Cheap Thrills

GREAT TREE SEARCH: Get out this week and search for your nominee for the 1995 Old Pueblo Great Tree Search. As part of its "Global ReLeaf" mission, Trees for Tucson is looking for "the tallest, biggest and most unusual trees (in the Tucson area), as well as groves of trees that have special ecological or historical significance." All nominations will be considered for the annual Tree Tour in October. Call 791-3109 for information; or mail your entry to P.O. Box 27210, Tucson, AZ 85726. Deadline is August 31.

ZUNI FETISH: Get your rocks off with this celebration of Native American fetishes (you know, the ones carved in stone), from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, August 25, at the Sonoran Desert Marketplace, 1333 N. Oracle Road. Author Kent McManis will discuss the "ancient and beautiful" religious carvings, and sign copies of his book, A Guide to Zuni Fetishes & Carvings. A huge selection of Zuni and Navajo fetishes will be on display and available for purchase. Call 623-4018 for information.

JAVA JAM: The Sunrise Chapel, 8421 E. Wrightstown Road, rekindles its Coffee House Music Series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, August 26, with Three Generations, a versatile local group "that takes on everything from country fiddling to Elvis impersonations." The Sunrise Coffee House--which, incidentally, doesn't serve coffee--provides an "alternative environment for quality entertainment" with monthly featured performances. Call 298-1245 for information.

FIESTA DE SAN AGUSTÍN: Make history at the 13th annual Fiesta de San Agustín with food booths, children's activities and continuous live music and entertainment from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Arizona Historical Society, 949 E. Second St. Featured events include a 7 p.m. street dance on Saturday, with Polo Romero y Su Conjunto; and a procession with a statue of the saint himself at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission and parking are free. Call 628-5774 for information.
