Here’s Our Picks For 5 Things To Do This Weekend Around Rutherford County:

  • It’s Football Time In the Heart Of Tennessee: With UT and Vandy having played Thursday night, all eyes turn to MTSU as they kick off their home opener against Alabama A and M. Some tickets are still available and can be purchased here. Kickoff is at 6:00 p.m. A cooler shot of weather this weekend should make for a beautiful day for tailgating and football.

  • Hummingbird Festival: Barfield Crescent Park is home to hundreds of hummingbirds. Many people come to the Wilderness Station to enjoy the chatter and beauty of these tiny birds throughout the season.
