Saturdays hold a sweetness unlike any other day. Especially Saturday night – going out, staying in. What will you do? Where will you end up? Who will you meet? Our region is a buzz of activity during August and the choices for your Saturday night, are endless. The future of Downtown is bright, but it’s always fun to look back. Here’s a couple of ideas that take you back to the past:
