up, have fun and please be careful out there.
