1.The Wharf at the southwest waterfront has been hosting a couple of free, family-friendly series this summer: Concerts on Wednesdays, movies on Thursdays. This week pop/rock band Hijynx will be performing, and Ratatouille will be shown on the big outdoor screen — be sure to register in advance for the film! Plan to grab a bite to enjoy with (or before) the entertainment — our easy faves are Lupo Marino, Falafel Inc., and Grazie Grazie, and there are a bunch of other places there offering tasty fare. (PS: The Wharf is also a fun daytime destination — more about it here.)
2. Step Afrika! is kicking off their 2021-2022 season with a three-day celebration at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, which takes place outdoors this summer, this Thursday – Saturday, August 12-15. Join in the celebration and enjoy their lively perscussive performances. Access is first-come, first-served — no tickets or check-in required — and may be restricted due to capacity.
