It’s supposed to be a gorgeous weekend weather-wise, and there’s plenty to do while taking advantage of the sunshine.

The annual Boonesborough Boogie Nationals kicks off today at Fort Boonesborough State Park and continues through Sunday afternoon. Hundreds and hundreds of vehicles of every type and style will be there, from restored classics and muscle cars to customized pickup trucks, station wagons and everything in between.

There will be cash awards for show participants as well trophies for a number of categories including top five Corvettes, top five tractors, a club participation award, long distance and short distance awards and the President’s award.

Judging lanes will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

There will be vendors on site selling food and automotive items.

The registration gate opens at noon Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Day-of-show registration is $20 per vehicle and includes a dash plaque, T-shirt and two tickets to a dinner Saturday night.

Admission for spectators is $2 a person or $5 per carload. Children younger than 12 are free.

If cars aren’t you’re thing, there will be an art discussion at Leeds Center for the Arts at 4 p.m. Saturday. Gallery curator Rebecca Campomanes will lead the discussion of three pieces originally created for articles in Louisville Magazine in 2015 to accompany articles written by Phillip Bailey.

The discussion will be similar to a book club, and those attending should read the articles in advance.

Hard copies are available at Unicorn Books And Music on Main Street in Winchester or at Leeds.

This event is free and open to the public.

Clark Regional Medical Center’s nurses will host the Walk to Remember beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday at the hospital.

The walk is a public event for the community to come together and show support for families who have lost a child to miscarriage, stillbirth, infant death or the loss of a child at any age.
