This weekend: ‘Hunchback’ movie, Cinco de Mayo parade, West 10 jewelry launch and more

Kick the weekend off on Friday night by watching a classic flick updated with a new score — "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" at the Texas Theatre accompanied by Paul Slavens and his live orchestra.

Give your two cents on the redesign of Sylvan Avenue at Saturday morning’s charette, and claim some curb space for the Cinco de Mayo parade and festival on Jefferson Boulevard — the parade starts at 10 a.m. and the festival lasts from noon until 8 p.m. Don’t forget to drop by Dicho’s between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to buy a copy of "Images of America: Oak Cliff" and get it signed by the authors.

On Saturday night, make plans to attend Kings Highway’s potluck dinner and silent auction, plus stop by Indigo 1745 to view the launch of Kessler Plaza resident Rebecca Wong’s jewelry line, West 10. Her collection of semi-precious stones wrapped in vintage and contemporary elements is named such because Wong hand-makes each piece from her home on West 10th Street.
