I've Got Sunshine on a Not-So-Cloudy Day

By Kyle Fuller June 3, 2011

The day you have been waiting for has finally arrived! No, I'm not talking about the rapture. I'm talking about good weather, which feels like almost as big of a deal (just kidding Father Raphael Mary, just kidding).  It also means you actually have to get out of the house this weekend.

Lucky for you, the PubliCalendar is back. Make sure to check PubliCal daily, because now that I graduated from college (purple and gold for life), I've got to do something with my Creative Writing degree (trust me, there's nothing else to do with it). I'm thrilled PubliCola has brought me on to keep their events cal loaded with all the latest civic, art, and cultural musts that are going on around town.

For the last two years I've been working in the Associated Students of the University of Washington's Arts and Entertainment office planning major events and concerts, and now it's time for me to expand my horizons beyond the U District. It's a big world out there, and the new kid is going to need some help finding events. So send any events you think I should put on the calendar to [email protected].

Here are a few events I've got on the calendar for this weekend that I want to highlight:

Pagdiriwang Philippine Festival- June 4th-5th Seattle Center.

What do Bruno Mars, Cheryl Burke, and the cute guy from Glee all have in common? They're Filipino! Celebrate the anniversary of the Philippines's independence from Spain in this two day festival with music, dance, and food all from the Philippines.

Let's Stop Getting Chased- June 5th, Othello Playground, 11AM

Since the sun is out, I know exactly what you want to do this weekend—join a protest! March to Chase Bank (passing  by a foreclosure and schools and health clinics hit by recession-induced budget cuts along the way) and deliver a letter to Chase Bank exces. I'm sure the event will include  chants.

Bicycle Sunday- June 5th, Lake Washington Blvd., 10AM-6PM

Go outside and learn how to share the not sharing the road. Grab your kids and your kittens and walk or bike along Lake Washington Blvd. to the entrance of Seward Park as LWB is closed to motorized traffic during the day.
