There's plenty to keep you occupied this weekend — from yard sales to dirt track racing and drinking games to Olympic games.
Plus, it's prime time to be out enjoying the summertime, so go climb a mountain or snag a fish or whatever warm-weather fun you're into.
I will be enjoying one of summer's most popular events this weekend — the wedding.
I'll be standing up for my good friend, Christina, on Saturday and couldn't be happier for her and Kevin.
• If you're not donning a bridesmaid dress this weekend, though, maybe you'd like to meet a world-class athlete.
She'll be available for photos and autographs during the morning session, which begins at 8 a.m., and afternoon session, which begins at 1 p.m.
Plus, Kowal will speak and present an excerpt from the documentary, "FIGHT," which highlights her swimming career, during a Mexican buffet at 7:15 p.m. Saturday at the Boys & Girls Club of Craig, 1324 E. U.S. Hwy. 40.
• Hayden Speedway is hosting two nights of racing this week.
Admission is $8 for adults and $4 for youths 7 to 12. Kids 6 and younger get in free.
The track is at 37900 County Road 53 in Hayden.
Call 824-3070 or (970) 208-7772 to learn more.
• This one's sure to be fun.
There's a Hawaiian theme and all.
RSVP by calling 824-5689 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Carelli's has open mic night starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Sign-up is at 6:30 p.m.
So head on down, kick back with a beer and even warm up your vocal chords, if you're so inclined.
• The Elks Lodge offers bingo on Friday night at 43 W. Victory Way.
The doors open at 5 p.m., and bingo begins at 6:15 p.m.
It should be a good one, considering there will be several community members with tables at the event.
So if you missed the fun the first go-round, head on out there for your chance to embarrass yourself and win some prizes.
• West Theatre is holding over "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" — the excitement continues — and is bringing in the new release "Despicable Me," an animated film about a "bad guy who's not a bad guy." Looks cute.
