A lot of the major Flint-area summer events happened in the last two weeks, but this holiday weekend is surprisingly busy if you’re looking for something more than the standard cookout or camping trip.

Arts, Beats & Eats

Arts, Beats & Eats is exactly what its name would imply — an art, music, and food festival. The big names among this year’s list of over 200 performing acts include 311, Candlebox, Grand Funk Railroad, The Wallfowers, and George Clinton.
