6 things to do this weekend for $10 or less

1 University District Street Fair

10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday, University Way Northeast from Northeast Campus Parkway to North 50th Street, Seattle; free (udistrictstreetfair.org).

The grand-daddy of all crafts/music/food/sidewalk-sale-style fairs is back for its 44th year. It stretches for blocks and blocks and the people-watching alone is worth the trip.

2 3-Minute Masterpiece screening

10 a.m. Saturday, SIFF Cinema at the Uptown, 511 Queen Anne Ave. N., Seattle; free (www.siff.net).

"Freddie Hits the Pipe" -- one of the winners of the 2013 3-Minute Masterpiece contest.

“Freddie Hits the Pipe” — one of the winners of the 2013 3-Minute Masterpiece contest.

Nearly 100 Seattle Times readers made micro-movies to enter in this year’s edition of the 3-Minute Masterpiece digital-film contest, co-presented with Seattle International Film Festival. Eleven winners were chosen, and they’ll be shown at a free public screening on Saturday. Come meet the filmmakers and perhaps get inspired to undertake your own filmmaking project.

Browsing can be even more fun than buying at a garage sale, and on Saturday, more than 100 sales will be staged in yards, driveways and garages all over Phinney Ridge and Greenwood. A tool sale and recycling event takes place at the same time at the Phinney Neighborhood Center. Go to the PNC website for a map of participating households.

This Saturday provides a rare chance to peek inside Heronswood garden. As Ciscoe Morris explains, “the world-famous gardens at the former Heronswood nursery were purchased by the Port Gamble S’klallam Tribe, and under the leadership of Dan Hinkley, plant hunter and one of the original co-founders, the gardens are being restored to their formal glory.” The open house will features garden tours, a plant sale, S’Klallam Singers and food vendors.

6 Camano Island Studio Tour

10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Camano Drive, Camano Island, free (www.camanoarts.org/studio-tour).

How about a road trip to Camano? Always a pretty place to visit, this weekend it offers an extra draw: a self-guided tour of 31 artist studios and three galleries.
