1. Theater time. The local theater season begins with the letter "A," for Abilene Community Theatre and its production of "Apple of His Eye." The comedy opens Friday, with another evening show at 7:30 Saturday and a matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday. Same plan for next weekend. Cost is $15 for regular admission and $13 for senior, students and military. Mike Stephens is directing this show, which was the first done at ACT when it opened in 1954.
2. Let's go to the fair! The West Texas Fair & Rodeo launched Thursday evening and continues through Sept. 14. There are rides, exhibits, fair food and the rodeo. Admission prices vary, with discounts offered. Due to construction and reconfiguring the Taylor County Expo Center, the midway is set up where livestock buildings were in the past.
A kiddie ride was positioned at the relocated midway at the Taylor County Expo Center for the annual West Texas Fair & Rodeo. The fair continues through Sept. 14.
3. Water you doing Saturday? If you want to get wet one final time, here is your chance. For humans, there is the annual Mudslinger fun run of about three miles at Seabee Park beginning at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. It benefits Abilene Youth Sports Authority. It should not be as muddy last year, when rain created muck start to finish. Also Saturday, at Adventure Cove, it's doggie splash day. The aquatic center closed for the season Labor Day, but dogs will have their day before the pool is cleaned.
