Unsure of what to do tomorrow? The eighth annual Unity Festival is happening—a day of hip hop, urban art, cultural events and workshops, lots of food and aguas frescas to celebrate youth, and encourage them to express themselves in a a positive and creative way. 

It is put together by Tucson High and the school's M.E.Ch.A—Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan—in honor of Consuelo Aguilar, who founded the festival. She died of cancer in 2009 at the age of 26. (The Consuelo Aguilar 2015 Scholarship Walk/Run is also tomorrow.)

Donations for the scholarships, which are given to students majoring in Mexican-American studies, and next year's Unity fest will be accepted at the gathering at Tucson High happening from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

There's going to be some mariachi music, hip hop and folkloric dancers, and spoken word goodness by the Tucson Youth Poetry Slam
