The 12th annual Blues & Views Festival returned to the Levitt Pavilion, located on the banks of the Saugatuck River, on Saturday. Featuring performances throughout the weekend, the festival also offers kids’ activities like face painting, a specialty food marketplace and a food court.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Staples High School Tuition Grants and Wakeman Town Farm.

Bob LeRose, a restaurant owner and music enthusiast, originated the event over a decade ago, when his establishment, Bobby Q’s, was located in downtown Westport.

The concerts continue Sunday. The event takes place rain or shine, and kids 12-and-under are admitted free.
