Weekend Wanderings: Things to Do This Weekend

Weekend

The forecast is showing chilly but sunny this weekend. Wondering what there is to do besides traditional Valentine’s Day activities? Here are some events going on around town – do make sure you check that an event is still happening (because of weather interruptions) before you head out; it’s so unpredictable sometimes! Without further ado:

 Saturday, Feb 13

Westside Scavenger Hunt, 10 am – 2 pm, meet at Cookeville Depot

Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead – 8 pm at CPAC (Cookeville Performing Arts Center), $15 admission

Try an Insanity or Zumba class at the Cane Creek Rec Center, only $3 a class!

Get out and about for an easy hike at Big South Fork as part of their Centennial Challenge:

  • Get Started on the Centennial Challenge and Hike with a Ranger along Middle Creek Loop Trail on Saturday, February 13th at 10 am (ET). Meet at the trailhead located on Divide Road for an easy to moderate 3.5-mile hike. The southern entrance to Divide Road is accessible from TN Hwy 154 just south of the Pickett State Park Boundary. Wear weather appropriate clothing. Hikers are encouraged to bring well-behaved dogs, however leashes are required.
  • Bandy Creek Visitor Center (423) 286-7275 or visit us at: www.nps.gov/biso Twitter@BigSouthForkNRR www.facebook.com/BigSouthForkNRRA

Or head on out to the Sutton General Store in Granville, TN for some good, ol’ fashioned southern supper and a show featuring the band, Valley Grass. Dinner starts at 6 pm.

And, last but not least – if you fancy a jaunt out to our neighbor Jackson County for some more good ol’ timey fun, check out Nate Dodson and the Newlyweds at The Little Opry in Gainesboro – 1625 Seven Knobs Rd. Admission is free, show starts at 6:30 pm!

Whether you go out or stay in, enjoy yourself and have a grand time. Cheers from everyone at Roland!

Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day 🙂
