This week has blown by us (or so it seems that way) and now the weekend is finally here. Clearly, it’s time to celebrate. What’s on your agenda?

The National Weather Service predicts sunny, warm weather. So whatever you have planned, it’s probably wise to do it outdoors. Go to a park! Open your window! Wear sunglasses!

Here’s what else you need to know to make the most of your weekend:

  • Here’s how to help spruce up the Kalorama Triangle Saturday.
  • The Columbia Heights Farmers Market returns to 14th St. and Park Rd. NW Saturday.
  • The Emancipation Day parade kicks off at 441 4th St. NW Saturday at 1 p.m. “The day will end with a concert and fireworks display at Freedom Plaza. . . . Bring your families – there will be a truck touch in front of the Wilson Building and food trucks on the north side of Freedom Plaza,” according to the mayor’s office.
  • Reggae music! At Colony Club (3118 Georgia Ave. NW) on Saturday at 8 p.m.
