Baltimore is under a Code Red Extreme Heat Alert for Thursday through Sunday, so several outdoor events have been canceled this weekend. Be sure to stay cool, limit your time outdoors, and look after yourselves and your neighbors.
There will be some indoor or evening events that should bring some relief from the heat. It’s looking to be quite a soulful weekend for Charm City, from musical performances to AVAM’s screening of Disney’s animated movie “Soul,” which is all about jazz and following your passions.
