This weekend you can get fit with donuts as the reward, see a fun and classic play, or check out the Farmer's Market.
1. Racing for Daylight-Ultra Donut Endurance run/walk/bike Event
A few locals are training for upcoming ultramarathons and didn't want to do the longest training run alone. So they thought they would invite the community to join them on Saturday, March 10, beginning at 6 p.m. With fully stocked aid stations, all participants' needs will be met. Race will be run (or biked or a combination of) on a three mile looped course on packed gravel. Teams are welcome to participate too. With a start time of 6 pm, we won't stop until we ring in Daylight Savings time at 2 a.m. and celebrate with donuts from Daylight Donuts. That's how we will be Racing for Daylight. The public is invited to come and participate for as long as they would like. Walk, run, bike or do all three.
2. "Arsenic and Old Lace" presented by PFAA
The Pulaski County Fine Arts Association at Theater on the Square will be performing "Arsenic and Old Lace" beginning this Friday night and every weekend in March. Showtimes can be found at www.pfaa-tots.webs.com. "Arsenic and Old Lace" is a very funny play about Mortimer Brewster who is living a happy life: he has a steady job at a prominent New York newspaper, he’s just become engaged, and he gets to visit his sweet spinster aunts to announce the engagement. Mortimer always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene -- his brother believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt and his great-grandfather used to scalp Indians for pleasure -- but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan. (who strangely now resembles Boris Karloff) returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé -- all while trying to keep his own sanity, as well.
