In principle — particularly if you grew up in the wonderland called South Dallas — it's more than enough just to wander around the charm-basted streets of Stonington Borough.

Throw in some free music, as with Saturday's 5th Annual Stonington Sounds Summer Music Festival, and it becomes a sense-working-overtime destination. Concerts take place throughout the day in various outdoor/indoor locations in the Borough, headquarterd at the La Grua Center. There's a wide variety of artists and styles, and the sets are staggered so attendees can shop, feast and stroll at leisure.

The lineup:

11 a.m. — "Sing & Play with Ms. Bergin" (children's concert, Wadawanuck Square)

Noon — United States Coast Guard Dixieland Jazz Band (Wadawanuck Square)

2  p.m. — Mansion Vocal Band (barbershop quartet, Stonington Commons Green)

3 p.m. — Elena Zamolodchikova (harpsichord/piano, La Grua Center)

4 p.m. — Zaccai Curtis Jazz Quartet (Afro-Cuban, Stonington Commons Green)

7 p.m. — Sonia Bettencourt & Guitarras Do Atlantico (Portuguese Holy Ghost Society)

Feel free to bring a lawn chair or blanket. There's public parking at Town Dock, Wayland's Wharf, DuBois Beach, and St. Mary Church (11 a.m.-3 p.m. only). In case of rain, all performances take place inside the La Grua Center.

Fifth Annual Stonington Sounds Summer Music Festival, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday, throughout Stonington Borough; free;
