Big Sandy Baptist Church will serve as one of more than 350 churches around the world that will simultaneously host Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, on Friday, February 10, 2017. Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older. This worldwide movement is already set to take place next year in all 50 states and 10 countries around the world…and the numbers continue to grow.

Roll Tide! Happy National Championship week, everyone!  Has everyone thawed out from the weekend yet? Hopefully you found some time to get out and enjoy the snow – without having to actually drive anywhere. This week kicks off with The Game on Monday night, but that’s not all: Plenty of other fun activities are on tap in coming days.

When the summer heat is a thing of the past, Alabama comes alive to celebrate together. Whether you want to enjoy great food, ride a train, or take your dog for a run, you can find a great event to attend in Alabama.

Season’s greetings! We hope you all had a lovely holiday – now get ready for another one. New Year’s Day is almost here, and as we usher in 2017, these are a few of the events happening in and around the area.

Not surprisingly, this week’s community calendar is a little on the light side. Given that this is the week leading up to Christmas Day, fewer events are being held – but that does *not* mean great opportunities aren’t around for family holiday fun. Check out Holidays on the River – go ice skating! Or visit the Tuscaloosa Barnyard’s Country Christmas and enjoy a lovely festive hayride and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus. You can also check out a live nativity pageant in Northport!

Whatever you do this week, we hope it is relatively stress-free and enjoyable. Have a wonderful holiday!

This week’s calendar is loaded with excellent opportunities to enjoy everything our area has to offer.  And if you are still not in the holiday spirit, you will be: Just go check out The ACT’s hilarious production of “The Best Christmas Ever,” or enjoy Theatre Tuscaloosa’s stellar “A Christmas Carol.” The Tuscaloosa Barnyard is doing “A Country Christmas,” and several other area businesses are holding holiday-themed events.

Ho ho ho!
