4MRMarket Report: "Rainbow Lady and Princess Fiddlesticks" Edition

This week we have an interactive, kid-friendly show by the Kate Moran Band from 11am-noon plus a second collection for St. Rita's Annual Clothing Drive.  See below for more details on both.
We often try to come up with some sort of amusing title for the 4MRMarket Report, but when there is a performance entitled "Rainbow Lady and Princess Fiddlesticks," how does one improve upon that? Here's a little info on this fun-packed show from the Del Ray Music Festival:

"Get ready for all the excitement and fun that you get at a Kate Moran Band show, shrunk down to size for your little dudes! The Rainbow Lady (Kate Moran) and Princess Fiddlesticks (Lynn Rovelli) will entertain you with a combination of classic and original children’s tunes. 'Lady' and 'Princess' will keep you bopping in your socks until you just can’t rock anymore! Always on hand, inside the box of fun, tambourines, shakers and more for your little one to join in the fun, and if they are feeling like completing their rock star appearance, how about a nice little temporary Rainbow tattoo, from non other than Peppermint Patty!!"

Week 1 Haul for St. Rita's Clothing
Drive. Gear up to give one more time!

This week we host a second collection for St. Rita's Annual Clothing Drive. Like last week, St. Rita's Church is conducting its annual clothing drive and will be collecting gently worn, clean cold weather clothing and rain gear of all sizes this week. Once again, the collection box at the 4MRMarket Tent and the clothing will be distributed on Saturday, October 13th from the St. Rita School Hall to our neighbors in Arlandria.
