The three-day "Momentum" Festival will help bring the summer to a close this weekend in downtown Toledo.

Momentum is a three-day festival of glass, art and music taking part in multiple locations throughout Toledo.

Members of the New Power Generation will join the Symphony in the tribute.

It is free to get in and starts at 7:30 p.m.

There will be on-site aluminum casting, glass blowing and other public art projects.

The fun continues Saturday night with ‘Momentum After Dark’ which will feature headliner The Commonheart, in partnership with music venues in the Warehouse District.
