Curbside Press squeezed the lemons of news to bring you fresh, sweet weekend roundup lemonade. The smoke has begun to clear from many communities as the rain has started, so the air is finally safe enough (besides the pandemic that is still raging) to attend outdoor events again.
This weekend roundup is filled to the brim with incredible events, including the best drive-in double feature probably ever. We’ve got goat yoga (you read that right), tea leaf reading lessons, a juggling festival, local music and more!
