 Had a tough week at work? Depressed because the kids are back in school? Cheer up – the weekend’s




 here, and there’s plenty to do – with kids and without. The                   Carolina Panthers
 play their final home preseason game on Thursday night, and an Extreme Tailgate Party is planned
 in downtown Charlotte before the game. The Hurricane Hugo Juggling Festival, including two
 nights of fire juggling and a world record attempt for most simultaneous paddle ballers, runs Friday to
 Sunday. And don’t forget the festival’s Vaudeville Extravaganza Saturday night at Davidson
 College. In Charlotte, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte will host a tribute to jazz great
 Dizzy Gillespie, and both Davidson Day and Hough High have high school football games on the
 road.

 On Saturday, a Punt, Pass & Kick competition will be at Smithville Park in Cornelius, the two-day
 F2C Control Line Airplane Team Racing Trials begins at David B. Waymer Flying Field in
 Huntersville, while Fall Into Huntersville begins at Discovery Place Kids in downtown
 Huntersville. On Sunday, the Davidson-based Sunday Union Band will perform at Davidson
 Concert on the Green.
