If the events last a few hours on several repeating days. Set the event up for the first day for the hours it happens, then make the event repeat using the 'repeat' option in the event edit.
Hope that helps.

Thank you, but this does not seem to work for me. Reason: all of the choices are based on frequency -- every day/week/month/year -- instead of on duration -- 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months, &c.
My present way around this is to copy-and-paste, but that does not really make the heart beat faster...

If you have an event that only happens for as few hours every day and happens ver several days it is a repeating event. You can set a repeating event to end after a certain number of times or on a date.
If you can be more concrete about what you are wanting to acheve it may help.
