Food vendors will offer a variety of food and drinks. Scheduled to participate are The Tropic Truck and The Ice Princess. A new food booth this year is Beyond the Olive (from Pasadena) specializing in olive oils, vinegars, dips, sauces and nuts. If you are a Member or Partner stop by the ‘Welcome Members and Partners Booth’ in the morning for a free coffee and a pastry – our way of saying thank you for your support!
For the children, instructors from the Creative Arts Group have planned a special craft activity – learn how to make yarn spinners, using markers or colored pencils add colors to illustrate the pre-cut circular disk on both sides then add colored yarn. Be sure to visit our very creative Face Painter located in the Southeast section of the park next to CAG.
Again, this year we will feature a Silent Auction. To date, 26 artists have donated lovely, one-of-a-kind pieces for the auction, which means you’ll have an opportunity to bid on some really beautiful artwork and also support the Library.
