  All Day Smoke on the River   Like the event itself, the reputation for Quincy's Smoke on the River barbecue contest continues to grow among pit masters. "We have a good reputation for being right on the river," 2012 event Chairman Art Awerkamp said. "They like that they're on pavement and not in the grass like they are at other events. They like the atmosphere of the event." The event, sponsored by the Quincy Exchange Club, has more than doubled in size since its inception seven years ago. Last year's event drew 39 participants. Once again, Smoke on the River will feature music and activities in addition to all the food. The event features pit masters from Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Indiana. Watching the teams set up shop, Awerkamp said, is one of his favorite parts of the weekend. "It's fun to see guys with this huge equipment roll in," he said. "It's just a hobby for them." Certified judges will be taste-testing the barbecued offerings from Smoke on the River contestants. The grillers will be fighting for a top prize of $6,500. The award ceremony is scheduled for about 3 p.m. Saturday. All proceeds will go toward various Quincy Exchange Club projects. Kessler park. Fulle details at http://www.smokeontheriver.net/

  7:30PM 10:00PM Rent by the Springfield Muni   Rent by the Springfield Muni Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock, and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. Based loosely on Puccini's La Bohème, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city. AIDS and both its physical and emotional complications pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel; Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble; Benjamin has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends; and Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general, always behind the camera recording events but never playing a part. Reserved Seating: Patrons: $14.00 Seniors/Military Patrons: $12.00 General Admission (Lawn Seating): Adults - $10.00 Seniors/Military/Students - $8.00 Children (3-12) - $6.00 2 and Under - FREE www.themuni.org

The 7:30 p.m. start time is an all-new time as well as September being a first time extension of its season for the Springfield Muni Opera and allows enjoying the beautiful fall weather and takes advantage of the earlier sunsets in September. Rent is the cutting-edge musical, based on Puccini’s opera La Boehme that electrified a whole generation of theatergoers. Rent tells the story of seven friends in the AIDS-ravaged New York City of the 1990s: Roger, Mimi, Tom, Angel, Maureen, Joanne and Mark share their struggle to support themselves and celebrate their lives in spite of the crises that confront them, from shifting romantic entanglements to preserving their artistic integrity to the life-and-death struggle with a disease that is threatening almost everyone they know. Through its powerful rock score, RENT explores the lives of a community of young artists who choose to celebrate life while coping with disease and poverty. Contains mature themes and strong language Reserved seating tickets are $14 with a special $12 price for seniors, students, children and Military; and are available by calling (217) 793-MUNI or online at www.TheMuni.org.
