>Alabama Events August 2008

>OK , Blogger finally released my blog from being tagged as “spam,” a ridiculous accusation that affected thousands. I hope they have chastized their spambots and there is not a repeat.

Because we often don’t learn of events until too late to plan or go, here is an incomplete list of events happening around the state. Many of these came from Alabama Journey, a publication of AAA of Alabama. If you know of other events for August, let me know and I will add them. I am not responsible for any errors, omissions, cancelations or changes. Check with the web site or phone number to confirm. Enjoy Alabama.
