I like this design and the shape that the picture formed. It leads the eye in the right direction. I love the lines through the picture as well, it adds a lot rather than just having a picture behind the shape.
The color back grounds frame birds and flowers. For the larger, one-day events, (basically The happening monthly) I like the idea of having a similar event flier design with slightly different features based on the neighborhood, time of year, etc.
