This weekend is a big one for concerts all around the country as A-listers head out to entertain during the holiday weekend. There are still tickets available for Beyonce, who christens the stage at the brand new Ovation Hall at Atlantic City’s newest resort, Revel. New Edition is still on tour, which means AC will be buzzing as they and Beyonce are there at the same time on Sunday night. Folks down South can catch Keith Sweat, K-Ci and Jo Jo and SWV in the Fresh Music Festival. If you don’t want to do a concert, you’ll probably be outside near a barbeque, but you can check below for any alternate ideas for the holiday weekend. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.
