The weekend is upon us, and whether it's art, nature or a neighborhood block party, we've got you covered. First off tonight head to the West Side for the party with the fun name:

"We're about to host our Summer Youth Chupachanga."

Keli Rosa Cabunoc of San Anto Cultural Arts says the kids have been creating lots of art.

"We hosted over 30 workshops on things like print-making, muralism, public art. They created portraits, they did photo-journaling, poetry, literary arts. All kinds of workshops."

San Antonio's biggest film festival is well underway. Its director is  Teacher/Film Maker/Entrepreneur Adam Rocha.

"This is a full throttle film festival. We're being recognized worldwide."

This is the 22nd time that Rocha has cranked up the San Antonio Film Festival machine.   

"There are 145 films from around the world, 29 San Antonio Film Makers.  We have Hell or High Water. That's their very first world premier and we're very excited by that."

You've managed to make it just about to the weekend and we've found some things you might find really fun. First, let's start Saturday at high noon at the Briscoe Western Art Museum where they're celebrating the International Day of the Cowboy. They call it the Briscoe Blast.

"Live music, art activities, and games for the adults and for the kids."
