It's Tuesday, July 25, Hot Fudge Sundae Day. Happy birthday to singer and activist Rita Marley (1946), who helped birth (literally) a generation of reggae singers. Today in 1965, Bob Dylan played electric guitar (with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band backing him) at the Newport Folk Festival, a change met with howls and boos from the audience. Expect more sunshine and temperatures in the upper 80s. Grab a hot fudge sundae to go with your reggae today:

• Hear Katelyn Convery at Pioneer Courthouse Square's Noon Tunes, noon to 1 p.m., at the square.

• Boogie to a bhangra beat at the Bollywood Family Dance Party, 2 to 3 p.m., Holgate Library, 7905 S.E. Holgate Blvd.

• Get down with some home-brewed fun when the Freak Mountain Ramblers perform at Mt. Tabor Park, 6:30 p.m., Southeast 69th Avenue and Taylor Street.
