MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Welcome to The Rundown, where we find events happening around Central and South Alabama and bring them to you!

We start this weekend in Lee county, where you can enjoy a Taste of Auburn with Cheers on The Corner. From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., you can visit over 20 tents that will provide you with a savory bite and drink that represents the city. Tickets are $45, and only people 21 and older can get one. One more bonus: every ticket comes with a complimentary souvenir wine glass!

This Saturday, Chilton county has its 11th Annual Chilton County Arts Festival from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. There will be tons of vendors, so be sure to stop by!

If your kids are heading back to school, then you’ll want to stop by the Back to School Backpack Pickup that’s being hosted by the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church. This Saturday, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., all you have to do is stop by the Dexter Parsonage Museum Parking Lot and pick up your backpack filled with school supplies!
