Town Day in downtown Davidson Saturday felt a lot like the Town Days of old, with perhaps a few features you wouldn’t have found in festivals past.
There was plenty of the familiar. Boy Scout Troop 58′s rope bridge challenge another cohort of youngsters. Davidson Presbyterian Church served lunch as always from its massive portable grill. There were games – from ring toss to corn hole – and the “Cake Walk,” a musical contest with cakes and cupcakes for prizes. Read the full story

Thursday’s full moon over the Lake Norman area was big and bright. But on the other side of the world, earthlings saw a brief (27-minute) partial eclipse, and a pink moon.
How short was it? Twenty-seven minutes. It wasn’t visible here. (See more at “Earthsky.org”)

Rape in bloom off Davidson-Concord and June Washam roads. (PK Donson photo)
We featured this beautiful field of yellow rape in bloom a couple of weeks ago as our photo of the day. Since then, so many readers have sent notes or photos and suggesting we feature it (we already did!) that we’re bringing it back. Today we’re happy to offer another view from Davidson photographer P.K. Donson.
By the way, Donson’s photos will be featured during May in an exhibit in the atrium gallery of Davidson Town Hall, 216 S. Main St. A reception is planned Friday, May 17, from 7-9pm. Hope you can stop by.

PHOTOS OF THE DAY
We’re looking for photos that capture the people and places that make Cornelius what it is. It could be a pretty picture from an event, a youth sports team photo, a pet, a quirky wildlife photo or an oddity. Send ‘em to us (email@example.com) and we’ll consider them for publication.
Requirements: Send us whatever you have – color or black-and-white JPGs preferred. If you have the ability to do so, we ask that you resize photos to not more than 600 pixels wide. That box on the front page of the site is exactly 595 pixels by 270 pixels, if you’re able to crop yourself. But you needn’t be limited to that size. Unlike our previous banners, with Photo of the Day, we can take any shape.
Wondering if you have something worthy? Call (704-896-0569) or email at the address above. And thanks for joining us!
