Here's a roundup of events — holiday and otherwise — to keep you busy this Fourth of July weekend.
First Friday Art Walk
The monthly stroll through The Galleries at Sunset Center, 3701 Plains Blvd., will feature at least two new show openings.
The gallery walk, which runs from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, is free.
Taste the Rainbow: A Celebration of Pride
A lineup of Amarillo burlesque performers will commemorate LGBT Pride with a little bump and grind at a Saturday show at R&R Bar, 701 S. Georgia St.
"Taste the Rainbow: A Celebration of Pride" opens at 10 p.m. Saturday in the bar's Back Room entertainment venue. Cover is $10 for ages 21 and older.
"Been to a Back Room show? Then you know we get wild! Never been? Don't worry, we'll take it easy on you!" promised performer and owner Ronnie Lloyd Nanos in a Facebook post.
Performers — who'll offer songs, dances and monologues — also will include Belladonna Muse, Medusa Oblongata, Jostlynn Plums, the Mad Hattress, Tallulah Strange, Clifford and Miss Kat.
