+4 The XTERRA East Championship marks its 15th year in Richmond, featuring biking, swimming and trail running in a race that takes competitors in and around the James River Park System. These were not the people at the Bacon Festival.

+6 Yes, thousands of local eaters eager for pork have a weekend for the books, flocking to the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival and Richmond's first Bacon Festival. Mark your calendars now for next weekend's I Swear These Pants Used to Fit Me Fiesta.

+1 The summer vacation countdown begins, with students and parents across Richmond heading toward the last day of school on Friday, June 14. For teachers, this is also known as the Second Job Season.
