I was in Schuylkill Haven yesterday which reminded me that this weekend is First Saturday! If you don't know what that means, you've never been to the Walk-In Art Center. Each First Saturday everyone is invited to the Walk-In Art Center from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. to meet artists who have their studios there, see the latest exhibits, have their children participate in art activities and have a little light refreshments. It's a great way to be reminded of everything the Walk-In has to offer.
If you prefer performance art, you might want to audition for a performance of one of my favorite plays -- Father of the Bride. Auditions are at the PADCO Building, 1 Second Street, Pottsville on September 5 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The show will be November 3 through 5 a the Majestic Theatre. Watch the Majestic Theatre Facebook page for more details -- all actors must be age 18 and over.
Finally, if you're planning a picnic to celebrate Labor Day you want want to have it a day early. The Schuylkill County Wine Festival is this Sunday at Hegins Park from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are $15, children under age 16 with an adult are free. Along with a dozen wineries, there will be food and craft vendors, music, and a table decorating contest--the theme is Wine and Roses.
