In addition to Moondance Jammin' Country and the many arts and entertainment events at the American Celebration - detailed in the summer festival guide at right - here are a few more options:
Small towns, big art
Art aficionados can double their pleasure with two big events. The Lakes Area Artists 10th annual Show & Sale will be from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday at the Nisswa Community Center. And the 47th annual Pine River Art Club Show & Sale will be from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday at The Warehouse in Pine River. Admission is free to both.
Comedic (if not wedded) bliss
Craig Hostetler, who has a knack for playing nervous guys, highlights a great cast in the laugh-out-loud funniest Central Lakes College play in recent memory. "Perfect Wedding" continues at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday in the Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus. Tickets are $5.
FRIDAY, WEDNESDAY: TELEVISION
Teen angst and a wild race
This week proves summer TV doldrums are a thing of the past. "Degrassi: The Next Generation" returns for a fresh batch of Season 6 episodes at 7 p.m. Friday on The-N. It'll be followed by its new companion series, "The Best Years," chronicling college freshmen. And if you were among the few who took a ride with "Drive" in April, hop aboard for two burnoff episodes at 7 p.m. Wednesday on Fox.
