Music, fun and a grand opening

A packed dance floor of The Friday Night Jamboree.

Busy weekend in and around Floyd County and Southwestern Virginia.  Also, tax day approaches at the beginning of next week (for those who make enough money to owe taxes).

This weekend is also Grand Opening Time for the rejuvenated County Sales, the place to find the best collection of Old Time and Bluegrass musical recordings (and video), courtesy of The Floyd Country Store.  The fun begins at 10 a.m. Thursday and continues through the weekend.

Plus music at The Friday Night Jamboree, Dogtown Roadhouse, Buffalo Mountain  Brewery, Wildwood Farms, Tuggles Gap and more.

Looks like scattered thunderstorms on and off Friday through Sunday but, hey, the fun is inside and get out and enjoy.
