The weekend is fast approaching, and this time I’m actually here in person to give you a list of fun things to do.
I haven’t been cheating on you Evansville, I’ve been away shooting our travel show, Route44 (tune in for that, weekends on CBS44 and FOX44 starting next month), but I’m back!
And this weekend is gonna be epic!
This weekend in Newburgh, you can enjoy Newburgh Remembers.
Visit a live re-enactment of a settler’s village selling goods, clothing and souvenirs under canvas tents.
But don’t fear, modern day refreshments, food and treats will be offered by local vendors.
That’s tonight at the Old Lock and Dam Park, at 5:30pm.
Saturday, at 10:30am, watch the raid and capture of Newburgh narrative, the story of Newburgh’s capture by Confederate forces led by Brigadier General Adam R. Stovepipe Johnson and a guerilla band without a shot being fired.
If you’re a fan of The King, you’ll love this…

Tickets are just eighteen dollars, and they will offer concessions.
We gave you a sneak peek, the Warrick County summer musical is this weekend!
Follow the story of Quasimodo, the deformed gypsy boy who is adopted by the villainous Frollo, and kept locked in a tower.
The one day he takes a chance and escapes into the city, he meets Esmerelda, and gets a taste of what it’s like to be an outsider in Paris in the 1800’s.
With a massive stage, and super talented cast, this ain’t your mama’s high school musical.
And even more theatre, Nunsense is this weekend in New Harmony!
The five wacky little sisters of Hoboken have entertained audiences for years by using their talents to raise a bit of the cash necessary to hold funerals for those in their order who have succumbed to eating some bad vichyssoise.
Don’t let the note of tragedy fool you; this musical is a hoot and a half!
