Ways to enjoy the weekend from home

Using laptop at night to enjoy weekend activities.

While the state-ordered stay-at-home rules and shutdown of many of the tourism-oriented events that make Floyd what it is has put an end to trips out to enjoy weekend activities, the Floyd Tourism Office offers a number of “virtual” events online.

For example:

Friday, April 17, 7-8 pm LiveStream The Friday Night Jamboree: Home Edition!  This livestream features Sammy Shelor & Jesse Smathers of the Lonesome River Band!  www.facebook.com/events/s/livestream-the-friday-night-ja/

Sunday, April 19, 6-9 pm (every Sunday night through May)  Floyd County Open Mic Night

In addition, many restaurants offer curb service, take-out and, in some case, home delivery. It’s best to check your favorite restaurant via phone first because hours and days affected may change.

Have fun and let’s be careful at home and when you may have to venture out for groceries, prescriptions, gas and other things.
