Weekend Spotlight Sept 10
Happy Friday everyone! Fall is a little less than two weeks away....and still very few signs of fall-like weather here. But whether it's hot or cool there's still lots to do around north central Florida this weekend.
Our weekend happenings kick off tonight at 7:30 with a performance by the group "Riders In The Sky".
The western music group has been performing together for over 30 years....and some 5400 plus shows later they're still going strong. If you like Disney/Pixar's movie Toy Story 2 you've heard the Riders. They won a grammy award for their album "Woody's Roundup". You can catch them tonight at the Phillips Center in Gainesville. The time again is 7:30. Your text to link...
If you're in a theatre going mood you'll want to check out "45 Seconds From Broadway" at the Gainesville Community Playhouse. The Neil Simon play is about a New York restaurant where aspiring actors and other's seeking the spotlight would get together. There's a show tonight at 8...with shows Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. The playhouse is located at 4039 NW 16 Boulevard in Gainesville. Your text to link...
Outside on Saturday you can step back in time to the 1860's as the Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park hosts a civil war expo. There will be civil war re-enactors, music, storytelling and more. The
festivities go from 10 am to 3 in the afternoon at the park in Olustee...15 miles east of Lake City on Highway 90. Your text to link...
And September in Gainesville means Gator sports are in full swing. Volleyball takes on top ranked Penn State tonight at 7:30....while 90 thousand plus are expected at the Swamp Saturday as the Gators take on our neighbors to the south....the South Florida Bulls. Kick-off is at 12:21 pm.
Have a great weekend!
