This week, we celebrate Labor Day, and there are still a lot of summer activities happening. Wineries will be hosting a lot of activities and music over this three-day weekend, so check the schedule of your favorite to find out what they have going on. The Eugene Emeralds are playing nightly games through September 3. Outdoor concerts on the plaza at the Hult Center are still going on, this week with singer/songwriter Jessica Fichot. This Friday is the First Friday Art Walk, so gear up for that and also head to New Zone and Karin Clarke Gallery for artist receptions. Keep shopping at the Saturday Market while the weather is still nice, and get your tickets for Ballet Fantastique’s performance at beautiful Silvan Ridge Winery for a late summer outdoor concert in wine country.
