Things are looking up this weekend, especially since there is a cool air show, open climb for kids, and a bird festival happening. If the sky is your limit and you’d rather stay grounded, check out an interactive play or do snag some unique wares for mom (Happy Mother’s Day!) at a small biz fair ran by kids.
