New Bern’s Monday Morning Quarterback

School is out for summer!

Graduations have been held throughout our area and the heat is on! The weekend was beautiful–the days may have been hot, but the evening shade with a nice breeze was a real treat. But, if you wanted to get out of the heat, Bear Town Cinema 6 has opened (formerly Southgate Cinema 6) on Trent Road for business, and they are in the midst of renovations—can’t wait to see the finished product. New Bern has a very strong theatre and artistic community.

New Bern Civic Theatre at the Historic Athens Theatre featured Motown and More this past weekend. Excellent entertainment, but, if you missed this production, many more are planned for 2011. The Youth Theatre Workshop begins today and runs through June 24th.

Competitors fish four of the six days starting at 9:00 a.m. today and ending Saturday afternoon with an awards ceremony scheduled for 7 pm Saturday evening at the Crystal Coast Civic Center.

You can’t help but love this area with so many distinct events happening each weekend from outdoor activities such as biking, kayaking and boating to artistic events as the New Bern Downtown Art Walk and our theatre performances. Follow me and I’ll try to keep you posted!
