Things to do this weekend beyond the Clark County Fair

These four events offer fairgrounds diversions if needed.

The Clark County Fair is probably on everyone’s agenda this weekend, but if you’re looking for something else, here are four things to do away from the fairgrounds.

COhatch grand re-opening

The Springfield COhatch hosts its grand re-opening Saturday night after a one-year delay due to the pandemic.

The event, from 4 to 7 p.m. at 101 S Fountain Ave in Springfield, has a 1980s theme. Attendees are encouraged to wear ’80s attire.

There will be live music, restaurant specials and games. COhatch vendors and restaurants will be participating, including the Painted Pepper, the Market Bar, Myers Burgers & Wings.
