1. The Music and Art in Wright Park festival is a selfless act of goodwill toward this rough-around-the-edges place we call home - in the form of a free, all-day rock show for Tacoma, by Tacoma. After returning last year (from an eight-year layoff) with grand success, event coordinators Cody Foster, Roxanne Wolfe, Bennett Thurmon, Ken Johnson and Donna Herren are back with another installment, this year inviting 15 bands to the stage from noon to 7:30 p.m. in Wright Park.

2. Johnny's Dock Restaurant & Marina hosts Rock At The Dock II, a full day of car shows, a beer garden, food and two bands with an all-city dance benefiting The Breast Cancer Alliance from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

3. A historic rally of 1,000 Black Men Rally will take place at People's Park on Hilltop in Tacoma.  Inspired by a general void in consistent leadership, the need for empowerment and the general crisis of community apathy - the rally will include guest speakers and will be hosted from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. by former Tacoma Poet Laureate Antonio Edwards.  The rally will address issues of education, leadership and ways to improve the conditions in our communities.

4. Actress Trieste Kelly Dunn will be in attendance for the 3:15 p.m. screening of the film she stars in, The New Year, at The Grand Cinema as part of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film festival.

5. Galen McCarty Turner will jump his bike 3 inches off the ground through a wall of dirty, handmade, panty-melting neon tubing set up in the alley at 8 p.m. in the alley at Sixth and I Street. The performance has been heavily promoted as a public event and is a fundraiser for 2nd Cycle, Tacoma's Independent Bike Co-op located in Hilltop. Bike Jump T-shirts and limited edition event prints (printed on Brown and Haley Cherry Mountain Bar packaging sheets) will be available for purchase during the gathering. Merriment will commence after the neon is swept from the street.
