There are plenty of reasons to celebrate this weekend.

The Columbia Pike Blues Festival is back. For many, it’s a three-day weekend for the Juneteenth federal holiday, and Sunday marks Father’s Day.

When making plans, keep in mind there will be road closures for a few events. The Blues Festival and the Zero Prostate Cancer 5k Run/Walk will shut down several roads in the county on Saturday.

That’s in addition to county facility closures for Juneteenth on Sunday and Monday.
