Made for Moms, ‘Big Fish’ and more – Central Alabama Weekend Update (7/26/19)

The annual 'Made for Moms' expo is happening this weekend, among a host of other awesome events to enjoy!

Well, July has been speeding by pretty fast, but we're headed into its last weekend - with that being said, let's take a look at just a few of the events you can enjoy over the next few days. It's time for your Central Alabama Weekend Update!

Made for Moms Expo

There’s not a whole lot happening Friday night, but that’s OK – Saturday morning more than makes up for it with the Made for Moms Expo! Starting at 9:00, there’ll be vendors, speakers, prizes, kid’s corner, photo booth and much, much more. WSFA 12 News will be there hosting the event, and it’s completely free to attend.

And Tarlesha – I hear there’ll even be a “made for dads” man cave for the guys who tag along, too…

An Evening with Daniel Wallace

Later that night, grab your tickets to meet Daniel Wallace, author of Big Fish, at the Wetumpka Depot. He’ll be hosting a discussion about the book at the Wetumpka Depot, followed by a picnic and social in the lobby. You can then attend the closing performance of the Big Fish musical, which will take place at Wetumpka High School.

And don’t forget to check out the video we made on Central Alabama Weekend, where we explored the abandoned Big Fish movie set!

Auburn WING Fest 2019

For those of you living up on the Plains, Auburn WING Fest 2019 is taking over Magnolia Avenue until 9:00 that night. There’ll be some awesome places like Moe’s BBQ, Stinky’s Fish Camp, Mama’s Last Stand, Wings Etc. and many more in attendance. There’s even going to be a wing-eating competition, so if you’re looking to stuff your face, then look no further. If you’re lucky, you might even get to see Aubie!

You think I could beat Aubie in a wing-eating contest, Tarlesha?
