The 2015 St. Patrick's Parade in Quincy is at 11 a.m. this Saturday! The forecast is looking pretty good. Partly cloudy skies, temps in the mid-60s. If you've signed up to be in the parade, you can check out the lineup here. Parade participants need to be ready by 10:30 Saturday morning.
This is great news to hear! After announcements have been made in recent weeks that JC Penney, DEB and RadioShack would be closing in Quincy Mall, and last week's closing of Quincy's Steak 'n Shake, KHQA is reporting that Factory Connection will open in the Quincy Mall late in the spring.
Buckcherry is a rock band described as "merging punk grit, gutter attitude, honest storytelling, and razor sharp hooks." The group behind the 2007 Billboard Top 10 hit 'Sorry' will be appearing at The Blue Note in Columbia.
We're not too far into 2015, but the year is already one for the record books for Sam Smith. In February, Sam won multiple Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Song of the Year. Smith will be performing this summer in St. Louis, so be sure to get your tickets!
These last few weeks of winter have been rough. I don't know about you, but I've had enough! At the very first sign of decent weather I'll be out cooking on the grill. A friend of mine co-hosts a barbecue show, and his show has decided that the time change should officially mark the start of grilling season. I think that's a great (or grate?) idea. In June, the Quincy Knights of Columbus will host the Smokin Good Times BBQ Challenge, so it's probably a good idea to start practicing soon. Thousands of dollars are up for grabs!
Couldn't we all use a little bit of summer, right now? Plenty of events and activities are scheduled all around the region during the summer months. Here is a guide to 2015 summer events around the Quincy/Hannibal area.
Did you know that the Kroc Center in Quincy was built in under five minutes? OK, not really, but on YouTube it only took four minutes and forty-one seconds! YouTube user Jim Lawrence posted an awesome time-lapse video that shows the construction of the entire Kroc Center, from dirt patch in the ground to fully operational community center.
Congratulations to the ladies of Avenue Beat, winners of the Nashville Universe Rising Star Award! These Quincy High students have been making trips to Nashville pretty frequently, and they're obviously making a good impression!
