Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Here are just a few of the things going on in the 812:
1. Watch A Movie Outside On A Giant Screen While Sitting In Your Car
The Georgetown Drive-In is back!!! This drive-in is a local classic in the 812. If you've never been or you haven't been in a while (ahem, Covid), then it's time to get back out under the stars and watch a movie with your fellow 812-ers. Bring a blanket and/or chairs and get there early to hear live music from Donnie Dynamite and the Dynamos. The concession stand will be open.
May 14, 15, & 16, first movies start at 9:10, but get there early to claim your parking spot. Tickets required - purchase onsite.
2. Buy Other People's Stuff On The Side Of A Highway
It's that time of year again for the 'Highway 60 Yard Sale and Flea Market' in Borden. This year they will have three different locations with plenty of goods and wares for sale. You can shop to your heart's content at Borden Community Park, First Christian Church, and Borden Bargains. There will also be a fish fry from 11-3 as a part of this event.
