First weekend of February 2013: Super Bowl Weekend.
The Friday Night Jamboree brings old-time traditional music fans to The Country Store on South Locust Street.
Friday also brings crowds to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, for the circus called Groundhog Day.
Saturday night brings the Floyd Radio Show, a fixture on the first weekend of every month.
There’s quite a few other things going on around the area for the three days that includes a dab of bad weather overnight on Thursday to start things slick and cold and even more rain, freezing rain, sleet and ice going into Sunday morning.
A lot of people may have planned to stay home on Sunday anyway, watching all the hoopla and festivities of the Super Bowl matchup between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
If you do plan to venture out, here are some things on tap:
