Five Things to Do This Weekend

Get out for Friday night lights, Friday afternoon market. Get to the park.

The weekend is nearly upon us and beautiful weather is expected throughout. Monday is Columbus Day, which means a three-day weekend for some of us. Get out, take advantage of the mild temperatures and bright skies.

• Are you ready for some football? It's homecoming for , and the varsity football team plays East Canton on Friday at Woodridge, of course. Starting at about 7 p.m. The 3-3 Bulldogs have a good shot at notching a win over the 0-6 Hornets to make it a happy homecoming for alumni and fans of Woodridge football.

• Also on Friday is the in the municipal parking lot at Stow Avenue and Second Street 3-6:30 p.m. The fall crop is starting to come in, and we're told the late start on this year's corn crop means a later harvest than usual. There might be some sweet corn. See from earlier this season.

• If football isn't your thing, maybe you can catch Dance Fever at the on Friday evening. Lessons start at 7:30 p.m. From 8:15 to 10:30 pm enjoy dancing to great music for swing, waltz, cha cha, tango, line dances and more. Admission is $10, $7 for college students and seniors with ID.

• Did you know there's a national park in our backyard? Yes, sometimes it's easy to take such an amenity as the for granted. Get on your bike, take a hike along the towpath, drink in the fall colors. Just remember to share the trail with others – it's likely to be a popular spot this weekend. And there's the popular Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Through the end of October the railroad is offering a special one-way fare of $3 for Towpath bike riders. Park in Peninsula or Indigo Lake stations (or any of the others along the railroad), bike to the next train depot, catch a ride back on the railroad.

• On Sunday, the celebrates National Earth Science Week (well, it goes on a lot longer than that) with excursions on Wednesdays through Sundays in October and on Saturdays and Sundays in November. Fall departure times vary. Unless otherwise noted, tickets are $15 adults and $10 children ages 3 - 12 and include the Voices of the Valley audio tour. Processing fees apply to all online sales.
