Oh, and bonus: they can burn off some of that energy kids have way too much of.

From getting wet to watching Lucha Libre matches to celebrating the bug life, here are 3 fun, family-friendly events going on this weekend.

If it squirms, slithers, or buzzes chances are it will be at the biggest bug bash of the year.

Live entertainment, arts and crafts, games, inflatables, and delightful decorations will be part of the fun.

Feeling a little famished and particularly adventurous? Go ahead and nibble on Chocolate Cricket Chip Cookies or Scorpion Tostadas. [Get More Details]

Mariachis, arts and crafts vendors, food trucks, and now you can add masked wrestlers to the lineup of Fiesta de las Luces.

It wouldn't be a block party that celebrates local culture without luchadores, given how big a part Mexican wrestling and wrestlers are in our border culture.

The heroes and villains of Lucha Frontera will rumble and tumble under the lights, and food trucks and live music will add to the festive family-friendly mix. [Get More Details]
