3rd Annual Frida Festival

This is one contest you actually might not want to win - the Frida Kahlo look-alike competition at the 3rd Annual Frida Festival. (Kahlo's husband Diego Rivera might have liked her mustache and unibrow, but it's been awhile since excessive facial hair on women was in fashion.) The contest is just one of the events on the schedule; there's also an art show featuring works by children from the Flor de Canto program, folkloric dancers, poetry readings and live music. 2 to 6 p.m. East End Urban Market, 716 Telephone. For information, call 713-924-9506. Free.
Sat., July 11, 2-6 p.m., 2009
