In downtown Grand Junction this weekend the Jazz and Art Festival will take over. It kicked off Friday and goes through Sunday. For years this is where I have bought my last minute Mother's Day gift.

There will be 100's of vendors down at the Jazz and Art Festival this weekend and many gifts to choose from. If you have a mom that is hard to shop for this might be a good place to look. You will find unique homemade items that you won't find anywhere else.

My mom isn't that big into art, yet I was still able to find a Mother's Day gift for her down at the Jazz and Art Festival. My mom is a Denver Broncos fan and I was able to find a Broncos welded wall piece down at the festival.

Maybe you would just like to spend some quality time with your mom this weekend. There will be numerous live bands performing in downtown Grand Junction. Plus, they have a beer and wine garden that could make for a great Sunday afternoon. Grab some lunch and call Mother's Day a success.
