Weekend Planner : 6/11/2021
Happy Friday everyone! Theatre, music, sports, and something for the birds this weekend!
The Gainesville Community Playhouse is back with its latest production. The Odd Couple revolves around two unlikely roommates: the laid back, sloppy Oscar Madison and his rigid, neat freak roomy Felix Unger. The Neil Simon play led to the hit movie and tv show. Shows are tonight and Saturday night at 8 with a matinee Sunday at 2 pm.
As we briefly mentioned last week, the City of Gainesville’s Free Fridays Concert Series is back.... live at Bo Diddley Plaza! The event, which runs through October, features local and regional musical talent. Featured this week is The Real Deelz. The trio will play classic rock and Americana. It starts at 8 pm tonight.
In Marion County, the Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series rolls on... on Fridays through the month of June. The event, from 7 to 9 pm tonight, features the pop, jazz and rock sounds of The Vindys. It’s at Webb Field at the Martin Luther King Junior Recreation Complex in Ocala.
For sports, the Sunshine State Games continue this weekend. The games are “Florida’s own Olympic-style sports festival, created for amateur athletes of all ages.” In our part of Florida, you can see Artistic Swimming at the O’Connell Center through Sunday. Archery is on tap this weekend at the Easton-Newberry Archery Center and at Gator Bowmen Range.
As for the birds, the Exotic Bird Expo is Sunday in Gainesville. You can not only check out a big variety of birds, but also look for cages, toys, bird food and more. It’s from 9 am to 4 pm at Stayable Select Suites (formerly the Wyndham Garden Gainesville), located at 2900 Southwest 13th Street.
Enjoy your weekend!
