Washed Up 

Sunday, July 22

Here ye! Here ye! For those who enjoy pushing their bodies capabilities to new limits, who relish in the afterglow of sore forearms, throbbing biceps, and aching backs and shoulders, this is the event you've been waiting for. Beginning in North Carolina at the Holiday Inn with a Team Leaders meeting, the Junior Wildwater World Championship is a dueling of canoes and kayaks driven by unforgiving currents and the ambitious athletes who love them. The activities will take place in the National Wildwater Center's Wildnerness Channel, including training sessions, group races, and individual sprints. Participating federations include the Russians, the French, Canadians, Germans, and many more (Go USA!). It's the first time this event has made it to the United States, so anticipation runneth over. Volunteers are invited and spectators are expected. Who knows? Perhaps the rush of excitement is contagious and you'll be inspired to push your own body's limits of physical exertion ... Advil sold separately. 4:30 p.m. Holiday Inn, 230 N. College St.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
