If you've fallen into a Father's Day rut of skipping church with your dad to go fishing/golfing/all-you-can-eat-buffeting, how 'bout a little international music and culture to change the pace. That's what the organizers of "¡Celebrate!" promise — with two exclamation points no less — in this second annual event in North Little Rock. The music line-up includes locals Malcadence, Fayetteville party band Groovement, Texas teen all-girl band Atomic Pink and Latino artists Sangre Michoacana (above), Cadetes-de-Linares and Las Kponeras. There's a motorcycle show, where you can register to win a new custom bike; a Latin dance contest that features more $1,000 in cash and prizes; food and drink vendors and a carnival that opens on Saturday at 6 p.m. Children under 13 get in for free.
