Fourth of July in Marietta

As our nation’s birthday approaches, here is a list of what those still in the ‘Etta can do this weekend.

July 3rd – 15th Annual Red, White, and Blues Festival – 6 to 10 PM – Music starts at 7 PM
Taking place at the Lafayette Hotel, there will be plenty of “blues, brews, and BBQ’s” to go around. $5 dollar admission to get in.  Bring your own chairs, but not your own coolers, mmkay?

July 4th – 5th Annual Marietta Wing Thing – 6 to 9 PM
For those that enjoyed the Rockin’ Rib Fest that happens before Sternwheeler, this stands to be just as good (if not better).  Also happening at the Lafayette Hotel parking lot, several local and out-of-town restaurants compete for several awards (and your taste buds).  Admission is listed as being $10 on the Marietta Times website, or $5 plus cost of wing tickets on the Marietta CVB site.  Also, there will be a wing-eating contest for those brave souls that want to tempt fate.

July 4th – Marietta Fireworks – 10 PM
Dodging all possible reason, you’ll have to head to the Washington County Fairgrounds to enjoy 4th of July fireworks.  Why they arn’t having them at the levy, where the Wing Thing is basically happening, I don’t know.  But if you want to see fireworks, it’ll cost you $5 for the “best seats to see the fireworks” in the Fairgrounds Grandstands.

P.S.  For those of you in Akron, the Rib, White, and Blue festival is shaping up to be pretty good.  There’s a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band in town tonight, and good ribs and food the rest of the weekend, leading up to the big fireworks show Saturday night.  There may be a $5 admission fee sometime throughout the festival, so be ready for it.

Men's Basketball Takes The Court Wednesday Night

Marietta College’s Men’s Basketball team will take to Fenton Court in Ban Johnson Arena at the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center (gasps for breath) for the first home game of the season Wednesday, December 3rd.  Tip-off should be around 7:30 PM.  The game has been designated as a “white-out” for fans, so if you’re coming, wear white and cheer on the Pioneers as they take on Denison.

A lot of students are anticipated to come to the game, as athletes in other sports and the campus’s Greek life have been asked to be the backbone of the  “white-out” effort.  Advertising on campus has been heavy as of last night, with the rock being painted and signs/table cards places across campus.

Later in the week, the Pios will take on Ohio Northern in what will be a kick-off to Ohio Athletic Conference play.  That game is Saturday, December 6th at 3 PM on Fenton Court in Ban Johnson Arena at…oh…you know where.

The game is being broadcast on 88.3 WMRT-FM (Marietta, Parkersburg, Athens, and everywhere in between).  Calling the game will be yours truly alongside long-time voice of the Pioneers, Mike Washbaugh.  Look for pre-game coverage to start around 7:20 PM EST.  You can catch the stream online of our coverage (or WMOA’s coverage) by going to Marietta’s Streaming Audio page.

For a look further into the Men’s Basketball season, check out the schedule here.  And to see how the 2-2 Pioneers look in the OAC so far, check here.  It’s looking like a good season so far (if you don’t count the two 20-25 point losses), and looks like last year’s six wins should be passed (four out of conference wins, two in conference).

Good luck guys!  Should be a good season.
