A night at the museum

This free event will include a look back on the changes made over the last year in our city through all forms of artistic expression.

Downtown Greensboro is putting the art in partk – the t is silent. On Friday, June 4th, from 6-9 p.m. kick off First Friday Art Park at Center City Park, where hands-on projects and demos abound. We're on the prowl for a Patrick Swayze type to help us recreate that scene in Ghost. You know the one.

From 7-10 p.m., enjoy live Southern rock by WristBand. Makers gonna make, make, make and we're just gonna drank, drank, drank.
Why ya gotta be so crood
We're not sure why you'd take two of the best-looking people in Hollywood – hello, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds – and hide them behind animated cave people, but we're just here for the food trucks. Kick off summer at Oak Ridge's free Community Movie Night – showing The Croods: A New Age – this Friday, June 4, from 6:30-10 p.m. Reservations required.
More vintage flare than your jeans
If you're headed in the direction of the NC Zoo this Saturday, grab a tote and get ex-cidered! Take a little detour into the charming town of Ramseur for Vivian & Dot's Vintage Outdoor Market at Millstone Creek Orchard. The cider and donuts alone will keep us coming back faster than a 90s trend. Have you seen our velvet scrunchie?
Daisy me rollin'
On Saturday, June 5, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., hit up one of our favorite Lexington
haunted houses haunts, the Holt House, for their Summer Market. Vendors, fresh bouquets at the flower cart, concessions and free tours of the historic abode make for a bloomin' good time. You can even put the flow in flowers by arriving early for yoga on the lawn.
No pooper scooper necessary
They don't bark, bite or shed, and won't destroy your favorite Chucks. They're Puppies in the Park! Distractions, a paint-your-own pottery studio in High Point, will be hiding 60 ready-to-paint puppies (for kids 6-12) in 3 different parks around High Point and 1 in Greensboro. Find a puppy and bring it in to paint for free. This event is adorable!
Leaving a paper tail
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring! But first, let's make said kite. On Sunday, June 6, from 2-4 p.m., children in grades 1-6 (accompanied by an adult) are invited to a creative paper kite-making outdoor workshop at Reynolda House, after which they'll fly them in a meadow. This high is Poppins-approved!
Takin' it to the street
The International Civil Rights Center & Museum kicks off their Street Talk program on Saturday, June 5, from 6-8 p.m. All are invited to Elm St. for straight talk regarding open-ended topics relevant to our community and beyond. Be the change you want to see.
Shut up and drive-in
On Saturday, June 5, cruise that Cadillac to The Drive at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds for free movie night with the fam. Choose from The Dark Knight Rises or The Lego Movie. Just don't fall to pieces making your selection because, no matter what, everything is awesome!
