The weather is being asked to cooperate so Tri-City folks can enjoy a day in the park at Quarry Lakes in Fremont. Everyone is invited to listen to Chubby Checker, Disney Channel's The Cheetah Girls, meet KGO radio personalities and talk to sports celebrities when The East Bay Regional Park District and ABC Radio Disney present "A Walk In The Park: A Family Health & Lifestyle Expo," a day of fun and activities for kids and adults on Saturday, April 30.
The annual "Trails Challenge," a popular program in which a special commemorative pin and T-shirt is earned for completing five trails by December 1 will kick off the day's activities.
