Unfortunately, the Fox Point Folk Fest (see below) on Saturday afternoon 15 July will be on the same afternoon as the second day of Wayland Square’s sidewalk sale (July 14-15). 
Don’t forget Federal Hill’s first Summer Festival this weekend, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. today (Friday 23 June), tomorrow and Sunday. Atwells Avenue will be closed (and RIPTA buses thereby diverted) basically all day every day from Dean to Sutton Streets. 
Those interested in the special election to succeed recalled City Councillor Kevin Jackson (Ward 3: Summit and Mt Hope plus parts of N. Main & the Boulevard) should remember the candidates’ debate next Tuesday the 27th, moderated by Ted Nesi of WPRI. It will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Martin Luther King School, 35 Camp Street, midway between Hope, North Main, Doyle and Olney.Have a good weekend (and happy Eid to those observing Ramadan),
Dave
