Weekend To Do List, Sept. 14-16
There are so many exciting things happening each week in and around Knoxville. Sometimes it can be overwhelming trying to plan a weekend that everyone can enjoy. Here are some of our top picks for things to do this weekend that is sure to make everyone happy!
When: Saturday, Sept. 15th 4:30pm-7:30pm
Where: Oakes Farm / 8240 Corryton Rd. Corryton
Same great event as last year: BBQ, Beer & a band, just a little later in the year, September instead of June! They plan on starting with the Kid's Obstacle Course at 4:30p, then the 5k run starting at 5:00pm. Come ready to run and eat. By popular demand they will be doing the "barefoot adult running" of the obstacle race afterwards, which may be the most entertaining part of the evening. Come out to Oakes Farm in North Knox County to partake in good cross country run and BBQ dinner.
