The Cape Girardeau Municipal Band is back at the Capaha Park Band Shell with their first concert of the season on Wednesday, June 7th at 7:30 p.m., where they’ll play Rock and Roll tunes.

Speaking of tunes (at twilight), the Moho Trippers take the stage at the Common Pleas Courthouse Gazebo on Friday, June 9th at 7:30 p.m., where you’ll hear jazz standards, soulful originals and cabaret classics.

Chalk and your imagination are all you need to create your own fun photo at the Cape Public Library’s Sidewalk Chalk Photos on Saturday, June 10th from 9 a.m. - noon.

The Glenn House, a restored Victorian mansion with views of the river on Spanish Street, has been a classic part of Cape Girardeau’s offerings to visitors since it opened for tours in 1980 after a substantial restoration and regularly offers tons of reasons to visit from their Christmas tours to their inclusion in First Friday.

This spring, as they open for their May-October touring season, the folks at the Glenn House are bringing the stories of the domestic staff to life with their Voices from the Backstairs tour, featuring the newly restored servant’s quarters.

Members of the Historical Association of Greater Cape Girardeau, the group that operates the Glenn House, rolled up their sleeves and went to work fixing damage to the plaster ceilings and walls, painting, tracking down a period correct light fixture and rewiring it and selecting furnishings at local antique shops that would speak to the experiences of a servant from the late 1800's to the early 1900's.  The room is now shipshape and ready for you to take a tour and walk in the footsteps of the Glenn family’s servants when stop and listen to the voices from the backstairs.
