Why Go: There will be plenty going on in Campbell this weekend, a lot for you and the kids to be doing. This festival attracts big crowds so expect Historic Downtown Campbell to be packed. With good reason. The festival features more than 200 booths with arts, crafts, and more. Live entertainment throughout the weekend, as well as a focus on cajun and New Orleans Style Food, which doesn't mean kids culinary tastes will be forgotten either.

Pricing: Free admission and parking

Where/When: , 1 W Campbell Ave., Campbell, Saturday, 5 p.m.

Why Go: Imaginarium is Firebird Dance Theatre's newest original dance show,  choreographed and directed by Lotta Lysaya Burton. What is it about? They ask you to imagine "an ordinary, nameless town. The town is quiet, orderly, and uneventful. Everyday the residents of the town go to work and their children go to school, dressed in black and gray. Every day is the same. The same, that is, until on one particular day … a traveling circus comes to town!" And then of course, everything changes.  Why don't you and your children go and see just what impact the arrival of the circus will have?

Pricing: $15 to $25

Where/When:, 1 W Campbell Ave., Campbell, Sunday 10 a.m.

Why Go: Learn something about Tamil culture in Indian by attending the annual event sponsored by the California Tamil Academy.  This will be a wide-ranging event with music, dance, art and more that is based on India's Tamil culture.
