# Sun May 2 Nike Missle Site SF-88L in the Marin Headlands free open house

# Sun May 210am-6pm – CINCO DE MAYO CELEBRATION – Okay, 1st off – yes, it’s on the 2nd, but that’s because the 5th is a Wednesday and some folks still have jobs (so we hear). Secondly, Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day but is rather a celebration of a fantastic victory by Mexican forces over the Napoleon III’s French army in the hills near Puebla in 1862, stopping short a French ambition to place Central America under their crown. Now that we’ve got all that straight, this is a big ol’ event with 3 stages offering mariachis, folk dancers, salsa, soca, and more; food a-plenty, and lots more, including a parade that starts at 10am on Mission (we think, there is conflicting information of the status of the parade). At the Civic Center Plaza – $5.

# Sun May 210am-4pm – WORLD’S BIGGEST FRISBEE GOLF WEEKEND – If you’ve never tried the inexpensive sport of Frisbee golf, now’s you chance at this massive event. There’ll be demos, playing tips, a guided tour of the new 12-hole Disc Golf Course, and more. In GG Park, Park Disc Golf Course, near Marx Meadow - $5 gets you a commemorative Frisbee, %10 gets you the Frisbee and a shirt, and kids under 16 get a Frisbee for free.

The Art of Resistance Political Artists' Conference
The 2004 conference is the first annual gathering of political artists
from around the country and the world. The conference will consist of two
days of workshops, speakers and events exploring political art.
Conference participants will receive hands-on skills and practical
knowledge, a broader understanding of the history and current state of
political art and benefit from the rare opportunity of being able to spend
a weekend in a building full of political artists from across the country.
We hope to strengthen the movement of artists for global justice by
linking together communities of artists whether geographically bound or
connected by specific issue.
