Father’s Day Weekend On the Lawn, Under the Stars

By Susan Larson

Friday the 13th, Flag Day and Father’s Day are rolled into one weekend this year, which by my estimation means great luck for lots of fun.

After a damp Friday — the National Weather Service said there is a 50 to 60 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms — Saturday and Sunday are predicted to be beautiful.  Sunny days with highs in the mid-80s will transition to moonlit nights in the low 60s.

So what will you do this weekend?  Here’s a selection of events from which to choose.  Click the hyper-links for more details.
