There are tons of events this weekend to keep you busy. As brought to you every Friday, here are my top picks:

While the arrival for fall means football for most, to me it signals arts and crafts time. And while I hated to miss last weekend’s Bluff Park Art Show, there’s another one this weekend at the Vestavia Hills Civic Center, 1973 Merryvale Road (but it faces Highway 31). The Vestavia Hills Art Association is putting on its 36th Annual Arts and Craft Show from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday; 1-5 p.m. Sunday. It’s free to look but you’ll have to pony up to take anything home. And don’t worry — If you want to know the score, it will be easy to find.

There are two options for the crowd with kids to hear music in kid-friendly settings. Friday night catch The Newgrass Troubadours at Aldridge Botanical Gardens, 3530 Lorna Road, Hoover, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Cost is $10 nonmembers/$8 members. Kids under 12 free. Then Sunday afternoon head to Vulcan Park for the second installment in the Vulcan AfterTunes Concert series. Gates open at 1 p.m. with Anders Osborne taking the stage at 3.

Additional parking is available across Valley Avenue at Jefferson County Board of Education — shuttle provided. Cost: $8, children 4 and under and Vulcan Park Foundation members free. Both events encourage lawn chairs and blankets.

Sure it’s very similar to the Greek Fest held at the end of September, but can you really have too much baklava? The Middle Eastern Food Festival at Saint George Melkite Catholic Church, 425 16th Ave. South, runs through Saturday. The weather should be nice today so consider eating lunch away from your desk. Click on the link for menu.

So what did I miss? Put it in the comments and let other Terminal readers know.
