It is another busy weekend here in the Valley. We have tons of family-friendly activities happening all across town.

Chandler's annual Ostrich Festival is taking place this weekend. Never been? It's certainly an event that will have you living while also giving you a sense of adventure. Imagine what you can see while sitting atop an ostrich!

Chili lovers should venture down to Ahwatukee for their Chili Cookoff. They'll also have a carnival with music, and bounce houses for the kids.

For those looking to get rough and dirty this weekend, the Professional Bullriders' Chute Out is taking place at US Airways Center. Look for event info below.
