Festivals, automobile shows -- even a free movie -- are all part of the "things to do" this weekend in Greeneville and Greene County.
The 20th annual Baileyton Celebration and the second annual "Buggin' For a Cure" All-VW Car Show and Swap Meet are both continuing today and Sunday.
Two additional car shows are also planned for today.
JAGUAR CAR SHOW
The Smoky Mountain Jaguar Club will host the 2013 Concours d'Elegance today on West Depot Street in downtown Greeneville.
A variety of Jaguar automobiles will be on display beginning at 9 a.m. Judging is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m.
Vote for your favorite Jag and help support the American Cancer Society.
Admission is free.

This evening, the 7th annual Food City Classic Car Show will be held at the Food City store on the Asheville Highway (Tenn. Rt. 70) from 4 to 8 p.m.
The event will feature music by the Ridge Runners Car Club, plus food, games and a cake walk.

'BUGGIN' FOR A CURE'
More than 50 craft and business vendors, at least 10 local food vendors, and hundreds of vehicles from multiple states are expected at this year's "Buggin' For A Cure" at the Greene County Fairgrounds this weekend.
The event is hosted by the Northeast Tennessee Volkswagen Association, the Tourism Department of the Greene County Partnership, and the Greene County Fair Association.
