But in a way, the events the people of Pike County will have the opportunity to see and participate in this weekend are special.

Brundidge is hosting its annual Arts and Crafts Show, but this year it will be a little different. The show has been expanded, and this year everyone is invited to attend "Catch the Act" at the Brundidge Arts, Crafts and Trade Show.

There will be collectibles, arts and crafts by locals and some people from other areas, offering visitors an opportunity to get their hands on some unique Christmas items for friends or family members.

While the showing is going on in Brundidge, Pioneer Day will be held at the pioneer Museum of Alabama.

At Pioneer Day there will be demonstrations where visitors can actually taste the old-time flavors of smokehouse sausage, cane juice from the mill, buttermilk from the churn and much more.

There will be entertainment by Three on a String and the Atlanta Rhythm Section.

While that seems like more than Pike County can handle, there is more.

Bulls and Barrels will be held at the Pike County Cattlemen’s Complex for those who enjoy professional bull riding and barrel racing. Other events include mutton busting for the kids and calf dressing.

The importance of of these events is that they will offer wholesome family entertainment that people of all ages can enjoy. And as local attractions, people here won’t have far to go to take in the entertainment.

Make weekend plans to attend one or both of the special events Pike County will offer this weekend. With your support, generations of families to come will be able to enjoy the same family-based recreation you have access to this weekend.
