There are a lot of fun events happening this weekend.

The 32nd Annual Nampa Festival Of The Arts takes place Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The free event at Lakeview Park includes live entertainment, food concessions, and more than 190 artisan booths equipped with jewelry, painting, sculptures and more.

If you'd like to keep browsing, Capital City Public Market calls itself Boise's original farmers market. It's located in the heart of downtown on Eighth and Idaho. It is open every Saturday through December from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. If that's too far for you though, there are also farmer's markets in Kuna, Nampa, Caldwell, Emmett and Meridian to name a few.

If you'd like to channel your inner-princess this weekend, you can join the Disney characters at Simply Cats Adoption Center. The shelter will be open to participants Sunday to enjoy finger-foods, deserts, teas and treats. You'll be able to take photos and play games with the Disney princesses, as well as with the shelter cats!

You can keep on sipping tea as you watch Pride and Prejudice at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival Amphitheater on Sunday. The play is set in the 1800's about a woman who marries into a rich family, but soon learns that having money comes with a price. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets and chairs to watch the outdoor event.

If you're looking for something a little more fast-paced though, the 47th Pepsi Nightfire Nationals is going on all weekend in Eagle. Attendees can watch nationally-recognized drivers compete at this day-long event.
