Another all-ages event on tap for this weekend, the Sing-A-Long Sound of Music at Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre tonight. If you aren't familiar with these sing-a-long events, the movie will be screened with subtitles so everyone can join in. There will also be a fancy-dress competition. Everyone in costume will be invited on stage to show off their tailoring skills. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 5 to 12. All lawn seating is general admission. Pack a lawn chair and head on out there.

Glenwood South in Raleigh is holding a Busking Street Festival on Saturday from noon until 8 p.m. Buskers may sing, play an acoustic musical instrument, dance, mime, juggle, sketch, paint, or perform other appropriate theatrical art. The panel of judges will decide winners at the end of the night. Check WRAL’s Out & About this weekend for photos from the festival!
