Far from the traditional male beauty pageant with bodybuilders and Speedos, the 10th annual Mr. Healdsburg Pageant
features everyday members of the community. Each contestant creates a nickname and competes in the talent, eveningwear, beachwear and interview categories. This year’s seven finalists include 74-year-old Mr. Basso Profundo, who plans to blow the crowd away with his singing voice; Mr. Hot Stuff, who hopes to wow everyone with his winning looks; and Mr. Hotlicks, who started a Facebook campaign in attempts to seal the deal. Who will take home the plastic crown? Find out Saturday, Feb. 23, in a benefit for the Raven Performing Arts Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. 7:30pm. $40—$60. 707.433.6335.
