Kids 'n Kites Festival
With spring breezes and more opportunities to enjoy warm outdoor activities, kites will soon fill the air. Although the exact date and origin of these creatures of the sky is not known, it is believed that the first kites were flown in China over two thousand years ago. One legend suggests that the first kite was created when a Chinese farmer tied a string to his hat to keep it from blowing in the strong winds. Kite flying then spread to Korea and India by traders, and each region developed a distinct style and cultural purpose for flying them. Within the United States, renowned scientists like Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Wilson used kites to learn more about wind and weather, while the Wright Brothers, Alexander Graham Bell, and many others experimented with kites to contribute to the development of the airplane.
Mount up for Rowell Ranch Rodeo week
The image of America as a land filled with men carrying guns and wearing cowboy hats lives only in the minds of newcomers and romantics. That changes this week when the Rowell Ranch Rodeo in Hayward takes us back to a time when a man was judged by his horse and how well he could rope and ride. As it has for the past 93 years, the Rowell Ranch Rodeo (RRR) celebrates the Western spirit with bulls and dust and mud (as the song goes), with something fun and dangerous-looking all week long.
Over 100 local participants kicked off the event in downtown Castro Valley on May 11 with the Rowell Ranch Rodeo Parade. Next up is the Celebrity Team Penning and BBQ Wednesday the 15th, starting at 3 p.m. at the RRR Park on Dublin Canyon Road where riders herd semi-tamed livestock into designated pens.

Wildflower, Art, Garden Tour and Quilt Show
Much like human beings, gardens blossom and evolve into something beautiful. They become a unique and joyful art form that brings us together. Embrace the wonderful creation of gardens, art and nature at the 20th annual "Wildflower, Art, Garden Tour and Quilt Show" on Sunday, May 19 in Fremont's historic Niles District.
Sponsored by the Niles Main Street Association, the show first began as a garden tour hosted by residents who wanted to share their gardens with the Niles community. With help from the Fremont Art Association, art was added. The quilt show portion of the event began three years ago through the efforts of Diana Lilies, owner of Color Me Quilts and More, located in the Niles District. This year's show will feature antique and new quilts displayed throughout the downtown area.
