Have fun during a busy May weekend

The Kind on stage at The Pine Tavern.


Bicyclists kick off the Tour de Floyd Saturday, the Kind celebrates its 33rd Anniversary and Reunion, an all-day sing celebrating “Liberation & Belonging in the Community Through Song,” and scanning photographs that celebrate 1969 are just part of a full May weekend in and around Floyd County.

Lots of things to do and lots of places to visit.

Tour de Floyd is a 62-mile ride — half of it on the Blue Ridge Parkway – with 5,300 feet of climbing — starts at 8:30 a.m. at Chantilly Farm.

The Kind, covering songs of The Grateful Dead for more than three decades, starts its anniversary celebration at 9 pm Saturday in the pavilion of Pine Tavern.

The Floyd County Store has both the legendary Friday Night Jamboree starting with the Gospel Hour at 6:30 pm with lots of dancing and old-time music beginning at 7:30 and then the all-day sing on Saturday, along with other events, including the Sunday Old Time and Bluegrass jams.

The Floyd County Historical Society hosts the scanning of photos from 1969 Saturday from noon to 4 pm as part of their support of “50 years of Love” celebration by the Floyd Tourism that will run this summer.

Plus music from venues at Dogtown, Buffalo Mountain Brewery, Wildwood Farms General Store and more.

Selected evens listed blow come from Floyd County’s Tourism Office.Β  More details and other information on their website.

Have fun and please be careful out there.
