What are you doing this weekend? May 1-4

Celebrating Snellville, a baseball blast from the past, and Derby Day

Atlantans should be breaking out the bourbon for two reasons this weekend: One, It’s finally not supposed to rain and two, the Kentucky Derby, of course. (See below for places to watch the race.) Enjoy the sunshine.

Snellville Days
The little town on the east side (slogan: “Snellville, where everybody is proud to be somebody”) celebrates with arts, crafts, a car show, and more. Saturday and Sunday. snellvilledays.com

Woofstock
Pack up your pup and head out to this Suwanee celebration of all things canine, including adoptable pets, music, food trucks, a pet/owner look alike contest, and the always entertaining disc catching and dock diving dogs. Saturday, noon. star94.com

Braves v. Giants and Kool & the Gang
Celebrate good times with the funky disco-era stars, who play a post-game show after Atlanta takes on San Francisco. The game is part of Heritage Weekend, which honors the Civil Rights Movement. Saturday, 7:10 p.m. braves.com

Druid Hills Tour of Homes & Gardens
If you enjoyed perusing the historic homes during last week’s party in Inman Park, explore these seven abodes, which most of which were built during the 1920s . Callenwolde Arts Center, a stop on the tour, will also offer an art and pottery sale. Friday through Sunday. druidhillstour.org

Derby Day 2014
400 miles south from Churchill Downs, the bourbon is still flowing. Here are a few places to watch the Run for the Roses:

The Shepherd Center Derby Day bash at Chastain Horse Park hosts multiple auctions, food and drink, music, and games. Saturday, 2 p.m. derbyday.com

Two of Ford Fry’s eateries, The Optimist and JCT Kitchen & Bar, are serving up mint juleps and other special Derby-themed bourbon drinks, along with small plates. Saturday, 4 p.m. facebook.com/theoptimistATL and facebook.com/jctkitchen

Southern Art and Bourbon Bar in Buckhead will also offer mint juleps and Southern fare during its Peachtree Downs party, which features live bluegrass. Saturday, 3 p.m. southernart.com
