THAT SUMMER FEELING: Virginia-Highland Summerfest kicks off on June 9
Round up the kids and drag your partner off the couch, ’cause Virginia-Highland Summerfest is back for its 35th year! Organizers are going all out featuring hundreds of painters, sculptors, and jewelers from across the Southeast, and a 5K Road Race featuring more than 1,500 runners (with a “Tot Trot” to match so the kids can waddle their way to the finish line too). Funk powerhouse Kung Fu and singer-songwriter Alex Guthrie are taking over the main stage, and brews from Red Hare and Goose Island will quench your summer thirst. Support your neighbors, local artists, and restaurants, and ring in the summer on a good note. Plus, it’s free. So what’s your excuse? Free. 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Sat., June 9; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sun., June 10.Virginia Ave. at North Highland Ave. www.vahi.org/summerfest
