West 18th Street Fashion Show and other weekend outings



The West 18th Street Fashion Show is Saturday.
It's going to be more than big stuffy hats and bow ties when 18 talented designers get their hands on seersucker, bold colors, history books and some of the hottest bods around.

This year's West 18th Street Fashion Show celebrates a Triple Crown Summer and looks to tell powerful visual tales of all things horse racing. The show begins at 8 p.m. Saturday on West 18th Street between Wyandotte and Baltimore. Admission is free.

Big Smith is hanging it up on Saturday. The Springfield-based bluegrass band is going to go out with some tub-thumping tunes first. The well-traveled band is joined by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils and Powder Mill for a Saturday show at Crossroads KC at Grinders that starts at 7 p.m.

Saturday is also a fee-free day at National Parks. So that means the Truman Library in Independence is free for admission from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Beer and polka? Need I say more? The Sugar Creek Slavic Festival kicks off tonight at 5 p.m. The party runs until 11:30 p.m., and then it resumes from 3 to 11:30 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $3.

Behind every great meal is often a family tradition. And there's a whole host of tradition at the 51st annual Greek Festival held by St. Dionysios Greek Orthodox Church (8100 West 95th Street, Overland Park) tonight through Sunday. Fill up on souvlaki, gyro plates, spanikopita, and baklava while traditional Greek dancers take to the stage or walk through the Plaka - a re-creation of an Athenian marketplace with clothing, jewelry and ephemera for sale. The festival runs from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
