It's a busy weekend in Broadneck. Here are all the big events listed in one place.

There's so much going on this weekend in and around Broadneck, I've put it all in one place so no one misses out on the great events.

I'll be in and out of these this weekend, taking pictures to put on the site. Let's just hope rain doesn't spoil all the fun.

What: When: Noon Saturday

Fly a Kite at Broadneck Park on Saturday. The first-ever Kite Festival starts at noon at Broadneck Park. Bring your own kite, or buy one for $5 at the park. There will also be a picnic lunch.

The Kite Festival will double as a chance for the , a community group started by McGuirk-Allison, to spread the word about their effort to raise funds to restore the park's playground.

What: Scouting for Food

Where: Throughout Broadneck

The Boy Scouts of America will be picking up bags for the Scouting for Food service project on Saturday. Bags were distributed throughout the past few weeks and filled by volunteers with essential goods such as soup, tuna, fruit and vegetables. The foods will be donated to local food pantries, food banks and feeding programs.

Donated food should be put out near the mailbox or doorstep early Saturday, typically by 8 a.m.
