Spring Sunflower Festival

When: Sat., March 20, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. & 6-9 p.m. 2010

If you go to Westside Community Center (1628 W. Bijou St.) today, you'll see so much activity that it'll be impossible to imagine the place collecting dust. And that's basically the point, of course: The Spring Sunflower Festival, which runs from 9 to 5, will funnel money into the Save the Community Centers Fund. One particularly notable way to help: For $1, you get three softballs to throw at a target that, when hit, will drop a City Councilor (either Tom Gallagher or Sean Paige) into a pool of cold water. Then, from 6 to 9, you can make a $25 donation to watch a "Hair Battle" — where area barbers and stylists compete to see who can make local models look prettiest. "It's kind of the equivalent to a modeling show," says organizer Karen Fleming, who adds that there will be door prizes. — Kirk Woundy
