No plans for the weekend? Here’s what’s happening on the family fun front.
Public pools across the region are now open. Our public pool database has the details. Just know that to reserve your spot, you will need to pre-register at many of the pools this summer.
We have baseball …

Duke Gardens has reopened to the public, but with limited capacity. It is open on weekends, but you might want to get there early to avoid a crowd (or go on a weekday if you can swing it).
Marbles Kids Museum has launched a month of activities that celebrate the outdoors. Visitors can “camp and kayak” in the Hit the Trail exhibit, stop by a ranger station in River Playway and learn about animals in the wild. The museum’s IMAX theater also will debut the new IMAX 3D documentary Into the Wild. Masks are required at Marbles. So are pre-booked admission tickets.
The Holly Springs Farmers Market will host a petting zoo with baby chicks, ducklings, bunnies, a baby goat and lamb from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Saturday. It’s at 300 W. Ballentine St., Holly Springs.
The N.C. Symphony will start streaming one of its Young People’s Concerts on Saturday. It features The Carnival of the Animals by French composer Camille Saint-Saens.
