Your bus commute may get way more entertaining this weekend when the sixth annual Exact Change performing arts festival uses five local bus routes as its stage. Each route's final destination is the New Haven Green where you'll be dropped off for continuing Exact Change celebrations, in conjunction with the May Day festivities. The Kings Band of Harmony perform on the 1:30 p.m. B4, which departs Whalley Avenue by the Dunkin Donuts near St. Anthony Street; Air Temple Arts and Circus Troupe will be on the 12:15 p.m. J4 Kimberly Avenue route, which takes off from Door 5 of the CT Post Mall in Milford; Viva! Z Fitness & Wellness showcase their Zumba skills on the 12:50 p.m. O7 Route 1 bus, which also departs from CT Post Mall's Door 5; Jose Montiero & Friends entertain on the 1:23 p.m. B1 via Congress Avenue, leaving from Burlington Coat Factory in West Haven; and the Elm City Dance Collective move through the 1:02 p.m. D5 Grand Avenue bus, leaving from the BJ's in North Haven. All performances come free with the regular bus fare, and it's a fun and easy way to get down to the Green for the rest of the day.
