Haw River Festival 

When: Sat., May 7 2016

SATURDAY, MAY 7 HAW RIVER FESTIVAL

Saturdays in Saxapahaw, one of the Triangle's most treasured annual series, gets off to a cracking start with a festival that stretches through the late afternoon. Durham's Luis Del Rio headlines with gently acoustic bilingual tunes. The Village Band of Chapel Hill opens ahead of ZamBamBooGee, which offers loose, boogie-friendly jams. Local favorite Diali Cissokho then takes the stage with the energetic Kaira Ba, a band that slings emphatic Senegalese tunes with a rock backbone. The day's festivities also include a puppet parade, food trucks, kayak rides for children, and a silent auction. While this family-friendly affair is free, consider opening your wallet wide, as all donations support the Haw River Assembly, which protects the river that rolls through Saxapahaw. Free music, open-ended fun, environmental conservation—what's not to like? —Allison Hussey
