I checked some of this out last year in Wascana Centre on the lawn to the north-west of the Legislature. It was a wicked hot day, but there was a pretty decent vibe with some entertaining music and high-energy dancing by exotically (and erotically) costumed women and men. And food too. Along with a beer garden. And some craft booths.

So if you get a chance, check it out this weekend. It runs today from noon-10 p.m., and tomorrow from noon to 9 p.m.  Single day tickets are $7, $10 for a weekend pass. Kids under 12 free.

And in a related vein, Latin Explosion 3 is happening at Artesian on 13th  at 8 p.m. Performing will be La Solucion, Ben Winoski Latin Project, and DJ Diablo. They’ll also be dance demonstrations. Tickets are $15 adv., $20 door.
