It's Valentine's Day weekend, but this list isn't just focused on Valentine's Day.

There are a ton of big events going on.

This week marked the start of the Chinese New Year. That celebration takes place over the weekend with the Chinese Culture and Cuisine Festival. If you love greek food, head out to Peoria for Greek Fest. There's a tattoo and beer festival at Arizona State Fairgrounds.

We also have some big acts in town this weekend, including Trace Adkins, Adam Sandler, David Spade and Rob Schneider.
