If a year of quarantine left you pining for live tunes, the second annual Quarterfest Crawl will be music to your ears. The socially distanced street festival promises food and drink specials from area restaurants (from pork belly skewers and margaritas to mini milkshakes), giant-size games, a neighborhood-wide scavenger hunt sponsored by Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, and more than 12 music and dance performances spread out in various locations throughout the day.
