SAT-17

WHITE CENTER JUBILEE--It all kicks off with a Pioneer Breakfast at the White Center Eagles hall ($4--ask Rick Bragg, it's the best deal in town). The parade starts at 10 am, of course, and Mae's sure to drag out that clown suit again--you know the one I'm talking about. A street fair, carnival, and beer garden (oh, jeez, don't tell Frank) round out the festivities. White Center, 15th Ave SW between SW 98th & SW 102nd, 762-6793, 7:30 am (breakfast)-6 pm, free.

CLASSIC CAR AUCTION--More cars, wot, crossing the auction block. Promises 350 cars ranging from classics to exotic. Western Washington Fairgrounds, Puyallup, www.kruseinternational.com, 800-968-4444, 10 am-6 pm, free.

TUES-20

KING COUNTY FAIR--How do you spice up a fair? Hire actors to break into spontaneous melodrama (fights, shrieks, love affairs), in period dress, at random locations throughout the fairgrounds.

WED- 21

SEATTLE MIME THEATER PICNIC--The headline to this press release says, "Imagine a Picnic with Seattle Mime Theater." To be honest, I cannot. But it sure is intriguing.
