10AM-4PM - RBAlive Expo!
Our good friend and benefactor, Nancy Canfield, has again invited us to be a part of the Cultural Center (Authors, Artists, RB High School Library, Historical Society) for their yearly street fair. Nancy said we will be in the same spot as last year, under the trees (along the sidewalk).
The San Diego North Chamber of Commerce, which Nancy is a part of, furnishes: tables, chairs, canopies & tablecloths. All of this is FREE for us.
Location: Bernardo Center Drive between Lomica Drive and Bernardo Plaza Court (see directions below)
Please email me by May 16, 2015 if you wish to attend so I can give Nancy a count. QTwoInk@sbcglobal.net
More info to follow as June approaches!
Have a terrific day.
Take Rancho Bernardo Drive Exit
Go East to Bernardo Center Drive - Turn Right
Go past Fire Station & Post Office to Bernardo Plaza - Turn Right
Follow Bernardo Plaza to the end and park behind Webb Park.
We will be somewhere in the Park near the sidewalk! Authors are always near Friends of the Library and local artists. Anyone there will be able to assist you.
There will be a full day of entertainment and enjoyment with over 300 booths. Visitors can browse the arts and crafts booths, get information from regional and local businesses, service clubs and religious organizations and of course partake in tasty treats and meals from food vendors. Several special interest areas are in store for the expected visitors. The Kids Zone will provide lots of rides, games and special carnival foods. The Cultural Center will have historical reenactments and local organizations will share their art, culture, history and/or handiwork. And everyone will want to stop by to view the Classic Car Show.
