Weekend Fun: 5/13 - 5/16

Sounds like it is going to be yet another busy Arts & Crafts weekend all over the metroplex! Chances are, there is a great show happening in your neck of the woods, so run out and support your local Arts & Crafts community!

This first event is *not* an Arts & Crafts Show. It does look like a fun event that we could all benefit from, so that's why I'm posting it!
