Family Day at Galindo-Higuera Adobe
Submitted By Kelsey Camello
On Saturday, April 30, Rancho Higuera Historical Park will be open to the public for an exciting day of Òfamily rancho fun,Ó suitable for all ages. This annual event is sponsored by the Washington Township Museum of Local History, caretakers of the property.
This year, the event will feature, among other fun elements, ÒRattlesnake RogerÓ with his amazing collection of spurs and leggings. He is an ardent enthusiast of this time period, and he resides in Milpitas. His collection of spurs and other rare artifacts rivals even the best museums. Come and see this unique collection and learn about Alta California when it was under Spanish and Mexican rule.
Along with this fabulous collection, there will again be beautiful Folkl—rico dancing with Amaya, a 3rd grade student from Mission San Jose Elementary School who charmed the crowd at last yearÕs event. She has been dancing for four years. Additionally, Mexican food and drinks will be available for purchase; there will be rancho activities for children, face painting, a video about the history and restoration of the adobe, and at 2 p.m., there will be a pi–ata under the black walnut tree. A small museum store will also be in operation.
Come on out and enjoy a step back in time to the rancho period at Rancho Higuera Historical Park. A suggested donation is appreciated at $10 for a family or $5 per person. Parking is available at street level. Persons who are physically unable to walk up the hill can request a ride from volunteers. For questions or for additional information, please contact Dianne Holmes at (510) 623-7907.
