Both Alumni and the public are invited to celebrate the Chabot College Homecoming Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 20 at the Chabot College athletic field, adjacent to the football stadium. The event is sponsored by the Chabot College Foundation and admission and parking are free.
The Homecoming Harvest Festival runs from 12 - 4 p.m. and includes activities for the entire family, including a pumpkin patch, arts, crafts and games for children, line dance lessons, a country craft fair featuring community artisans and handmade jewelry, a farmer's market, ceramics and pottery, scrap booking, and much more. A food court will offer a variety of treats from kettle corn to hot dogs and the college's Automotive Technology program will present a display of classic cars.
Football fans can join in the spirit of the season when the Chabot College Gladiators team take on the West Valley College Vikings at 5 p.m. at the football stadium. Special guests at the Homecoming Harvest Festival will include two Chabot College alumni: Sylvia Chacon, a radio personality on Star 101 will kick off the Alumni Association's Homecoming membership drive by becoming a member herself. Joining her will be Chabot alumna Tracie Stafford, who was crowned the 2007 Mrs. California in April and became the first African American to win the Mrs. California, United States pageant.
Also on hand will be historian and local author Doris Marciel, who penned San Lorenzo Images of America. She'll be signing copies of her new book, which spans the history of San Lorenzo since its inception in1847, when squatters built cabins on what was then part of two Mexican ranchos.
