Mabry Mill opening, Empty Bowls & more

Mabry Mill, one of the most photographed and visited areas on The Blue Ridge Parkway, opens its 2019 Season Friday with food at the restaurant and exhibits of life in the mountains and the famous mill.

The opening comes on this last weekend of April and a weekend that forecasts from The National Weather Service predict some thunderstorms on Friday but a mostly sunny Saturday and a partly cloudy Sunday with a high of 73 and only a 20 percent chance of rain.

Looks like a high of 76 for Thursday, 60 on Friday and 67 on Saturday.

Lots of things to do this weekend with music, events and the annual Empty Bowls charity events at Floyd County High School on Sunday.

Have fun and please be safe!
