10 things to do in Columbus this weekend, including Wiz Khalifa, Legos

We’re a little past the dog days of summer, but please don’t tell our canine friends that. Many of them are probably very excited that Wag! Fest will be held Saturday at Prairie Oaks Metro Park. Pets and their owners can enjoy a day of fun, camaraderie and treats!

And music lovers have a lot to enjoy this weekend too. Two big music festivals will kick off on Friday, Breakaway and WonderBus, and run through Sunday. So much talent in Columbus in one weekend!

And that’s just the tip of the entertainment iceberg. Speaking of ice, don’t miss the adorable photo below of the dog relaxing on a bed of ice at last year’s Wag! Feast!

The weather forecast is looking beautiful all weekend, so get out there and enjoy all that the end of summer has to offer.
