One lucky donor will have the opportunity to shave the knight's head. This event will include food, an auction, music and more!

Watch history come to life at the Sgt. Floyd Memorial Encampment. There will be children's activities, historical reenactments and demonstrations and even a recreation of the burial of Sgt. Charles Floyd. The festivities will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 17 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 18 at the Sergeant Floyd River Museum and Welcome Center at 1000 Larsen Park Road.

One show is at 7:30 p.m. and the other is at 10 p.m., each on Aug. 17 at Anthem in the Hard Rock, 111 Third St.

Marty's golf tournament

4. The balls go in the holes

Want to golf for a couple truly amazing causes? Then sign up for the Fourth Annual Marty's Charity Golf Tournament. Space is limited, so make sure to sign up.

Breakfast and bloodies start at 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 17 at Marty's Tap, 1306 Court St.

Randall Shreve cover 3

Fayetteville, Arkansas musician Randall Shreve will bring his unique brand of music to The Marquee on June 14.

5. In the loop

One of The Weekender's favorite musical artists is coming back to create songs right in front of you on stage at The Marquee. Fayetteville's Randall Shreve takes several instruments and loops them together, then adds his haunting voice for a musical experience you can't find with any other artist. Some songs ring of P.T. Barnum's sideshows and some will bring grown men to tears (something this Weekender writer has seen happen). Shreve welcomes you to his show that starts at 9 p.m. on Aug. 17 at The Marquee, 1225 Fourth St.


6. See you on the dark side of the booze

Toss back a bit of the old tonsil varnish to lubricate your mind and enjoy the sounds of Pink Floyd with the midwest's premier Pink Floyd tribute: Floyd. The show starts at 9 p.m. on Aug. 16 at The Marquee, 1225 Fourth St.
