Wild West Street Party
Hayward goes western when the second of the Hayward Street Parties hits Thursday, July 21. "Wild West Days" will feature music from California Cowboys, who have shared billing with such country greats as George Strait, The Judds, Pam Tillis, and Merle Haggard; pony and wagon rides courtesy of the Rowell Ranch Rodeo; plenty of tasty BBQ; and an appearance by Miss Rowell Ranch Rodeo 2011, Danielle Williams.
Up to 80 vendors are expected at the event, and jugglers, face-painters, games for kids, and the Vic Hubbard classic car show along Main Street are all part of the fun. Two beer gardens will be set up in the festival area, and favorite local band The Diehards will also be performing, covering five decades of great Classic Rock dance songs.
"Our first event of the season, 'Hot Summer and Salsa Night,' drew upwards of 6,000 people and was great fun. Now in their 12th year, downtown Hayward Summer Street parties feature more family reunions per square block than anywhere else in the Bay Area. And they're also great for downtown businesses as well," says Hayward Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kim Huggett.
So grab your boots and buddies and join the party! Stay tuned for "California Dreamin'" August 18, and the Art, Wine, Specialty Beer and Ale Festival September 17.
