Still two weeks til [public] school starts, but we’ve entered the back-to-school events slump. Opera In the Park will be performed by Virginia Opera at Dogwood Dell, Movie in the Park: Alexander will be shown at Bryan Park, learn about volunteer opportunities at Volunteer RVA at West Broad Village, Ashland’s Bluemont Concert series ($5) wraps up, and Stony Point Fashion Park has Summer Sounds concerts. Bonus Monday event: Henrico Concert Band plus a showing of Up at Deep Run Park.
ALSO: if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been working on adding more “bargain” events to the calendar so that you can know about them even when I don’t get to doing full posts (they are the ones in green). For instance, RVA Sandwich Week is going on now with $5 sandwich specials at restaurants around town, corn dogs are $.50 at Sonic tomorrow, and Fancy Pants kids consignment sale is at the Children’s Museum Central tomorrow!
