AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- If you're considering going out of town for the holiday weekend, maybe you should look a little closer to home to do something fun.

Starting on Friday from 12p to 5p you can go on a Gallery Crawl through downtown. It is absolutely free and you can check out 15 different galleries. Some stops include Humanitree House, New Moon Cafe, 600 Broad and Pink Slips.

You can get a map at the Visit Augusta - Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Later on Friday, there will be a jam session at the Partridge Inn with Mike Tanksley. There is no cover and any one can stop by. That runs from 7p to 10p.

Kigwana Cherry is with Garden City Jazz and he says these events are focused on recognizing the talented artists we have here. "If I want to hear some good music, I don't need to go to Atlanta, I don't need to go Savannah or Columbia. You can get a more intimate setting versus other places."

The Rooftop Soiree is sold out, but you can get still check out the Saturday Swing at the Market and the Signature Drink Crawl on Sunday.
