A look at what’s going on this weekend in and around Winona:
Third annual Free Music Winona
Broken World Records on East Third Street is hosting its third year of Free Music Winona, Minnesota, a chance to see several local and regional artists without needing a ticket, wristband or cover charge.
The event, which started Thursday night, will take place 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday and 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday, all at Broken World Records. Groups including Unity the Band, Left Lane Cruiser, the Heaping Spoonfuls and Deathless Dogs will play.
In addition to donation boxes in several locations, FMWM will donate 5% of sales to a local charity that will be decided by a poll on the event’s Facebook page.
Since the shows are free, event organizers ask that event-goers buy a drink (non-alcoholic drinks will be available) to show support.
