Whoever said “there is nothing to do” in Natchez or the Miss-Lou obviously hasn’t been paying attention.

Fourth of July weekend was packed with concerts and firework shows on the Natchez Bluff and boating fun on Lake St. John and Lake Concordia. There is still more fun to be had before summer’s end.

At 2 p.m. each Wednesday in July kids can enjoy a movie matinee at Judge George W. Armstrong Library. Showing next week is Disney’s “Luca.”
