2. "March Madness" wrestling in Cloverdale: Allstar Wrestling returns to the fairgrounds’ Alice McKay Building Saturday night (March 28) with a "March Madness" gathering of grapplers, including a triple-tag-team title bout and a Grudge Match pitting Azeem The Dream against Disco Fury.

Thursday Artist Talk at Surrey Art Gallery: Langleyite Suzanne Erickson shows how she incorporates gourds in her artistic adventures during the monthly event, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 2 at Surrey Art Gallery, Bear Creek Park.
