If you are looking for something to do this weekend you won't have to look too far. There is everything from the music fest "Kicking up Kountry" in Karlstad -- to the season's first farmers market in Grand Forks.

And while you're at the market you can take in the World Refugee Fair which is also in the town square downtown. The fair is a celebration of the different cultures that live in Grand Forks. People can experience food and entertainment by former refugees now living in the local community.

Cynthia Shabb, Global Friends Coalition: "It is a lot about awareness and there is a lot people from Botan, Somolia, lot of dancing and singing."

The farmers market starts at 9 am Saturday morning.
