Making Weekend Plans?


Roll out early Saturday for the best, freshest Mississippi produce.

It's Friday, y'all, and you know what that means: It's time for weekend planning. As always, the Jackson Free Press is here to let you know what's happening, who's in town and where the "don't miss" events are taking place.

Kick off the weekend by taking the family to the Kirk Fordice Equine Center for a special Appaloosa performance night benefiting the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children. Admission is a toy or cash donation. If horses just aren't your thing, there's plenty more to choose from. Every day, events editor Vince Falconi brings you his Best Bets, and tonight is no exception. Choose from "Meet Me at Luigi's," dinner theater, or an '80s and '90s party in honor of your high school reunion.

Still not interested? Check the JFP Events Calendar or the Music Listings to find a play, book signing, or your favorite DJ or live band.

Beat the heat Saturday by rolling out early for fresh local produce. It's the right time for the Mississippi Farmer's Market, the Greater Belhaven Market and the Congress Street Market, starting at 8 a.m., 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., respectively. Later, head to the United Way Day of Action Rally, the ACLU of Mississippi's 40th Anniversary crawfish boil, or a special performance by Renita Martin at New Stage Theater brought to you by the Unita Blackwell Young Women's Leadership Institute.

Start your Sunday on a civilized note with brunch and tunes at Fitzgerald's, Sophia's or Two Sisters. Then extend your lazy day with a visit to the Mississippi Museum of Art, or take in a matinee performance of "Moon Over Buffalo" at the Actor's Playhouse in Pearl.
