Did you have a pleasant Fourth of July holiday? Hopefully so. Mother Nature certainly put on a lightning display last week. Seems she’s trying to quickly erase any rainfall deficit on the year with quick bursts of heavy downpours. Here’s hoping you don’t get caught in one this summer season.

Next up is the Pirates and Mermaids event scheduled for 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 8 and 9. Guests will enjoy craftsmen, artisans, merchants, food trucks, live performances, pirate games and train rides. Feel free to come dressed as a pirate or mermaid, or Renaissance wear. Looking ahead, a Christmas in July outing is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, July 22 and 23, followed by a Peach Festival set for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 19 and 20.
