If you are looking for something to do this weekend, you might want to head out to Port Aransas. That's where the 17th annual Whooping Crane Festival is taking place.

The event is luring thousands of bird watchers to the Coastal Bend. They say that whooping cranes travel roughly 2,500 miles from Canada to the Texas Coast.

Folks representing 28 states are in Port Aransas for the festival. There are even some people from Canada there as well.

All proceeds from the festival go to the International Crane Foundation.
