What would a weekend in the summertime be without a festival in a park? We may never know. For the next three days it is Woodbury's turn to entertain the suburbanites and those passing through. Featured are carnival rides and games, food from local businesses, and live music from local acts. Quirkier things to do and gawk at include a Lego car race for kids, a hula-hoop contest, and a yo-yo workshop. Enjoy the fireworks Saturday night at dusk, or clap your hands to the parade on Sunday at 1 p.m. For a complete schedule and info on additional locations check www.woodburydays.com.
