Here’s a look at a few things to do this weekend.
I know I said it last week, but it’s so true that I need to say it again: I love fairs. There’s only a little bit of the Garfield County Fair & Rodeo left, so take advantage of it. Friday is the best day to go, for a few reasons: There’s an art sale, pie-eating contest and, most importantly, Gary Allan concert. For a full schedule of events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, visit http://www.garfieldcountyfair.com.
Take a little day trip to Marble for the town’s free arts and acoustic music festival, Marble Fest, from noon to 10 p.m. at Marble Millsite Park. There will be vendor booths selling food, crafts and art, a Frisbee golf course and a basketball court. BYOB, but no glass.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
Glenwood Beauty is hosting a Cutathon to benefit Dee Lucas, who is fighting leukemia. Students and area stylists are donating their time to perform haircuts, styles, facials, back treatments, manicures and pedicures. There is no set price for any service, but all are asked to donate whatever they feel they can afford. All proceeds will go to the Lucas family.
