This weekend in Windsor offers up some of the most eclectic and diverse events imaginable.
On the agenda are a Bollywood film festival, a Miss Windsor Beauty Pageant, a polar splash and an everything-must-go sale at a community theatre.
CBC Windsor's Mike Evans is the man who checks the pulse of fun things to do Windsor-Essex.
1. A Hundred Years Plus One: Indian Cinema Celebration
The event takes place at the University of Windsor, where Indian films will be screened and then discussed by a panel of professors in the school's film studies program.
The festival started last weekend, but continues on this weekend as well.
The panelists will talk about the culture of Indian cinema and analyze where it came from and where it is going.
It was originally thought the first Indian feature film was released 100 years ago in 1913, but devotees will tell you that technically it was a year earlier in 1912, so that's where the film festival gets its name..
All the screenings and panel discussions are a free to attend and are being held at Toldo Hall on the University of Windsor Campus.
The film Madras Café will be showing Friday at 6 p.m. Saturday at 3 p.m. there will be a screening Shuddh Desi Romance.
2. Miss Windsor & Miss Teen Windsor Beauty Pageant
The pageant takes place Saturday night at the Capitol Theatre.
There will be the traditional aspects of a beauty contest; the gown competition and the question-and-answer segment.
A key component to the competition is a category called "philanthropy and community outreach." The contestants chose their own charities, they raised money, and all the charities get to keep 100 per cent of the money raised.
The pageant starts at 6 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $20 and a portion of the proceeds raised will benefit the Capitol Theatre Fund.
3. Windsor Theatre Alive Sale
Windsor Theatre Alive is closing after nearly 30 years of performing community theatre. In those 30 years they accumulated a whole warehouse of props, wardrobe and sound equipment.
So, they are opening up their warehouse to the public this weekend.
The sale started Thursday and runs Friday night and Saturday.
Everything must go.
Bryan Raisbeck of Windsor Theatre Alive said there are one million costume sets available.
"It's insane," he said. "We have so much great stuff to sell."
Items are from Hairspray and Westside Story, for example. Ball gowns, wigs vampire costumes are all up for sale.
4. 5th Annual Polar Splash
The dip happens Sunday at 1 p.m. at Belle River Beach.
The event also raises money for a good cause. Community Support Centre porgams and the Lakeshore Food Bank will split the money raised.
Thirty people are registered to swim.
Swimmers dress in crazy outfits. The costumes are judged and the best one wins a brand new tablet. Some even dress up their dogs to take part.
After the dip, swimmers will head back to the Belle River Legion for some live entertainment and lunch.
