Out in the crowd: Concerts, kids events planned for this weekend

Gwinnett kids can become Super Duper Mini Chefs this weekend.

Simon Kidgits Club, a children's membership club through Simon Malls, invites aspiring young cooks to come out for fun with food at the Discover Mills Mall food court Saturday, where they can make cereal necklaces, lollipop flowers and their own blend of trail mix to eat with ice cream.

Every aspiring chef needs an apron and those who attend can customize their own to take home.

A Simon Kidgits Club membership is not required to attend Saturday's event, and kids are invited to bring along nonperishable food items that will be donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
