1. Head to Cloverdale this weekend for what always promises to “bee” a good time. (Sorry about that – we can actually hear the groaning from here). The always popular Honeybee Festival is a two-day annual event running Saturday and Sunday at the Honeybee Centre, Fraser Highway and 176th Street, Surrey. “As much fun as beekeeping and tours are, sometimes we like to let loose by inviting the community to swing by our hive for some free family fun.” Visit Honeybeecentre.com.

2. Put on some overalls and a straw hat, pack a picnic and a lawn chair, and join music lovers on the Surrey Museum lawn for a family-friendly evening of crazy fun and historic music. Music at the Museum: Jug Band Jamboree is set for July 20 at Surrey Museum. The Genuine Jug Band offers a narrated musical tour of songs and stories from the late 1800s to 1940 that the whole family will love. All ages, by donation, at 17710 56A Ave. from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. For more information, call 604-592-6956.
