What to do this weekend

If for some reason you're not going to the Jubliee Festival this weekend (And I think you should, because it sounds awesome), there are two other ways to get out and about in Knoxville.

1. Remember the schoolyard garden at Fulton HS that I mentioned a week or so ago? They're going to get started on Saturday at 10 a.m. Meet at the flagpole at Fulton (Broadway and Woodland) and bring any kind of gardening tools you might have (shovels, wheelbarrows, spades, hoes, whatever you've got!). They really, really want this to be a community garden, but that will only be the case if the community gets involved. Check out their Facebook page here.

2. The Knox County Library is celebrating five years of the Imagination Library with an event called the Great Cake Bake at the L&N on Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. There will be neato cakes to view, a cake-decorating contest, cakewalk and cakes and cookbooks for sale. Chef Walter will be there too doing some sort of demonstration. Tickets are $5, and proceeds benefit Imagination Library (you know, the service started by Dolly Parton that sends free books to kiddos).

Y'all have no excuse to sit around the house this weekend now!
