The Festival of the Arts is back and alive and well in downtown Grand Rapids this weekend!. Free entertainment on multiple stages, art, and FOOD! It can be an eating frenzy because there are 16-different food booths to choose from!

So, what do you think? There is a lot of new food for the chomping, as well as old favorites. I know what I choose, beginning with this!
