Another great weekend forecast can only mean one thing, an excuse to get outside and enjoy all things West Michigan. Here are a few events for the kids and adults in Todd's Weekend Adventures.
Rockford Summer Sidewalk Sales
Here's a chance to do some shopping in downtown Rockford. Their Summer Sidewalk Sales are going on until 3 p.m. on Friday, and then again Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Some stores are even staying open later and offering huge discounts on summer and past season styles.
Grab some wet wipes and a big appetite, one of Kalamazoo's biggest festivals of the summer, Ribfest, is taking place over the weekend.
The three-day festival runs through August 3. It includes live music from nationally and locally recognized artists, award-winning ribs and other barbecues.
Admission to the event costs $10 after 4 p.m. each day. Before 4, the event is free. Children 12 and under also receive free admission.
