Michelle Balleck: Celebrate this weekend with a bang

It's a weekend for friends, barbecues and remembering why we honor the Fourth of July in the first place.

And, although that reason does not revolve around explosives, it's still a lot of fun to see the annual fireworks display light up the night sky.

This year, the Craig Fire/Rescue display begins at nightfall Sunday. The fireworks are lit south of the Moffat County High School football field and can be seen from just about anywhere in town.

So, pull up a lawn chair, cuddle up under a blanket and enjoy.

The Moffat County Little Britches Rodeo is in town this weekend, too, so saddle up and head on over to the Moffat County Fairgrounds.

Performances begin at noon today and 9 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Best part: It's free entertainment by hard-working kids. Pretty cool.

Don't forget the Farmer's Market, which runs from 4 to 7 p.m. today at Alice Pleasant Park in downtown Craig.

It's every Thursday throughout the summer, and there are some neat locally grown and made items up for grabs. It's worth checking out.

The Cottonwood Classic golf tournament tees off at 7 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Yampa Valley Golf Course.

Unfortunately, the tournament's full. So be sure to sign up early next year.

I love it when good things happen to good people. And by good people, I mean women everywhere.

The Sports Page Bar at the Holiday Inn of Craig, 300 S. Colorado Highway 13, has moved its Ladies Night up to 6-7 p.m. on Thursdays so we can head out after work. Women drink house wine, domestic drafts and well drinks free for the hour. After that, drinks are half price.

Can't beat that deal.

West Theatre is showing "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" — which I understand drew quite the crowd for its midnight showing earlier this week — and "Toy Story 3."

Redbox has some new movies out, including "The Wolfman" and "The Crazies," if you're into that sort of thing. Me? Not so much.
