I DON'T WANT to hear anybody say there is nothing to do in Quincy. Proof? It's time to gear up for another event-packed weekend in The Q.
It starts Friday with our Noon Blues series in Washington Park. This Friday we have a special double feature, with banjo player Gerry Lunt playing at 11:30 a.m. and the amazing Steve Rees performing at 12:30. Both these guys are incredible musicians, and we'll have food vendors and plenty of shade for you to enjoy right across the street from Second String Music.
Quincy native Ray Burke is back in town for a huge weekend at The Dock - his birthday bash with Humanity Street and friends is Friday night, and Saturday night he's putting on a Forever reunion with opening act The Pimpkatz. Check out the Reunion on the River. Ray now lives in California and he's been planning this weekend for a long time, and both nights will be killer.
Speaking of The Dock, there's a great bicycle event taking place Saturday morning for the Friends of the Trails. It's called the Terry Anastas Ultimate Ride and features challenges for all levels of bicycle enthusiasts. I'm intrigued about the Mountain Bike event through the Bill Klingner trail, because I've been riding my Trek almost every night after work and I've never been through the trail. You can sign up online and it looks like a great family event.
The weather is supposed to be warm as usual, and hopefully the rain stays away Saturday. Get out and enjoy Quincy in the summer!
