Weekend events with METRO: June 7-9


After several days of thunderstorms, get the family out of the house and enjoy some outdoor activities. The weekend promises to be mostly sunny. We've got a soul music concert for you, or an iconic TV show turned into a play featuring a spooky family. Or inspire the kids by taking them to see talented students dance everything from hip hop to ballet.

Wherever you go this weekend, consider taking METRO. The events listed below are within blocks of a bus stop or rail station. Use our METRO TRIP app to find schedules and routes. Then sit back, relax and leave the driving to us.
