EDITORIAL, The Decatur Daily
Anyone who can’t find something relaxing to do this weekend isn’t trying. Look in any direction and you will find early autumn celebrations that are bound to bring entertainment and opportunities to visit with friends.
You may even try to squeeze in a high school football game tonight and a college game or two on Saturday.
It’s overload, but a fun challenge.
For us, the hub of events is the annual Riverfest at Ingalls Harbor and the Racking Horse World Celebration at Priceville.
A little more to the south, Hartselle is having its annual Depot Days Festival.
To the north, Athens is on the route for the annual Trail of Tears motorcycle ride, and Florence will be the site of a remembrance and celebration of Native American history.
Huntsville has a full schedule of events that includes Oktoberfest on the Redstone Arsenal field.
If you wish to dance, you may dance. If horses are your interest, magnificent animals bred and trained as show competitors will perform during the World Celebration, which is the largest Racking Horse show in the U.S.
If classic cars are your thing, you can find them.
Just good fun, eating and drinking?
The 15th Riverfest is your best bet, but all of the events are family-appropriate.
So, get out this weekend, take the family, grab a date, a friend or show up single for several days of great entertainment.
