Also on Saturday, spend a day on the water at the Altavista River Festival. There will be boat races, a canoe and kayak obstacle course and a bass fishing tournament. The Skyler McCurley Band will be performing all day, so you can bring your lawn chairs and have a great time with the family. That's 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.at English Park.
If you're more of an indoor person and want a more relaxing evening, a great roots rocker is performing at the Ellington in Lynchburg on Saturday.
