Festival Season in full bloom!

Outside of the region:
Ed McBain is dead.

Meanwhile, poor Shakespeare continues to get the postmodern workover.

Lots to do this weekend.

What could be nicer on a summer evening than counting bats? Head out to the Petroleum Centre Indoor Amphitheater (Indoor ampitheatre?) Bat survey from 8 to 10 p.m. You might want to bring blankets or chairs.
The Sandy Lake Community Festival kicks off this weekend. It includes all the usual: sidewalk sales, yard sales, crafts, food, etc.

Speaking of festivals (and we were, weren't we?) The Polk Community Days are this weekend as well from around 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Highlights? How could you go wrong with the Miss Polk and Little Miss Polk contest?

I'm heading back to Erie (was at the Lake today) for the Panegyri Greek Festival on Saturday, but the festival (free admission and parking) goes through the whole weekend. This year I'm winning the cruise to the Greek Island. I mean it.

While I'm there, I might catch out the Erie Invitational Figure Skating Competition all weekend at the Mercyhurst College Ice Center. (814) 825-6513

All weekend:
It's the Lily Festival Juried Art Show at Campbell Pottery All weekend long. And it's free.

Got kids? Check out "Little Red Riding Hood" at Meadville's Academy Theatre (814) 337-8000 Friday at 11 am and Saturday at 11 and 1. $6.

Conneaut Lake Park, which when I was growing up was best known for the Hellhole, is having a Jazz Festival this weekened! I know, take a moment and let it soak in. Admission is $12 per day. (814) 383-5115.
