LINCOLN PARK — With spring seemingly about to fully spring forth, the weekend calendar is blooming in Lincoln Park and Old Town.

• Voices for Choices is an all-ages fundraiser for Planned Parenthood at 6 p.m. Friday at the Metro, 3730 N. Clark St. The brainchild of Francis Parker High School senior Natasha Lerner, it began with a few teenage bands she knew and grew to include Wild Belle as a headliner. Tickets are still available, $20 for students and $40 for others.

• The surest sign of spring is the return of the farmers' markets, and after the Green City Market returned last weekend in Lincoln Park the city-sponsored Division Street Market returns for its weekly sale from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at 30 W. Division St. Link cards are accepted.

 A variety of tours set off from the Chicago History Museum this weekend.

• Lincoln Park Zoo's Food Truck Social returns for its second year from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Saturday. Food trucks will be scattered throughout the zoo, with a couple of DJ-powered music stages as well. Among the trucks taking part are Beavers Donuts, the Pierogi Wagon, Tamale Spaceship, Cupcakes for Courage and Eataly Chicago with gelato. General admission is $10, $8 for zoo members.

• The Chicago History Museum launches an array of outdoor tours this weekend, some by foot, some by bike, some by CTA and a couple as dog walks. The mode of transportation and areas covered vary, as does the price, but all are led by museum experts.

The Joe on the Go Coffee Tour steps off on a three-hour tour at 9 a.m. Saturday at the museum, 1601 N. Clark St., at a cost of $40, $30 for members. A Gold Coast Running Tour follows at 9:30 a.m., covering three miles in 1 hour and 15 minutes at what's described as a "casual pace," visiting the Cardinal's Mansion, the Playboy Mansion and everything in between.

It's $15, $10 for members.

A History Puppy Crawl winds its way through dog-accessible spots in Lincoln Park at 10:30 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday, $20, $15 for members. Other tours this weekend under the museum's ChicaGO24 banner include Graceland Cemetery, Haunted Taverns and the "Devil in the White City" bus tour.
