If you're looking for something to do in Montgomery, you're in luck. And get this: Saturday night is looking particularly epic. Let's run through what's happening in the capital of dreams in this week's rundown!

Dragon Boat Race and Festival

The Dragon Boat Race and Festival is one of the most fun things to do in Montgomery.
