This week: dragon boats, stilts and chicken hats


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

Perfect week for learning to walk on stilts, don’t you think? The members of the Magic Smelt Puppet Troupe think so. They are giving free stilt walking classes Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at the Central Hillside Community Center.

The Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival runs Friday and Saturday at Barker’s Island in Superior. On the other side of the bay you can see cover bands galore at The Tribute Fest with tributes to Tom Petty, AC/DC, Ted Nugent and more this Friday and Saturday at Bayfront.

This Saturday you can see eight brand new short plays written and produced over a 24 hour period. Raw and often hilarious, see the Chicken Hat Plays at the Harbor City International School Theater.

This Sunday celebrate the Hillside neighborhood at HillFest with outdoor music, a climbing wall and a tofu toss! Because when I think Central Hillside, I think flying tofu.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know!`

This is my plug for Tofu Toss teams. The Tofu Toss is as fun to watch as it is to toss. A mere $5 gets your 2-person team entered and all proceeds (including bribes for the ref) go to the Mind2Mind program. Only past-date tofu is used for this event. Sign up at the Co-op. Come and support Mind2Mind at HillFest!
