If you're not part of the record-setting pack of travelers leaving the area this weekend, there are still plenty of ways to mark the unofficial start of summer.

  • Might we suggest taking advantage of the glorious forecast with some outdoor activities?

⚾ The Nashville Sounds are in town this weekend for a series of home games against the Iowa Cubs.

ğŸŽ¤ Musicians Corner, a free outdoor concert series, launched earlier this month. This weekend's schedule includes shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

  • Grammy-nominated artist Amythyst Kiah will take the stage Saturday afternoon.

🌠 A free star-gazing party is scheduled Saturday evening at the Cornelia Fort Trailhead in Shelby Bottoms. Organizers will set up telescopes.

🏃 The 23rd annual Memorial Day Dash 5K, hosted by the Nashville City Cemetery Association and the Metro Historical Commission, starts at 7:30am Monday. The course runs through Fort Negley Historic Park.

  • Registration is $40, and prizes are awarded for the best patriotic costumes.
