Little Five Arts Alive, a free weekly series of outdoor arts events, will enliven Findley and Davis Plazas (at the corner of Euclid and Moreland Avenues) every Saturday and Sunday from 5 to 8 p.m. through Nov. 5.

The programming will highlight a wide variety of artists – music, dance, theatre, visual arts, crafts, circus, performance art and more. Attendees can watch, nosh and sip at tables on Findley Plaza with food and drink service provided by The Porter Beer Bar from 4 to 9 p.m.
