4. You've played Spin the Bottle, but now here's your chance to spin the "Wheel of Fortune."

From 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, visit the Wheelmobile at the Fairgrounds in Hamburg. Play Vanna, and audition for a spot on the popular broadcast television show!

Free at the Fairgrounds, 5600 McKinley Parkway.
