Upcoming Events in the Q.C.

THURSDAY, NOV. 22 Here comes the holiday season. Time for feasting, rejoicing and standing outside in the cold to watch scantily-clad beings parade down the street. Happy, happy, joy, joy. The 60th Annual Carolinas Thanksgiving Day Parade will take you back to your childhood. Well, only if during your formative years, you were forced to grin and bear the elements all for the sake of "family time." Be on hand to watch the crowning of this year's Carousel Queen and the grand entrance of that big guy in red. Cheer up, it'll be Christmas before you know it and that's when the shit really hits the fan. 1 p.m. Begins at Tryon at 9th, turns left onto 3rd and ends between Davidson and McDowell on 3rd. 704-525-0250. www.carolinasthanksgivingparade.org.

FRIDAY, NOV. 23 Remember that movie with the little half-fish, half-girl that fell in love with that prince guy? It was made by Disney back in 198-something before Beauty and the Beast. Jodi Benson, the voice behind The Little Mermaid (that's what it was called), is coming to BPAC along with two other greats from the Great White Way. The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra joins these musical thespians during Bravo Broadway!, a tribute to New York's fabled theater industry. Doug LaBrecque starred in the Hal Prince revival of Showboat and toured with Les Misérables; Anne Runolfsson is currently on Broadway in The Phantom of the Opera.8 p.m. $16-$28. Belk Theater, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, 130 N. Tryon St. 704-372-1000. www.carolinatix.org.

SATURDAY, NOV. 24 If the Charlotte Bobcats manage a win tonight, it'll be a miracle. Even without taking into account the Bobcats' inconsistencies and recent sidelines, the real threat comes from within the Boston Celtics camp. The teaming of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett (yummy) and Ray Allen has been described as unstoppable. Already, the "Big Three" have managed a 3-0 record against some pretty good teams, including the Allen Iverson/Carmelo Anthony-led Denver Nuggets. Emeka & Co. had better bring their "A" game with a side of perfect scoring to roll over this group. It's not an impossible feat. Let's just say all the Charlotte fans will "keep hope alive." 7 p.m. $10-$85. Charlotte Bobcats Arena, 333 E. Trade St. 704-522-6500. www.charlottebobcatsarena.com.

SUNDAY, NOV. 25 Maybe Kim Kardashian hasn't let Reggie Bush come up for air long enough to keep him preoccupied. Or maybe that sore knee is still an issue. Either way, it doesn't matter. The Carolina Panthers should still make him "Public Enemy #1." We can beat the Saints and turn this whole season around. We have to. Otherwise, we'll have to give back that catchy nickname, the "Cardiac Cats." Time for some CPR, Panthers. Stat! 1 p.m. $36-$96. Bank of America Stadium, 800 S. Mint St. 704-358-7800. www.panthers.com.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
