A Weekend Full of Fun

September 2, 2010 - Phyllis Sigal

Because this blog is titled "Out and About," it's only fitting that I talk about all of the events out and about this weekend.

Many of us have three days this holiday weekend to enjoy, and we are lucky to have so much to keep us busy.

The Wheeling Vintage Raceboat Regatta begins Friday, Sept. 3, with boat sign-ups. There is live music Friday and Saturday evenings, with racing on Saturday and Sunday. Food vendors also will be on site.

• Oglebay Park is always full of activities for Labor Day weekend. Along with inflatable rides and a rock-climbing wall, the Cascading Waters Fountain Show will end its season with shows at 9 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

• Fort Henry Days takes place Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 4 and 5, at Site One at Oglebay. Music, dance, re-enactors, demonstrations and more are on the schedule both days, beginning at 10 a.m. The battle re-enactments will be held at Camp Russel at 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

• Hundreds gather each year at the Anne Kuchinka Amphitheatre for the Wheeling Symphony's Music Under the Stars free concert. This year's concert,  "Hollywood and Jazz," features works from several movies as well as special guest, jazz trumpeter Chris Tedesco. Janet Sparks and her Suzuki violin students will perform at 6:30 p.m. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
• The 31st annual Woodcarvers Show is set at the Pine Room at Oglebay from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

• "Cyrus," a dark comedy, is playing Friday through Sunday at Towngate Cinema, 2118 Market St., in Center Wheeling.

• And, of course with summer sadly winding down, it's a great weekend to just get outside and enjoy the weather!
