Here it is...the holiday season is upon us! Which always brings Hank & Bobby (and now Parker), Florence natives, back home for the night before Thanksgiving--once again in the James Allen Plaza behind Hotel Florence and Victor's!! Sponsored by Tim Norwood and the Victor's crew, the Blue Dogs full band will be set up and ready to go! No opener is scheduled, so it will be "an evening with" the Blue Dogs...likely two sets in the 7-10pm general time frame! Open and free to the public! Happy Thanksgiving!
Our friend Radney Foster (with whom Bobby has written a few songs, including "Half of My Mistakes" and "What's Wrong with Love Songs") has a new record out AND a book of stories by the same title: "For You To See The Stars." Both are typically fantastic.

Some people won’t believe it when you tell them white squirrels exist. We weren’t so sure ourselves until we saw our first one. A relative of the gray Eastern tree squirrel, white squirrels are thriving in Brevard, NC accounting for an all-time high of 40% of the Eastern tree squirrel population. This particular species of squirrel made its way to Brevard in 1949 as a result of a carnival wreck in central Florida and the town is gearing up for their 10th annual celebration of this unique wildlife population.
This nutty Memorial Day Weekend festival has a little bit for everyone. The 2014 festival kicks off Friday night with Love Canon followed by George Porter, Jr. and the Runnin’ Pardners in a free concert Throughout the weekend, bands like Scythian, the Jeff Sipe Trio, Shannon Whitworth, and many others are performing live and for FREE.
The family fun continues with a memorial parade organized by the American Legion on Saturday morning at 9 a.m., followed by a Presentation of the Wreath at the county courthouse War Memorial at 10 a.m.
Thrill-seekers will enjoy the 8th Annual Squirrel Box Derby in which creatively-designed derby karts race down Jailhouse Hill clocking in at 35mph or more. Races are open to kids 8-11 and 12-17, adults and businesses. Contestants compete for trophies awarded for the fastest critter and nuttiest design and the Golden Nut which is awarded to the local business with the best overall speed and design.
For those who are still skeptics, attendees will have a chance to meet Pisgah Pete, a rescued white squirrel, who will make his annual appearance at the festival. In addition, festival goers can learn more about how white squirrels live and what we can do to help rehabilitate wounded or rescued squirrels.
Additional events include the 6th Annual White Squirrel 5K/10K foot race, the White Squirrel Photo Contest, the White Squirrel Dance-off and street festival. This Memorial Day Weekend, there will be plenty of nutty fun for everyone in Brevard.
