The week ahead: Farmer’s, CNAP, movies and more

Well, things seem to slow down a little this week in Antioch as we all kind of return from a holiday week. Still, let’s break out the calendar and take a look at what’s going on in Antioch this week.

Of course, after a 4th of July break, the Southeast Farmer’s Market reopens from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday. It is held at Southeast Park, right next to the Southeast Branch Library and the Ford Ice Center. According to their Facebook page, they are expect 14 vendors, including the return of The Southern V, which sells baked vegan goods.

Head on out and support this great Antioch endeavor!

The Crossings Nashville Action Partnership will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at The Bridge at Hickory Woods, 4220 Murfreesboro Road. Among the highlights, attendees will hear from Parks Department officials about plans for a 600-acre park behind Cane Ridge High School.

Also Tuesday, the Metro Public Schools Board of Education will meet at 5 p.m. for a regular meeting. Check out the agenda. The meeting is at 2601 Bransford Avenue.

Are you starting to figure out I might’ve been joking about it being a light week?

There are two chances for free movie entertainment Friday. Among the many great things the Library offers, they’ll have their Drive-In Movie Matinee at 2 p.m. Light refreshments are served and the movie is always kid-friendly.

Friday night, the Ford Ice Center will host their periodic Movies in the Park at Southeast Park, adjacent to the Ford Ice Center. The fun starts at about 7 p.m. with games and activities. The movie will start around 8 p.m. This Friday’s movie is Frozen. Popcorn and soda is served! This is the last one of the summer, so head on out and make it a huge one!

Finally, on Sunday is the Antioch High School Cluster Back to School Bash. It will be held in the Global Mall from noon to 5 pm.

It will be a mixed back weather-wise this week for Antioch. There’s a pretty good chance of rain Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday with the other days being partly cloudy. You can expect highs in the mid to upper 80s in the early part of the week, moving into the mid-90s by Wednesday.
