WHAT TO DO THIS WEEKEND?

SATURDAY
Main Street Amherst is proud to present its 5th annual Dancing on Main Street event. The festivities kick off at 3PM on August 2nd in historic downtown Amherst. Dancing on Main Street is a community music festival, which showcases top area bands and helps promote downtown Amherst's great taverns and diverse restaurants.

The event begins at 3 pm and the fun continues until midnight. Premier Toyota-Scion of Amherst has partnered with us again this year to help bring this FREE event to our downtown.

Main Street Oberlin invites you to join them at the Family Fun Fair on Saturday from 10AM to 4PM.

The event features live music, good food, sidewalk sales and a sure hit – a dunking booth. Scheduled to be in the hot seat are: City Council President David Sonner, Eastwood School Principal Brian Carter and Councilman David Ashenhurst & Scott Broadwell. To see the scheduled times you can visit
www.mainstreetoberlin.org. Peppy the Clown will also make an appearance at the event. As with most events there is also a car show scheduled. One other event that kind of sticks out – Paper Shredding will be held at the Oberlin Police Station.

SUNDAY
The Lorain Firefighters Local 267 invites ALL BIKERS to the 5th Annual Pat Caruso Memorial Poker Run on Sunday August 3rd.

Registration starts at 10AM at L.F.D. Station #7, 2111 W. Park Dr. in Lorain. Cost of run is $15 per bike or $25 with a rider. Price includes food, beverage, and live music by Renegade.

First bike out is at 11:00 and last bike in at Willow Creek Hall at 5:30. $150.00 goes to the best hand and $50 to the worst. There will be a 50/50 drawing and many door prizes raffled off – tickets for each will be 1 for $1 or 6 for $5. This years run is sponsored by Caruso's Cabinets, L.F.D. Local 267, Sprenger Retirement Centers, and Shagovac Heating and Cooling.

This year’s profits will be going to the Lorain County Chapter of the Rd Cross.

This ride was started in 2004 when Firefighter Pat Caruso was diagnosed with cancer. He passed away that summer and this is our way of keeping him alive in our thoughts and hearts.

The MAD Factory invites you to join them at the Oberlin High School Auditorium as they present – “The Butler Did It, Singing!”

This is a delightful, audience pleasing, musical spoof based on Mr. Kelly's enormously popular hit The Butler Did It. Miss Maple, a flaky society dowager, invites a pack of zany detective writers to a spooky house on an isolated island and forces them to impersonate their fictional sleuths. For entertainment, she arranges some "classic" touches — a hairy face at the window, the threat of an escaped lunatic, no communications with the outside world. What she did not arrange was the body on the sitting room carpet! It's up to seedy Chandler Marlowe to solve the bizarre case and he makes a sidesplitting mess of it!

Shows run Friday & Saturday @ 8PM and Sunday @ 3PM.

Although admission is FREE, donations are gratefully accepted. Doors open 30 minutes before the show. For More information call The MAD Factory at 440-774-7062 or visit their website
