Live outdoor music isn’t the only thing that makes this time of year great. We’re also just entering festival season, also known as face-paint-and-cotton-candy-season. Do both today in Charles Village. Unfortunately, due to construction, organizers won’t be holding their annual 5K race and 1K kids’ fun run. There’s lots of other fun stuff planned, though, like live music and a walk through the neighborhood’s beautiful backyard gardens.
