The longest running pancake event in the United States is happening right here in our river city this Wednesday.  The Lion’s Club is hosting their 79th annual Pancake Day at the Arena Building, and in addition to pancakes, juice and sausage, this event is served with a hearty helping of community spirit - don’t miss it!

Visit over 100 exhibits at the Show Me Center at the Heartland Home and Garden Show and get everything you need for your abode this weekend.

Stop by the Nature Center’s lobby on Saturday, March 18 and visit with local photographer Dave Willingham, who is showcasing his work involving state parks and natural areas.

Speaking of delicious local food events, deep fryers are firing up on Friday nights in southeast Missouri in the late winter and early spring for the regional tradition of community fish frys during the Lenten season - and you don't have to be a practicing Catholic to join in on the delicious fun, as all are welcome!

Get a taste of this seasonal specialty at one of the many fish frys on Friday nights through Easter at the Knights of Columbus Hall, St. Vincent de Paul and the Scott City KC Hall, among others. Who could turn down catfish and fried chicken, hot out of the fryer, baked beans, coleslaw, hush puppies and homemade desserts?  Many fish frys are all you can eat for an affordable price, and it’s a great chance to liven up a late winter evening with a local specialty.
