GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Happy Friday everyone! Fun on the court, on the stage, and outside this weekend!

It’s a busy weekend for Gator sports. The Gator gymnasts are back from their successful Georgia road trip. They take on Arkansas tonight at 8:15 in the O’Connell Center. The men’s basketball team faces Oklahoma State Saturday afternoon at 4. And the women’s hoops team plays South Carolina Sunday at noon. The men’s tennis team is also in action at home this weekend.

This is the last weekend for the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire in Gainesville. The event features the work of over 160 artists and craftspeople from around the U.S. The food court has all kinds of food like turkey legs, blooming onions, and more. Jousting knights, knife throwers, jugglers, and olde world games are part of the fun, too. It’s Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 to 5 at the new location at 9409 Southwest Archer Road.

In Ocala, we have a couple of musical suggestions for you. Alter Eagles, the Eagles tribute band, is performing favorites from Hotel California to Lyin Eyes Saturday night at 7. It’s at the Circle Square Cultural Center. For classical, the Ocala Symphony Orchestra will take you on a tour of Nielsen’s Symphony Number 2 - The Four Temperaments. It’s Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 3 at the Reilly Arts Center.

Back in Gainesville, the Gainesville Community Playhouse features its latest show, Return to Sunset Village. The sequel to the off-Broadway show, Sunset Village, revolves around the active lives of a colorful cast of characters living in a Florida retirement community. The play, by the way, contains adult humor and content. Shows are tonight and Saturday night at 8, and Sunday at 2 pm.

How about a day on the farm? Check out Mayhem Ranch Farm Day Saturday and Sunday in Morriston.

Enjoy your weekend!
