Are you ready to battle the Beast? Erie’s biggest obstacle course returns to Presque Isle State Park Saturday, Sept. 12, with more than 1,200 entrants expected to take on Beast on the Bay’s courses.

The Barber National Institute started Beast on the Bay back in 2013, providing Erie with a challenging obstacle course while raising funds to support work with children and adults with disabilities. For people looking for a challenge, you can sign up for the Beast’s 10-mile course or the 1.2-mile adapted course for individuals with physical or developmental disabilities. Even if you don’t want to take on the Beast, you can still watch contestants fight through obstacles in designated cheer zones. Head online to register today and take on the Beast for yourself. – Alex Bieler

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Grate every road in downtown Erie all at once.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!

If De Palmas trip down memory lane whets your appetite, come back to the museum for one of his most underrated movies a week later.
