On Saturday, April 11, the Manila Community Center is the place to be for one heck of a shindig. The Rosebud Jubilee is an all-day, family friendly fundraiser for Bella Vita Fire, a Dreammaker Project of the Ink People Center for the Arts, featuring a market from noon to 8 p.m. (free) Peruse vendor booths, eat and drink local foods and watch fire performers and belly dancers twirl and sizzle. Need to get your hoop on unencumbered in the spinning area? Let the kids romp in their own space in the kid zone. If you threw something out of whack hula-hooping, there's even a Zen zone with a mobile hot sauna bringing the heat.
Stay put because the party continues into the night at the Shake Down Lounge party from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. ($10). Trip out on the light fantastic with Marmalade Sky's bootleg recordings and multimedia show. Dance to the Dead, bid on band memorabilia and locally made "Deadhead art." The folks putting on the event ask that you carpool (no parking) and abide by the no open container rule. You can tote your conga for the drum circle, but leave Toto at home (no pooches, please).
