Lots of music, plenty of art and homecoming at Floyd County High School mark the first weekend of Autumn.

Floyd County’s Buffaloes football team faces Grayson County at home starting at 7 p.m. where the homecoming queen will be crowned and alumni will gather to cheer football and remember their school days.

The weekend schedule is still full as cool nights settle in here in the Blue Ridge mountains
