This week’s cover story highlights plenty of options for this weekend’s Fourth of July celebration, but we wanted to highlight one of our favorites in The Dish: Crescent Hill’s Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Art Fair and Music Festival.

The two-day event begins at 10 a.m. Sunday, July 3, at The Peterson-Dumesnil House, 301 South Peterson Ave., and ends with a fireworks show at 10 p.m. on Monday, July 4.

Festivities include live music, a food court, plenty of kids activities, including a corn hole obstacle course, a cake wheel, a pet show, an antique car parade, a silent auction and a 5K Fun Run on Monday morning.

Free parking is available at designated parking lots at the Southern Baptist Seminary.

A ‘Reel’ Good Cause

Dr. Anna Perry and Dr. Martin Segal of Advanced Dental Care will sponsor a fly-fishing school for women from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 9, at 8305 Cedar Creek Road. The class – taught entirely by female instructors – will include lessons on fly-fishing, fly selection and casting and catch instructions. Equipment and box lunches will be provided.

The cost is $125 and limited to the first 24 women who apply. All proceeds go to Casting for Recovery, a nonprofit organization that offers fly-fishing retreats for women who have or have had breast cancer.
