The weekend of August 27 and 28 will be filled with events surrounding the dedication of the national memorial honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. Many of these events are reserved for ticket-holders, and space is no longer available.

Here's one event that's free and open to the public, and it sounds like fun ... though it may be loud.
