Last chance: High School Musical at The Roxy Regional Theatre. I think you need to get tickets for tonight or Thursday night, because Fri & Sat are sold-out.

It's that time of year again--time for the annual Clarksville Rivers & Spires Festival. The time when regular activity comes to a screeching halt and the streets are closed for a host of irregular activities! (Okay--not the best way to sell the event, but it's true.) This is a huge operation--growing each year. Beginning Thursday afternoon we'll experience street closures and other inconveniences, but it's all well worth it!

This year's event promises to be the best yet, with six stages and block after block of fun and activities. Be sure to hit the arts vendors, set-up in the the lower parking lot of City Hall. Several of our feature artists will be participating and you'll be able to shop their full lines. Then you'll need to roll on over to the wine tasting event at my favorite downtown church--Trinity Episcopal. Each year Trinity hosts about a dozen wineries on its grounds. For the price of a $10 arm bands, you can sample as many of the wines as you like--for as long as you like. They'll have additional events in the area, including a few wine & food pairing workshops. Those are first come, first serve--for folks with the armband. Check out this page for details.

Please, please, please remember, businesses will be open as usual, so if you're willing--we're able. While I wouldn't plan on picking-up a large pieces of furniture this weekend, you'll still find some good deals with many of the businesses.

I do encourage you to visit the Rivers & Spires web site so you can make your plans.

Thanks for your indulgence!
