Do you have an event that you'd like to announce? Do you have one to which you'd like to call our attention? Do you have a question about an event? This is the place to do it!

Yes, indeed! That's a great place to start! Thanks, Skyliner!

However, there are soooo many other happenings around town that aren't managed or by GEI. Some of them are pretty well known (the Greek Festival and Art in the Park, for example).

Others are quite obscure unless you're connected.

Others may be fairly well known and just sneak up on us if we're not paying attention, such as this year's Greenville News 5K snuck up on me. :whistling: I wonder if I can finish the course in under an hour again this year? :unsure:

While I understand the need for a Greenville-Specific event thread, Please make sure you constinue to contribute to the Upstate Events thread for larger festivals and goings on that would be of interest the the other citizens in the region as well.

I went to the Auto Show yesterday afternoon. Pretty good, but I found it strange that most brands had their hybrids buried in the corners or back of their areas. This article below talks about fuel consumption being on the mind of consumers, but I had to ask Toyota where the Prius was....and it was in the very back corner....hidden behind much taller SUV's.

I know this is not in Greenville but, if anyone is interested the Arts & Crafts conference is being held at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville NC this weekend. Their will be a incredible antique show, modern Craftsfirms show and loads of cool stuff open to the public. I don't know if there are Conference passes are still available but it is still a great time to visit the Grove Park Inn. Hope to see you in the Great Hall.

The Dog Show was this weekend at the Palmetto Expo Center. I didn't realize how big this must be, but I know someone, or some people rather, who drove up here from the low country for this event.

Nate Lipscomb from the Greenvile Drive and I set a date/time for the UrbanPlanet Tour of the new West End Ballpark. Nate had asked that, due to the construction, we conduct the Urban Planet Tour of the ballpark as soon as possible; therefore, we've agreed on the following date:

  • Sunday, February 26, 2006 at 4:00pm ET

Nate also asks the following:

  • we try to keep the size of the group to 10 (15 maximum).
  • we bring our own hard hats if we have them

Considering the construction conditions at the ballpark, I have elected to leave my toddlers (and my wife) at home for the afternoon. If anyone was planning to bring young children along, you may wish to reconsider this.

My apologies for the short timing on this; however, please mark your calendars and let me know if you'll not be able to attend on Sunday. We're all in for a real treat with this preview. :yahoo:

If it is (or was) the same one they have every year, it is a huge show that draws people in from around the nation. I used to work near the Expo Center and was close to the action and information of the larger events happening there. The whole hill out by the airport would be slammed full of RVs and busses. It was quite a site. :shades:

The final round of the piano competition will take place tomorrow at 1:00 at the Governor's School. I watched it last year and it was absolutely great! If you plan on going, get there a little early. Its a VERY small hall.

There is a chili cookoff in downtown Greer coming up within the next few weeks. I don't have the exact date, but it sounds like fun.

Maybe someone can shed some light?

At least it's not chitlins! I have heard that Aiken has a chitlin cookoff that supposedly make the whole place stink for days! :lol:

P.S. I only learned within the last year what chitlins are. YUCK.
