If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, here are a few ideas.
Eugene is shutting down some of the streets in the south part of town to make way for the Eugene Sunday Streets. Some streets between 19th to 27th and from Hilyard to Agate will be car-free. Instead they’ll be open for biking, walking and much more. There will even be free fitness classes at nearby parks. The event is free and happens Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
Check out local art in downtown galleries during the First Friday Art Walk. The tour includes the Mayor’s Art Show, recycled arts and also beer tastings. This month’s walk starts at Eugene Piano Academy at 5th and Willamette. It’s free and begins at 5:30 p.m.
Celebrate National Recovery Month at the Road to Recovery 5K and 10K. Runners and walkers will enjoy the route along the Willamette River. It happens at Maurie Jacobs Park in Eugene. Admission is $20. It begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday.
Take part in one of the longest running disc golf tournaments in the world. Disc golfers of all ages will compete for cash and prizes in the 25th Annual Eugene Disc Golf Tournament in Dexter. All the fun happens at Dexter Disc Golf Course Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $45 to $65.
And ladies, last but not least, you won’t want to miss Working Women’s Wednesday. We’ll be at Sweet Cheeks Winery from 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 12. There will be great views, great wine, great giveaways every 15 minutes! You can meet there or take the Oregon Party Bus from the KDUK studios for $5. Proceeds go to Relay for Life.
