Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

If running with the bulls in Spain is on your bucket list, then you're in luck. Today the bulls are coming to you for the Great Bull Run at the Hawthorne Race Course. The organizers of this homage to the Pamplona tradition are quick to remind you that people hardly ever die from bull stampedes; this event isn't as dangerous as it sounds. A grand tomato fight follows.

Nothing says summer like drinking outside during a circus. Make that happen at Tour de Fat, New Belgium Brewing's celebration of beer, bikes, and the big top. The bike parade kicks things off at 11 AM, and the entertainment—which includes Mucca Pazza—starts at 1:35 PM.

Country darlings Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss & Union Station perform today at Ravinia Festival. Nelson's performance has "only improved with time," according to the Reader's Miles Raymer. Pack some snacks and an umbrella, because all shows are rain or shine.
