Events this Weekend Below the 10
Saturday will be the first meeting of the Pomona Hooping Club. A friend of the goddess will be running the show at Lincoln Park starting at 10 a.m. Bring your hips and a hula hoop. Some funkily decorated hoops will be available for sale if you find yourself alone and hoopless. Don't worry if your hips don't know how to move, this is a class. It will be by donation.
Turns out that hula hooping is the latest yoga-like craze. Why there's even such a thing as yoga hula. I'm told by my friend that concert goers started bringing hoops to L.A. shows, and from there the hip action spread. Who knew that Pomona would be the first inland city to get on board. I can not promise you yogic enlightenment through hula hooping, but my friend has lost 15 pounds in two months just by adding the hoop to her lifestyle. This event is geared for adults, but children four and over are welcome. If you think it's not your thing, well look at this guy. Hardest I laughed all day!
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, will be the Ohlone Pow Wow at 240 E. First Street between Garey and Gibbs. Click the photo for more info.
Friday and SAturday nights, Angelo's Pizza at Garey and Second Street (on the east side of the street) presents karaoke and live music, respectively. Karaokes not my thing, but perhaps it's yours.
And if you are just insistent on traveling north of the 10, this Saturday and Sunday, the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Gardens will start their Spring Garden Walks. Cost is $4 a person or $8 a family. Walks are from 2 to 3 p.m. on SAturday and 2 to 4 p.m. on the hour on Sunday. They will continue until May 18, 2008. Be sure to check out the poppy maze.
