Too busy to blog

Yes, the weekend is here, but can there be anything going on other than the Ice Cream Social? I honestly haven't time to check.

The Ice Cream Social is from 1-5pm in Wilber Park! Park in the High School Parking lot and join us for science in the park activities, entertainment on the stage, free ice cream, remote control aircraft and much more!

I do recall that the Outlaw's opening night is also on Sunday, so meander over to Damascke Field after you've had your fill of ice cream.

Still looking for something to do? I recommend, and the Daily Star's online events calendars.
