There’s quite a bit going on around Richmond County this weekend.

The town of Ellerbe will be hosting “Friday after 5” on May 19 from 5-8 p.m.

The event will feature music from the JDMT Band and comedy from Kashua Perfected.

Several food trucks are also scheduled to be on-site: Burger Bros, Alford’s Smoke N Grill and Scoops Ice & More.

There will also be bounce houses for kids and cornhole.

Down at the other end of the county, the Hamlet Lions Club is hosting a spring carnival at the fairgrounds starting Thursday and running through May 21 featuring rides, games and fair food.

Hours are 5-10 p.m. weekdays, 1-10 p.m. Saturday and 1-7 p.m. Sunday.

On Saturday, mini-trucks return to the Richmond County Airport for the seventh annual Spring Slam.

Although the car show is geared toward mini-truck culture, it often features other vehicles. The event starts at 9 a.m.

Both tracks will also be busy with Rockingham Speedway hosting the Zerbini Family Circus through Saturday and Rockingham Dragway hosting the ManCup Rumble at the Rock.
