The DoSavannah staff usually narrows down the top events happening in Savannah each Friday to ten, but with so many awesome activities going on this weekend we had to include at least 15 in our list.

Feeling thrifty? The 66th Annual Junior League thrift sale is back at the civic center so hurry over to find your treasures before someone else gets them. The sale is on now through Saturday.

After your morning coffee or tea Saturday morning, head on down to Morrell Park to see nearly 100 furry four-legged athletes running in this year's wiener dog races as part of Oktoberfest on the River. This event so full of cuteness and excitement, you'd be a sad pup if you missed it.

If wiener dogs aren't your thing, but Wiener Schnitzel is, this is the weekend to get your fill. The annual Oktoberfest on River Street is here all weekend long. Don't forget your lieder hosen!

Another colorful event is coming to the city on Saturday. Start your day with a little exercise with the Savannah Color Vibe 5k run. After all, who wouldn't want colored powder thrown in their face and ears? You know you'll make it your next Facebook profile pic.

October is breast cancer awareness month and you know what that means... Picnic in the Park! Every year in October, hundreds gather on the beautiful green in Forsyth Park to enjoy comradery, live music and a chance to design a creative picnic spread. Anyone who participates in the competition will be eligible to win an array of prizes. Remember to wear pink!

If you're feeling a little country and want the opportunity to see one of the greats of country music, Loretta Lynn is coming to the Savannah Civic Center on Sunday. Tickets are still on sale.

For more details on these events and more, check out the "Fab Fifteen" calendar below. Happy weekend everyone!
