The town-wide yard sale which runs through Saturday kicked off this year’s annual Dogwood Festival in Orleans today.

While some events only happen once — and for a short time — others run all week long, such as the photo contest (OCC Unity Hall), the Student Art Show (Orleans Public Library), Vendor Arts & Crafts (Congress Square), and, of course, the carnival.

To help you plan your week, below is the full schedule of events.
