Events on the Plaza
Submitted By Sean Brooks
This summer will be action-packed again at the Hayward City Hall Plaza area (777 B Street) with more than six concerts and five movies from May 18 through October 18, 2012. The Concert Series will commence on Friday, June 8, 2012 with the "Run for Cover" band at 5:30pm. They are a local rock group that will perform several Classic Rock hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s. They have something for everyone!
The Concert Series will also feature the "Jack Da Hat Luna" with the "Jackettes" (R&B/ New Orleans style Jazz) band on June 22 and "Sector 7" (original Rock and Roll) on July 27. Rounding out the calendar includes "Sunny Gunn's Firestorm" (Rock) on August 24, "Stay Away Joes" (Rockabilly Revival) on September 28, and a "Mariachi Festival" on October 12. All concerts will begin at 5:30 p.m.
Additionally, the regionally acclaimed Blues Festival returns on July 7 & 8, 2012 at City Hall Plaza, with two stages this year for the same price.
If live music does not excite you, there will be five movies on the Plaza shown in partnership with the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (HARD). Each will begin at 8:15 p.m. and will be projected on a 12-feet high, inflatable screen on the Plaza. The movie dates are Friday, May 18 (Happy Feet 2), Friday, June 22 (Kung Fu Panda), Friday, July 27 (The Muppets), Friday, August 24 (The Smurfs) and Friday, September 28 (Lorax).
These summer events are made possible by gracious donations from Buffalo Bills Brewery, Southland Mall, Toyota, HARD, and the City of Hayward. There are over seven banners strategically located in Downtown Hayward that feature the Summer Events calendar.
There is something for everyone and for the whole family. All the events are free with ample free parking across the street at the City Hall Garage at B & Watkins Streets. There will also be several food vendors at these events. Arrive early and stay late for what will be an entertainment-filled summer.
Everyone is welcome! See You at the Plaza! Celebrate and recreate in Hayward!
