MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Walker Art Center plans to put on the immensely popular cat video festival again this year and it's happening this week.

Around 10,000 people showed up in August 2012 to Open Field for the first Internet Cat Video Festival after word of the program quickly spread internationally via social media and the press.

Last summer, organizers presented the second festival to an even larger crowd at the Minnesota State Fair.

This year, the Walker brings the Festival back as a free event at Open Field on Thursday.
