HARVESTFEST
11 a.m. Kavanaugh Boulevard in Hillcrest. Free.

Well here's a delightful way to spend a Saturday: Hillcrest's HarvestFest, the annual all-day celebration of one of the most downright charming neighborhoods in the city.

The early risers and birdwatchers will get the whole thing started with the Audubon Bird Walk in Allsopp Park, starting at 7:30 a.m. The Run 4 Shelter Hillcrest 5K ($30) starts at 8 a.m., and afterward there'll be a chance for some post-run carb-loading (that's a thing, right?) with a pancake breakfast at Pulaski Heights Presbyterian Church (it's $5).

The food and retail vendors will unveil their wares at 11 a.m. all along Kavanaugh Boulevard. There will be many more activities, including a Corvette show, a cheese dip competition, a dog show, the Box Turtle Fashion Show and music from Runaway Planet, Parachute Woman, Bad Years, Cindy Woolf and Mark Bilyeu of Big Smith, Mayday by Midnight, Astromice, Kevin Kerby, Adam Faucett and Amasa Hines.
