The festival kicks off with a 5K run and will include food vendors, arts and crafts, kids activities, and live music. Festival admission is free, but contest entry fees vary. For more information, go to www.manorchamberofcommerce.com/chipfest. Saturday, May 26, 10am-6pm.

Help the folks at Fall Creek Vineyards (325/379-5361, www.fcv.com) raise money to fund the relocation of the Lake Buchanan Chamber of Commerce by attending their inaugural Food & Wine May Fest at the beautiful vineyard on the banks of Lake Buchanan. Enjoy an afternoon on the mist-cooled patio while browsing the various arts-and-crafts booths, sipping Fall Creek's award-winning wines, and noshing on area barbecue, fruit, and cheese. Admission is free. Saturday, May 26, 11am-5pm.
