Friday Morning Preview: Weekend Events

Posted: Updated:
It's time for our Friday morning look ahead at some events going on around the Erie area today, and over the weekend.

The Brig Niagara heads out Friday afternoon for a special "Friday the 13th" public sail.

If you're not too scared, you can join Captains Walter Rybka and William Sabatinni as they tell superstitious tales of the deep.

The public sail heads out at 1:00 p.m. and depending on the weather, the Captains will decide which course to take.

On Saturday, the popular new outdoors retailer "Field & Stream" will hold a Grand Opening Celebration.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m., they'll have live entertainment and a chance for you to get some free tips on hunting and fishing from the pro's.

Then, heading down to Presque Isle, the Three-Mile Isle is set for Saturday at 10 a.m.

The race features 14 man-made obstacles.  Participants will have to navigate 3 miles through Beaches 10 and 11 and along shoreline areas.

Another race of very different proportions is also happening on Saturday.

The "Jog and Hog" starts at 8:30 a.m. and requires you to run 2 miles, eat 6 of Staganelli's famous pepperoni balls,  then run 2 miles back.

And last but not least, on Sunday it's a race for all of the dads out there.

Check-in for the "Extra Mile" Father's Day race, starts at 8 a.m.  That race is also out on Presque Isle.

Have a great weekend!
