Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Our Stacey Pensgen has some ideas for you in this week's around town.

We start at the 43rd Annual Puerto Rican Festival in the VIP Parking Lot at Frontier Field. The festival features three days of live salsa music, food, celebrity guests, and lots of performances - even a parade on Saturday. This year's theme is "Remembering the past, building the future." Hours are noon through 11pm on Saturday, and noon through 7:30 p.m. on Sunday.  Tickets are $10 per day, $5 for senior and children (kids under 5 are free).

Next, we take you to the 55th Annual Pultneyville Homecoming Festival. The Hamlet, located about 25 miles east of Rochester on the south shore of Lake Ontario, will be the site of lots of fun activities this weekend, like an antique show, homecoming parade, walking tours, food and baked goods, and music this year, the celebration will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. The festival basically runs all day on both Saturday and Sunday, and the event is free.

Last, we take you to Palmyra, where thousands of people from around the world have been traveling to see Hill Cumorah, a production put on by the church of latter day saints. The pageant depicts the history of the Mormon religion, including Joseph Smith, who they believe was a prophet. It is a spectacular show with thousands of volunteers, special effects and costumes. The last performance for this year's pageant is Saturday at 9 p.m. Parking and admission are free,  and you do not need a ticket.
