I’m looking at the forecast and the sun will shine on the weekend!
We’re running into it with a fashion show, trivia night, a marathon, a silly birthday AND a symphonic concert. Hey, don’t say I didn’t give you enough to do!
Dominion Runway Show at the Arts Center of MS – Friday, 7 p.m.
L. Lashley presents “The Dominion Runway,” a night of fashion celebrating unity and culture with models, designers, and fashionistas. The show is presented by the Greater Jackson Arts Council and Visit Jackson. Tickets are available.
Trivia Night at Highland Village – Friday, 7 p.m.
Craft beer, prizes and a little leftover carnival fun? It’s a happening hang for a Friday night in the south plaza (under BRAVO!) And it’s free.
MS Blue Marathon in Downtown/Belhaven/JSU – Saturday, 7 a.m.
Whether you run it, walk it or just watch it, Saturday’s race – on a new 13.1 mile double loop course – brings a USTAF certified event to the City With Soul with Mississippi music as an underlying theme. And, remember my mention of the weather? No ice, no rain… a perfect morning to celebrate these athletes and show them your Southern hospitality. I’ve out together a helpful race weekend guide. Use it to follow along!
