As you start to plan your weekend, we've found five ways that you can have fun without leaving Farmington and Farmington Hills. And if you know about a fun event, click here here to add it to the Farmington-Farmington Hills Patch calendar.

1. Attend an outdoor concert. 

You can start your weekend early Thursday in Heritage Park, with a 7 p.m. concert by Mass Transit. Expect to hear a little rock, a little Motown and more from this nine-piece band. Downtown Farmington hosts Hullabaloo during Rhythmz in Riley Park at 7 p.m. The park is located on Grand River, just west of Grove Street. 

2. Enjoy Michigan-grown produce. 

Shop the Farmington Farmers and Artisans Market on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Music at the Market, which starts at 10 a.m., features Dan Goree, performing a mix of American rock-n-roll, rhythm and blues, Motown and country. (Hey, there's another outdoor concert!)

3. Learn from the experts how to re-purpose furniture.

Habitat for Humanity's new ReStore at 28575 Grand River in Farmington Hills is hosting a Family Fun Day on July 27, with games, give-aways and music and more starting at 11 a.m. From 1 p.m.-3 p.m., you can learn how to create real gems from used furniture. 

4. Connect with lost loved ones and help a local nonprofit. 

Internationally known medium Carole Grace will do a gallery reading July 28, 2 p.m., at the Hyatt Hotel in Livonia, as a benefit for Farmington-based Backdoor Friends Cat Rescue. Learn more and get tickets at carolegrace.com

5. Check out the new digital equipment at the Farmington Civic Theater.

Gone are the giant projectors and spools of film. The city-owned theater on Grand River in Farmington has new equipment, and audiences are raving about it (check the comments on the theater's Facebook page). This weekend, Man of Steel and Monsters University open, and Now You See Me continues. You can still catch Epic, Fast & Furious 6 and The Sapphires on Thursday.
