Yankovic Day Concert, 7-9 PM, Downtown Performance Green. Cost: Free
I used to think, “there’s a holiday for Weird Al Yankovic? Really?” But that’s not it at all. Yankovic Day celebrates the music of the late Frankie Yankovic and the tradition of polka music. Roll out the barrel and polka your way downtown for this free show on Friday night.

Many area pools will have their official summer opening this weekend. Long lines will form at Goodberries in the cool of evening.
Over at USA Baseball here in Cary, The NCAA Division II Baseball Championship kicks off during the day.
And in the evening, the NC Symphony returns to their summer home at Both Amphitheatre in Cary for their first program of the season.

Sunday is up for grabs at our house. We might go strawberry picking. We might get breakfast at Briggs, or NYBD or Perkins, all our favorite places.
Sunday night, the Triangle Wind Ensemble has a show at Booth Amphitheater with “a salute to American composers Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein, along with patriotic works suitable to the Memorial Day Weekend.”
