Special Event Alert! Celebrate As One Festival Today!!!

Hi everyone!
Just wanted to let you know there will be a really wonerful music and cultural festival tonight on fountain square from 4:30-10:00 in celebration of Israel’s 60th birthday. Headlining will be an internationally-acclaimed band, Idan, as well as about a dozen other local performing groups! It really isn’t to be missed.
There is a huge tent completely covering the stages, so even if it rains, everyone including audience as well as performers will stay dry. It’s suitable for all ages and free – hope to see you there!!

PS The new Latin band I’m in, Poco Loco, plays at 6:50  … I’m helping out at the event, so if you do come at anytime, you’ll probably see me!
