There are especially plenty of events for music lovers like a Melanie Martinez concert, free festival in the Waverly area, or even a planetarium show with a ‘90s soundtrack. But if you’re not in the mood to tap your feet and nod your head, check out a number of other options including a comedy set and art exhibit.
