NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It seems there are always plenty of amazing things to do in Middle Tennessee every weekend and this weekend is no exception. Check out some of your options below:

Kissel Entertainment Carnival

The Kissel Entertainment Carnival is back at the RiverGate Mall in Goodlettsville beginning this weekend. While the carnival will stay at the mall for 10 days, this weekend is supposed to be beautiful outside and therefore may be the perfect time for you to hop on a ride and soak up some sun at the same time.

The carnival will boast 18-25 rides, six foot carts, and 12 game booths that are sure to provide fun for your entire family. A wristband for unlimited access to rides can be purchased for $20.

You can find the carnival in the Upper Dillard's parking lot across from Chik-Fil-A off Gallatin Pike. You can also view more information like hours on the RiverGate mall website.

Bellevue Community Picnic

There's nothing quite better than an event that allows you to get to know those who live in your community, right? If you agree, the Bellevue Community Picnic may be the perfect place for you to spend you time this Saturday.

The picnic is being held on the Recreational Field behind Bellevue Middle School, 655 Colice Jeanne Road, and will take place from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
