GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Grand Rapids is full of events this weekend for anyone looking to get out and enjoy the summer weather.

Movies in the Park kicked off its six-movie series Friday at Ah-Nab-Awen Park with a balloon release and a showing of "The Wizard of Oz."

If you missed that, you can still get downtown this weekend for mouthwatering food and art at the Festival of the Arts.   About 300,000 people are expected to come between Friday and Sunday.

If you missed out on the fun Friday, you can also attend the Local First Street Party Saturday outside Bistro Bella Vita.  The event features live bands, food and cold brews.
