Weekend packed with good events

If you thought last weekend was busy, consider all of the events happening in the Miss-Lou this weekend.

Just a few of the events include:

Friday, the 10th annual Natchez Bluff Blues Fest kicks off with a tribute to the Rhythm Nightclub, one of the first big blues clubs and site of a tragic fire in 1940. After the 5:30 p.m. opening at the Marketplace Cafe, music continues at downtown clubs. Saturday the event will open at noon at Rosalie Bicentennial Gardens. The Saturday event will have an expanded children’s area this year.

Sunday, blues brunches at area restaurants and a gospel concert wrap up the weekend.

Also on tap this weekend is a special reunion of Armstrong Tire workers. The first-ever reunion will be at the Natchez Shrine Building on Morgantown Road from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Ex-employees and their family members, as well as family members of deceased employees, are invited to attend and bring photos of loved ones.

This is a great opportunity for those folks who worked so hard at the plant to remember their time there and the friendships they made.

Meanwhile, the Jefferson Street United Methodist youth will be performing Arthur Miller’s &uot;The Crucible&uot; in a special dinner theater at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

We hope this helps you get a jump-start on planning your weekend. It’s always good to see so many events happening in our community.
