NO GUARANTEES, BUT THE WEATHER LOOKS GOOD this weekend, just perfect for the Cherry Blossom Festival! I've been doing this event my entire life. This is one SURE sign that spring has sprung. Wonderful food, games, bands, a dunk tank, etc. Get all the information at www.barbertoncherryblossom.com.
AN AKRON BOY RETURNS HOME THIS WEEKEND ONLY at The Funny Stop Comedy Club. Lou Santini, former DJ at Rock 106.9 and WMMS, will perform stand-up this Friday and Saturday. Lou has also appeared on many TV shows. It's always good to see a local guy do well!
THE MOST TALENTED KIDS IN AKRON WILL PERFORM on stage this Friday and Saturday evening at the Civic Theatre downtown. The Miller South School for the Visual & Performing Arts presents it's annual "Big Show" at 7pm both nights. This years performance is "Back To Our Future". Get information at www.akroncivic.com.
MORE LIVE THEATRE CONTINUES THIS WEEKEND around the area. The comedy "The 39 Steps" continues at the Weathervane Playhouse through May 19 only, while "Manning Up" opens Friday and runs through June 2 at the Actors Summit in Greystone Hall in downtown Akron. Tickets at www.actorssummit.org. Bravo!
FINALLY, IF YOUR A STAR TREK FAN, "STAR TREK into Darkness" debuts this weekend at theatres all over the area. The movie is getting great reviews but see it and judge for yourself.
