Navigator Weekender: The 13 Best Things To Do This Weekend Including A Dino Safari, Pop-Up Markets, And A Memorial Day Parade

After more than a year, we’re officially bringing back the Columbus Navigator Weekender.

With vaccinations on the rise and COVID-19 cases in Ohio declining, we thought Memorial Day weekend would be the perfect time to bring back one of our favorite weekly postings. We love connecting our readers to fun events around the city and we’re so excited that we can start to get back to normal.

Here’s what is going on around town this weekend. Get out there and have some fun, Columbus.
