The weekend is almost here, but it’s raining. You take the good with the bad, right? Hope you’ve managed to stay dry so far. What do you have planned? Hopefully something fun.

The National Weather Service predicts wet weather tonight and possibly tomorrow, with warm weather and maybe even a little sun on Saturday. And if you’re looking to fire up the grill, Sunday is expected to be sunny with a high near 70.

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

  • You’ll be able to celebrate Earth Day a day late on Saturday with community cleanups and a puppet show in Stead Park.
  • Dacha will tap a special wooden barrel of Radeberger zwickle Saturday.
  • Glen’s Garden Market will celebrate its third birthday with a live band and vendors at its Dupont and Shaw locations this weekend.
  • Dupont Circle will fill with book lovers as part of World Book Day Saturday.
  • D.C. Councilmembers Brandon Todd and Vincent Orange and at-large candidates Robert White and David Garber will meet with locals and members from the D.C. Latino Caucus at El Tamarindo in Adams Morgan on Saturday.
  • Students from public and charter schools across the District will set up a free lemonade stand at the Columbia Heights Metro Station on Satrday from noon to 2 p.m. as part of Lemonade Day D.C., a George Washington University program to teach entrepreneurship to local kids.
  • Songbyrd Music House and Record Cafe will remember Prince with several events this weekend.
  • The oldest barbershop in Shaw is getting a makeover this weekend.
  • Metro’s track work is back!
  • National Parks Day is Sunday. Locals who head to Meridian Hill Park can meet the current U.S. Surgeon General and local doctors while taking advantage of free health screenings and participating in free activities.
