There are plenty of events this weekend to celebrate our transit into June. Dog owners sit up: the Animal Rescue League’s “Paws in the Park” festival is happening on Saturday in Brewster, and there are fun -- and some unusual -- activities for dogs and their owners, including a doggie kissing booth and caricatures.  Also on Saturday, Heritage Museums & Gardens celebrates a Big Bugs Bash, with giant insect sculpture, insect tasting (gulp!), and more. On Sunday, Taylor-Bray farm celebrates a different animal: it's all about sheep at the 13th annual Sheep Festival in Yarmouthport (don't bring your dog to this one). Also on Sunday, a restaurant in Provincetown is helping to celebrate the centennial of the town's art museum with a special kind of event - a plein air painting extravaganza.

Steve Junker and Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll discuss upcoming events every Thursday on All Things Considered.  Audio of this week's conversation is posted below - give it a listen.
