There are a few happenings of note this weekend in Bethesda, MD
Celebrate Mama: Performance by Rocknoceros, puppet show, belly dancing, giveaways, market & more. Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda Row. 11am-4pm. Woodmont Avenue around Bethesda Row will be closed for this.
Glen Echo Park Family Day: Family Day celebrates the opening of the Park's historic Dentzel Carousel for the 2009 season and highlights the full range of activities offered at the Park. The celebration also recognizes the Asian-Pacific American Heritage during the month of May with hula dance performances and art activities. Families will enjoy artist demonstrations, magic shows, family dancing, Irish dance performances, tours by National Park Service rangers and $1.25 carousel rides. The festivities begin at 11 a.m. and continue until 4 p.m. The playground has been closed for renovation and is slated to re-open early May. Hopefully by that they mean May 2nd, but I don't know if it will be open for family day.
Free comic book day: Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. Big Planet Comics is participating.
