NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — While we might be getting some rain here and there this weekend, the warm weather will be sticking around, making it a great time to check out some activities both indoors and outdoors in middle Tennessee.

Musicians Corner - Free Concert Series

This annual concert series is free and open to the public. Held in Centennial Park, Musician's Corner offers live music, multiple food vendors, local artisans, an outdoor pub, and even a kids' area.

Additionally, the event is dog-friendly and occurs both on Fridays from 6p.m.-9p.m. and Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

This is a favorite stop for locals throughout the spring and summer seasons as they soak in the warm weather in the park in the middle of Nashville's beautiful cityscape.

You can see this weekend's full lineup here.

Tour de Nash

The 15th annual Tour de Nash is being held this Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This is Nashville's longest suburban bike ride with the Grand Tour route totaling 45 miles.

Tour de Nash is also offering a Family Bike Parade for the first time this year in which young riders will be able to join along in the fun...but for a much shorter route.

The ride begins and ends at Public Square Park.
