Busting at the seams

Alexis Barker

Newcastle and Weston County as a whole have had lots to offer as far as entertainment and activities for the entire family already this summer with Warm Summer Nights, the Night at the Museum, mini sprint races and the fly-in at Mondell Field Airport, and the fun is just getting started. 

Coming up in Newcastle for fun lovers of all ages is an event that includes concerts, food and fun, thanks to Pinnacle Bank and their second annual 4th at The 4-Way event coming July 4. 

To kick off the festivities to celebrate our nation’s independence, the News Letter Journal, in conjunction with the Weston County Arts Council, will hold a parade that begins at 11 a.m. on the 4th. Staff at the News Letter is encouraging anyone who is interested in participating in the parade to get their floats together and stock up on the candy. 

Rounding out the holiday weekend will be a Newcastle Legacy Series reenactment of the hanging of Diamond Slim, on the 5th. 

Other fun-filled events coming to town in July are the Weston County Health Services annual community barbecue on July 13 beginning at 4 p.m. Remember, this event has been moved to the Weston County Fairgrounds. 

Kicking off the July 13 festivities will be the Wyatt Pillen Memorial Rodeo and Fun Day, starting at 8 a.m. at the fairgrounds. This event, was previously held during the Weston County Fair, features mutton bustin’, mini-bull riding, mini-bronc riding, chicken roping and other activities for all ages. 

July 19 will feature the second of the Warm Summer Nights event on Main Street with fun and dancing for all. 

Moving into July, let’s come together as a community and enjoy the great opportunities Newcastle and Weston County have to offer. Also, it is always fun to stay home and support the people who make this community a place worth living.
