My picks for tonight: Healing Arts Festival and Peruvian-Mexican Fundraising event

It is Saturday, and you may be thinking about a good plan to enjoy this fabulous Supermoon evening. If you need ideas, let me suggest a couple of things that you probably have never done. How about going to an event that celebrates the Spring Equinox, the full moon, and the largest moon of 2011 with cool music and healing workshops? If you are curious, then come and recharge your soul, mind, and body with the first ever Healing Arts Festival tonight at MultiKulti in the Wicker Park neighborhood (1000 N Milwaukee). There will be  healing workshops from 6 to 9 pm and later that night, you get the chance to hear the newest band to hit Chicago with their Rumba Reggae Fusion: Nu Bambu.  For more information about this event, click here.

If you rather do something around good food, dance performances, help a good cause, and go to bed early,  then come to a Peruvian-Mexican fundraising event (also in Wicker Park) that a Loyola student is organizing to raise funds to go back to school. It runs from 6 to 10pm. The ticket costs $15 and includes a Mexican-Peruvian 4 course menu and Peruvian Folk dance, music and Breakdance performances. The group I belong to, Peruvian Folk Dance center, will be performing at 8:30 pm. For more information about this event, click here or call 773.673.7292

Have a wonderful Saturday!
