Brooklyn-born vibrophonist and composer Nikara Warren stops by Burlington City Arts' Twilight Series for two nights of infectious vibes and postmodern grooves. The granddaughter of legendary jazz pianist Kenny Barron, Warren fills the air at Burlington City Hall Park with fearlessly genre-blending bops from her debut album, NIKARA Presents Black Wall Street.

  • Annual Season Opener

Burlington's Community Sailing Center starts summer off right with its Annual Season Opener. Folks looking to ride the waves — or just soak in the sun — come down to the docks for a day of creemees, barbecue, yoga on the deck, dragon boat lessons and $5 boat rides on the lake. Plus, Dedalus Wine Shop, Market & Bar and DJ Abby Shaw keep the fun going into the evening with drinks and dance-worthy beats.

The 73rd annual St. Johnsbury Pet Parade fills the town's streets with costumed furry friends and their families. Kicking off at Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium and ending at Four Seasons Park, the parade lets animals strut their stuff while their people raise funds for Kingdom Animal Shelter. At the post-procession festivities, pooches win prizes in categories including largest, smallest and best dressed.
