Big weekend in the works — our Top 5 Picks for fun

It’s a big weekend here in Kokomo.

No. Big doesn’t do this weekend justice.

It’s a huge weekend. Hmmm. Still doesn’t cover it. Colossal. Enormous. Gigantic. Massive. A whale of a weekend.

We give up. We’ll just let our Top Picks for a Totally Awesome Weekend speak for themselves.

  1. All Star Circuit of Champions

Even the name of this event is cool. There is some big-time talent coming to the Kokomo Speedway — aka Indiana’s Baddest Bullring — tonight (Friday, May 19) as part of the All Star Circuit of Champions.

In the hunt will be Rico Abreu, Tony Stewart, Hunter Schuerenberg, Parker Price-Miller, Carson Macedo, Thomas Meseraull and Brandon Wimmer.

Scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m., you should keep an eye out on the speedway’s social media since Mother Nature is who she is.

2) ‘Adventures of a Comic Book Artist’

Kokomo Curtain Call will present “Adventures of a Comic Book Artist” this weekend. We’ve seen pictures, and the costumes alone is reason enough to go!

Showtimes are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday at Sycamore School Auditorium. Tickets at the door, $8 for adults and $6 for kids 12 and younger.

3) Keep Kokomo Beautiful Annual Planting

Downtown Kokomo is beautiful and it’s up to all of those to keep it that way! The Keep Kokomo Beautiful Initiative continues on Saturday, May 20, as volunteers will come together to plant flowers in downtown Kokomo. That day, all of the sidewalk, alley and parking lot gardens in the downtown area will be planted.

4) Kokomo Farmers Market

They posted a list on social media of the vendors who will be there this weekend. It’s kinda long and we are kinda excited.

Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the corner of Mulberry and Washington streets in downtown Kokomo, you’ll find beautiful, healthy vegetables and perennials for your garden, delicious breads and sweets, and produce. Little Sprouts Market Club kids will learn the importance of eating a rainbow of fruits and veggies, and musical duo Fred and Ginger will perform popular hits from the ’70s to ’90s. You can have breakfast and lunch at the market and take home goodies to make dinner!

5) Greatest Spectacle in Tasting

At this year’s event benefiting Bona Vista Program, there will be more than 100 different wine and micro brew samples for you to taste. This is always a fun evening of dining, tasting, and bidding to benefit the nonprofit.

Many restaurants will be featured at the event and they will bring samples of their highlighted cuisines. Loose Change and Docs That Rock will perform and there will also be a silent auction.

Why are we even still talking? We had you at 100 wine and brew samples.

The event is open to people 21 years and older and runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Bona Vista, 1220 E. Laguna St. Tickets are available for $40 at Bona Vista until 4 p.m. Friday, and at all Soupley’s locations until 4 p.m. Saturday. Tickets also will be available at the event for $50.

This list just scratches the surface of the fun planned for this weekend. See our complete calendar of events here and then get out there and live a little!
