June 2: Saturday Schedule

March for the River - 12:00 pm

Show your love for the river! This is an all-ages one-mile march. Participants are invited to come as they are or dress up like their favorite watershed critter. Signs, costumes are welcome but not required. Roller skates, one-wheels, skateboards and bicycles are welcome but the march will move at a walking pace. The March starts under the Soquel Avenue Bridge (East Side, near Riverside Lighting) and ends at the Tannery.

All participants please arrive at 11:45 am to sign-in and so that we can line folks up.

Celebration at the Tannery - 12:30-4:00 pm.

Art making, food trucks, and performances featuring world-renowned vertical performance pioneers BANDALOOP.
