You can only sit in front of that fire so long, so here are some ideas for activities around Gatesville to get you out of the house this weekend!
Ed Leonard has changed up his schedule this week. He will be at The Junction on 36 for a special Friday night show, starting at 6:30. He is just returning from a few days of performing at The Longboard Bar & Grill, South Padre Island. We hope he is bringing some of the 75 degree weather back with him, or at least a little of that island vibe!
Bare Bones BBQ will feature classic rock by the Waco area band, Touch of Grey. Their performance starts Friday night at 7:00pm.
Gatesville, TX Varmint Hunt participants will brave the cold this Saturday and Sunday for the 2nd in the 2019 series. It's not too late to sign up for the hunt!

There is not much better place to spend a cold and rainy day than at the library! This Saturday, meet local author, C.R. MacBean and hear about his new book The Cruise as he signs books between 10am-1pm.
Our pick of the weekend is the Sweets and Sounds Valentine's Concert on Saturday evening! You'll be entertained by the music and storytelling of Celtic finger-style guitarist Jerry Barlow, while enjoying a sampling of desserts and coffee.
This free event will be held at the Gatesville Civic Center. Doors open at 6:30pm with the performance beginning at 7:00pm.
A little more about the artist:
Acclaimed Celtic fingerstyle guitarist Jerry Barlow is a virtuoso musician, a warm and accessible performer, and a world-class storyteller. His repertoire is composed of a synthesis of traditional music from the British Isles and his own original Celtic-inspired compositions.
Barlow’s music transports the listener across time and space on an imaginary journey to a rustic Irish fishing village or the misty Scottish Highlands or an enchanted English forest. In concert, Barlow brings the songs alive by sharing the history, legend and humor behind the music. His expressive arrangements have been described as “music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.”
