Though we’ll have a continuing chance of showers and thunderstorms this weekend, it’s still going to be packed with things to do!

The Freedom Run 10K kicks off Greensboro’s Fun Fourth celebration!  It’s a 6.2 mile course through rolling hills of some of the prettiest parts of downtown and old Irving Park.  The humidity will be high, but rain chances look rather low for the 8 am start.  Good luck to all the runners and walkers!


Safe Haven Equine Rescue and Ruff Love Dog Rescue is having an Ice Cream Social from 11 am to 3 pm on Saturday, and you’re invited!  Safe Haven Farm, located at 245 Cedar Ridge Lane in High Point is the gathering spot.  You can bring your dog (on a leash) to enjoy the day — and some doggie ice cream! — plus there will be free music and games!  Both rescues will have animals (horses and dogs!) there for affection and fun, so this is a superb event for the whole family.  Visit or for more information.  The rain date is Sunday, June 30th.

Feel free to post your weekend event below!
