This dude broke a collar bone and a shoulder blade in '06. And he's back for more. Show him some love Saturday in Canton.
Dutch street-arts dance troupe ISH celebrates its fourth U.S. tour at the Allen Theatre
(1519 Euclid Avenue; 216-241-6000) with its appropriately titled show, 4-ISH. Since 2000, the 12-member team of teens and 20-somethings has floored audiences with its choreographed martial-arts, bungee-jumping, inline-skating, and Xtreme-sports moves. A $10 ticket gets you a seat for the 7 p.m. show. If you can’t go tonight, the ensemble will perform an encore tomorrow at 11 a.m.
Nearly 50 of the country’s top bullfighters try to tame surly mammoth beasts as they compete this weekend on the Professional Bull Riders Tour at the Canton Civic Center
(1101 Market Avenue North in Canton). Watch for Cory Rasch, who’s back for another tour of battling ornery bovines. Serious fans remember his 2006 season, when he was bucked off and stomped on in one ride, and was off the circuit for several months with a gashed skull, broken collarbone, and fractured shoulder blade. Rasch later told reporters that the injuries come with the sport, which is insane, and is why he’s competing for the $1 million purse and not us. The doors open at 8 p.m. today and tomorrow, and tickets cost $18 for kids and $23 for adults by calling 330-489-3090.
Cleveland’s 65th annual Home & Garden Show is expected to draw more than 20,000 amateur interior decorators and home remodelers to the I-X Center
(6200 Riverside Drive; 800-600-0307) through next Saturday. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, the 20-acre show spotlights 900 home-improvement vendors, 30 gardens in bloom, six seminar stages, and three full-scale model homes, including two that float on water. Because this year’s fest takes on an Italian theme, part of the arena looks like a Roman piazza with Mediterannean-inspired landscaping, bocce-ball court, and Sicilian-style grub. Tickets are $13 for adults and $4 for kids between 6 and 12 years old.
