• Boy, am I excited for this one.
Check them out at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Moffat County High School auditorium, 900 Finley Lane.
If you have a season membership — which is $35 for adults, $10 for students or $80 for a family — the show is free. The show is $20 at the door for those without memberships.
• For some great local music, check out the Friday Night Coffee House, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Friday at Serendipity Coffee Shop, 576 Yampa Ave.
Sign-up is at 6:30 p.m., and music begins at 7 p.m.
Call Bill at 620-6589 to get more details.
• Pull a rabbit out of your hat and put a smile on your kiddos' faces at the fundraising magic show on Sunday afternoon.
There are tickets that are good for free admission for children younger than 13 or $1 off for adults available at businesses around Craig.
• A car show and a good meal would make a nice weekend activity.
It's all that much better when you can help someone in need.
The OP Bar & Grill, 534 E. Victory Way, hosts a fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, complete with a car show, silent auction and spaghetti dinner.
The meal is $7, and all proceeds will benefit Maria Ellis in her recovery following a car accident.
Call Diane at 824-8918 or Karen at 824-8342 to learn more or to donate.
• Go Bulldogs!
It's Homecoming week, so don your blue and white and cheer for the home team.
Community celebrations include a bonfire from 8 to 9 p.m. today at Moffat County High School, 900 Finley Lane.
The annual parade begins at 2 p.m. Friday and runs from Craig City Park to Safeway. The high school science department's regular feature, the cardboard boat regatta, begins at 3:30 p.m. Friday at Loudy-Simpson Park and is always a hoot to watch.
Don't forget, of course, the main event as the Bulldogs take on the Palisade High School Bulldogs at 7 p.m. at the high school. Homecoming royalty will be introduced before the game, and the marching band will perform a special half-time show for the audience.
• Back by popular demand.
Elkhead Reservoir, originally scheduled to close today, will remain open on the weekends through October, due to "overwhelming" public response.
So get out there and enjoy the water. Call 276-2061 if you have questions.
• Get your politics on.
As the Nov. 2 general election nears, it's time to educate yourself. One opportunity is a public forum on Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 from 6 to 8 p.m. today in the council chambers at Craig City Hall, 300 W. Fourth St.
