This week: bamboo blasting, browncoats and balloons (maybe)

Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

Summer isn’t over yet! Know how I know? Road construction is still going on! There are bridges out and roads closed. And while I’m on the subject, does anyone else who sees these construction signs marked “ITS” start humming Sousa’s “Liberty Bell March“? No? Just me?

On Tuesday you can join the Parks and Rec folks for Invasive Bamboo Blasting, which needs to be a band name or a game I can play on my iPhone. Someone get on that now.

Always wanted to learn to speak Norwegian? You can get your start at the Nordic Center this Wednesday.

Wise Fool Shakespeare opens its season with Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing on Friday at the Teatro Zuccone. The show runs for two weekends.

And there is plenty of festing to be done this weekend with the Chester Bowl Fall Fest, Oktoberfest, Hawk Weekend Festival at Hawk Ridge and Le Festival des Montgolfières à Duluth (otherwise known as the “Where are the damn balloons?” festival).

And, for all you Browncoats out there, there’s gonna be a gorram Shindig at Glensheen mansion on Sunday with dancing and the world premier of a Firefly-themed spaceship bridge simulator. Shiny.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know.

No, I do it too. When I was in 8th grade, my dad and I would retire to the basement to watch Python on PBS. Great memories.
