It's a big weekend in San Francisco's Fillmore District. The annual Art Walk is Friday night and the Fillmore Jazz Festival is this weekend.

The Fillmore Art Walk is an artisitic celebration of the neighborhood.

"Let art do what it has done historically which is unify communities, drive moments like the Fillmore art movement, we're really passionate and really excited about it," Melonie J. Green of Infinite Sync said.

It's the uniqueness of the art and spirit of enthusiasm that drives the event.

The Fillmore has always been about the music. So it is celebrated for this weekend at the Fillmore Jazz Festival with 12 blocks of music, food and a lot of art.

But the Fillmore's music legacy is celebrated daily in the Jazz Heritage Center. Visitors come from around the world because music is an international language.
