On Sunday, May 6, the African Children’s Choir will be performing at 6:00 p.m. at the First Covenant Church, 4000 Redwood Rd. in Oakland. This is the same church where the elementary children performed in the Kodaly festival last Saturday. It's a beautiful venue and very easy to access for most of us.

If you're up for a trip into the City earlier in the day, be sure to check out the How Weird Street Faire from 11:11 to 5:55 the same day. It's on Howard St. between 10th and 11th and it's going all-green this year. All stages will be run with bio-diesel and there will be much sustainable technology education happening.

If jazz is more your [groove] thang, there's a free outdoor concert at Yerba Buena Gardens at 1:00 on Saturday. Harriet Tubman: Bound for the Promised Land is a world premiere jazz composition and will feature an orchestra and guest vocalists in an oratorio in honor of Ms. Tubman.

And of course, not to ignore my heritage, there is a Cinco de Mayo-inspired Spring Breakfast by the Bay at Pier 1 1/2 in SF at 9:30 am featuring spring's harvest from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Then you can take Muni up to Dolores Park to hang out at the Cinco de Mayo Festival from 11 am - 5 pm. Have a great weekend!
