Our cover story this week is all about the Humane Society for Greater Savannah's annual Doggie Carnival on May 7 at Forsyth Park. Along with the doggie derby, agility courses and lots of other fun for the pups, those of us on two legs can enjoy food and beer trucks, with all proceeds going to HSGS. Read the full story and see more photos here.

Another fun day awaits with the 41st annual Savannah Scottish Games, set for May 6 at Bethesda Academy. Along with the traditional athletic competitions, there will also be highland dancing, pipe and drum bands, a taste of Scottish food and more. Get the details here

The Tybee Wine Festival is back, with events across the island from May 4-6. Along with samples of wine and bites, you'll have two chances to catch vocal group Poperazzi, offering everything from Pavarotti to Sinatra. Proceeds benefit the historic Tybee Post Theater. Full schedule here

On Saturday, grab your fairy wings and head to Oatland Island Wildlife Center for one of the year's most adorable events, the Fairy & Gnome Festival. Admission and activity fees go toward medicine, food and other needs for the animals in Oatland's care. Read more here

Southern soul sensations St. Paul & The Broken Bones will return to Savannah for the first time since their 2014 Stopover concert. This time, they'll take on the Lucas Theatre on May 6. Guitarist Jesse Phillips says, "I have a feeling Savannah will not be too difficult to convince to get up and dance." Read the full interview here.
