There’s plenty of music, a parade, lots of sports and a sprinkling of other activities on tap this weekend. Cheer on the Bulldogs and don’t miss a huge concert for our neck of the woods.
■ It’s a big deal when a second-place finisher on a national TV show hits Craig.
Street Corner Symphony, which was the runner up on NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” performs here at 7 p.m. Sunday at Moffat County High School, 900 Finley Lane, thanks to the Craig Concert Association.
Tickets are $20 for adults or $10 for students. But, the better deal is a year membership, which includes four more concerts, for $35 for adults, $10 for students or $80 for a family.
Get tickets at Bank of Colorado or the Craig Chamber of Commerce.
