DIYpsi Indie Art Fair
DIYpsi is a two-day handmade art fair for the best indie artists in the area. Also expect local food and craft beer. (YUM.) Because this is art you can’t find at Pier-1, you’ll definitely feel good about buying it. Oh, and check out downtown while you’re at it. – JB

Color Vibe 5K
You might know Holi, the epic color festival in India each spring. (There were a ton of autoplay Facebook videos.) This is kind of like that (i.e. people throwing color dye followed by a festive dance party) except it’s also a 5k race. Just remember to stretch out beforehand. Register now. -SF
