This weekend has a wonderful selection of fun family events to attend. Drive to Rutland August 11 or 12 for the 51st Annual Art in the Park, put on by the Chaffee Art Center. It is a popular event with juried artists, face painting, live music, and good food. (www.chaffeeartcenter.org/art_park.html)
