Weekend To Do List - Safer At Home Edition

Each week we bring you the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List. We don't want to stop now! As our counties and state start opening back up many are still staying home and being cautious. Step by step we will get back to "normal," but while we wait, we want to bring you plenty of great things to do. It's easy to go stir-crazy at home, but thankfully there are a lot of ways to stay active and safe while you're practicing social distancing. 

So let's try another week of the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List: Safer At Home  Edition! 

Do: Southland Farmers Market (drive-thru)

Head to Southland Books & Cafe for a pop-up drive-thru farmers market at Little Five Points - Maryville! Four Daughters Farm and Jammin Jams TN will be joining them! There will be fresh bread and an assortment of their most popular items, jams and preserves from #JamminJams, and fresh produce from #4DF!

Please respect other people's space, practice social distancing, use hand sanitizer, and remain in your vehicle if possible. Thanks!

Family: Knoxville Children's Theatre Virtual Plays

Knoxville Children's Theatre has been on hiatus like the rest of the country due to   COVID-19, but there is an end in sight. Their next production Peter Rabbit has been rescheduled for June 12 with limited seating inside the theater. Some of the student-actors were disappointed so they took matters into their own hands and insisted "the show must go on!"  You can check out their KCT Online Story Theatre on Facebook to see stories read by the kids and an adaptation of one student's favorite stories.
