Plunge into music, arts, and dance
Submitted By Julie Machado
The Hayward Odd Fellows Sycamore Lodge #129 and Hayward Area Parks and Recreation District (HARD) are co-sponsoring seven free concerts again this year at Hayward's Memorial Park. Music and Art in the Park offers a variety of music such as Rock, Blues, Big Band and Jazz, Rockabilly, Beatles tunes, and a Celtic Celebration. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs and a picnic (no alcohol); dance, or play chess with chess masters. Kids of all ages are welcome to create chalk art.
A tot lot is nearby, as is a lovely hiking trail, indoor pool (the Hayward Plunge), tennis courts and plenty of free parking. This magnificent local park is managed by HARD, the premier recreational agency of the greater Hayward area.
Each event will showcase a local non-profit group; all donations received at that performance will go to the featured group of the day and are tax deductible.
