NIAGARA FALLS — City residents won’t have to look very far for something to do this weekend.

Two area business associations are holding festivals Saturday and Sunday and the events coincide with the annual Homecoming Weekend coordinated by the non-profit group, Niagara Rises.

Saturday marked the beginning of the 11th-annual Niagara Street Area Business Association International Festival.

It also signals the start of what Main Street Business Association organizers hope will be a new tradition — a two-day Music and Arts Festival.
