Yahoo Gives Upcoming a Makeover

Just in time for the Fourth of July, Yahoo has given Upcoming a new look. They've also increased the scope of events searchable on the local events site. New event types include farmers markets, craft fairs and street festivals.

Events for over 8,000 cities can be found on Upcoming and the results are also integrated into other Yahoo products, including My Yahoo!, Travel Guides, Music, and Local. Last October, Yahoo announced that Upcoming would be blended into its search results, along with Flickr and Yahoo Answers.

If you already have an account on Upcoming, then you'll still have access to your communities. Check out the screenshot below to see the new look:
