Donned the winter coat against the wet chill this morning, and it looks like there's absolutely no chance of sun for the Rose Fest Grand Floral Parade.

Seriously, if summer ever starts it better dang well last until Thanksgiving.

Very busy with all things festival this weekend, so when you're not mixing it up with the rose court, floats, sailors or carnies, check out these:

Doug Fir will at least sound like summer with this Sly and the Family Stone tribute: Dance to the Music and Excellent Gentlemen play.

And over at Duff's the legendary swamp master Dale Hawkins! you may know him as Ronnie's cousin and the guy who hit it big with his recording of Suzie Q.

An intimate venue for juke stomping rockabilly.

PLUS - classic early 70s jazz fusion masters Return to Forever play the Schnitz. It's that killer electric piano-driven sound with Chick Corea on keyboards, Al Di Meola on guitar, Stanley Clarke on bass and Lenny White on drums.
