Summer Solstice
Forest Theater—Bring your kids to the Forest Theater tonight for a lesson in heliolatry. Today marks the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. In celebration, Ackland Art Museum and the N.C. Botanical Garden present an evening with storyteller Faye Stanley, whose talent for forging connections between cultures aligns with the current Ackland exhibit In and Around the Garden: Perspectives in East and West. Costumes that appreciate the sun and/or gardens are highly encouraged. The show is free and open to the public and begins at 7 p.m., rain or shine. For more info, visit or call 966-5736. —Megan Stein

Lake Benson Park—One of the Triangle's most beloved Latin bands, Carnavalito, arrives at one of its favorite venues: Garner's Lake Benson Park. The seven-piece combo's Latin jazz boasts depth and a stylistic cross-section, including salsa, son montuno, merengue, cumbia and cha cha cha. Perfect for dancing or just chilling: The longer the sets, the better the flavor, so grab a two-hour slice of fire and mellow. Presented as part of PineCone's Family Series. The 6 p.m. show is free. See —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
