This weekend is the final weekend of Heritage Days, and the schedule is packed with events.
Tonight the kids can bounce and play and run around at Kids' Night on the Common. Tomorrow Essex Street and its will be lined with arts, crafts, jewelry, soaps, toys, and food as the annual Essex Street Fair returns.
At 3:30 on Saturday and Sunday the annual Improv on the Bricks will take to Derby Square. I need to laugh-til-I-cry, so I'll probably check that one out. Right next door, Caffe Graziani will be celebrating their 20th Anniversary with a grand Festa Italiano from 2:30-4:30 PM. Check out the Spaghetti Eating Contest at 3:30 PM.
And there's a Bluegrass Jam at Gulu Gulu at 2:30 PM on Saturday, Family Activities at the PEM all weekend, and a Pet Fair and Show on the Common on Sunday.
And that's just the special stuff - the extra programming, in addition to the museums, attractions, tours, shopping, dining, live music and theater that is always happening in Salem.
