Pat Carr AND a Parade
You can do some serious improvement on your writing and then let off steam afterward with Eureka's ArtRageous Parade. 
Pat's Short Story Workshop, which opens our summer series on short fiction, is May 3 from 9-4.  Find out more here.

The parade is downtown at 6 pm. The ArtRageous Parade is the traditional kick-off of the May Festival of the Arts and includes a stream of floats, art cars walkers, dancers, musicians, jugglers, and the Africa in the Ozarks drum and dance group.
