That marvelous time of brides, dads and grads is here again.

This first weekend of June will find many of us attending a graduation or wedding, or maybe a shopping excursion with the kids to select that perfect gift for dear old dad.

Perhaps you're one of the lucky ones who doesn't have anything planned for this weekend. That's a sure sign that summer is here.

Here's a few local events scheduled this weekend.

Succulent, ripe berries served with ice cream and cake, chicken, crab cakes, hot dogs, salads, beverages, baked goods and homemade candies will be sold.

For the family, the festival will feature carnival games, prizes, pony rides, and live entertainment by the Pasadena Kadettes, George Fox Dancers and the Anne Arundel Twirlers.


Lake Shore Elementary will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a community picnic from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday on the school's front lawn.
