Happy St. Patty’s Day! Time to bust out all the green you own and either celebrate your Irish heritage or pretend you have Irish heritage and celebrate it – doesn’t matter, everyone’s Irish today! This premiere St. Patrick’s Day event includes live Irish music, Irish jig lessons, Irish food, specialty beer, dance performances, costumed characters and fun for the whole family! You can even see the High Falls flowing green!

Raccoon Mountain Marathon
What better way to deal with this sudden reemergence of winter than literally running away from it?
You have lots of options to keep yourself warm this weekend: the full marathon, three different half marathons, or the double half marathon – if you wanna run marathon length, but take a break in between, which makes perfect sense to me!
Shenandoah 30th Anniversary Tour
When country music lovers talk about the greatest groups in the genre, Shenandoah is always at the forefront of any discussion. Fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well known for delivering such hits as “Two Dozen Roses” and the Grammy winning “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” duet with Alison Krauss. Today that legacy continues as original members Raybon and Mike McGuire reunite to launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career!
