In keeping with the ethnic theme, there will be a Mariachi band with traditional dancers at 8 p.m.. Mexican food vendors and a beer garden will also be on hand.

At the other end of town, there is going to be a black light zumbathon in the Rio Theatre from 7 to 8:30 p.m. This is a fund-raiser for new playground equipment in Helper Park. Tickets are $10.

Sweet Sorrows will perform authentic Irish music at the Balance Rock restaurant.

While all this is going on there will also be a Blast from the Past 50s block party. Period costumes are encouraged.
