  • CRUISIN': Wax up your hair, break out the poodle skirts and put a little elbow grease into those hubcaps — the Medford Cruise is hitting the streets this weekend. It starts at 5:30 this evening with a show 'n' shine for all makes and models in Hawthorne Park and a 7:30 concert by Santa Barbara, Calif., rock band The Duquanes. Saturday will have more show 'n' shines for vehicles in Hawthorne Park, followed by a 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. cruise through downtown. For more details, see Tempo inside today's paper, or at www.mailtribune.com/tempo
    MOTOR ON: In keeping with the vehicle theme, take ol' Dad out this Father's Day weekend and show him something even older at the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Show in the historic community of Pottsville near Grants Pass. It starts at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday and runs through the afternoon. The event includes engine and tractor demonstrations, along with some old-time favorites such as gold panning, blacksmithing, quilting and spinning and live bluegrass music.
    ALL THE WORLD ... is a stage, especially in Ashland, where the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is filling its stages with world-class performances. Tickets are going fast, but at last count they were still available for everything from Shakespearean stalwarts "Richard III" and "The Tempest" to newcomers "The Cocoanuts" and "Into the Woods." Check out osfashland.org for ticket availability. Read more about this season's plays at www.mailtribune.com/shakespeare.
    HISTORY DAY: In keeping with the history theme, Jacksonville will host history exhibits beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday. Take a guided tour of Jacksonville's pioneer cemetery — with a focus on local art and artists of the cemetery — and check out the Beekman Bank and the Beekman House.
    BEER WEEK LIVES ON: It ain't over till they say it's over, and the organizers of Medford Beer Week aren't saying that yet. Events remaining include a kickball tournament at the Schoolhaus Brewhaus in Jacksonville at 4 p.m. today, a dodgeball tourney on Bartlett Street in downtown Medford at 5:30 p.m. and the big wrap-up tomorrow: The 2014 Southern Oregon Craft Brew Festival, with 25 breweries, plus food and other vendors. It runs from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday in downtown Medford.
