Next Hayward Street Party celebrates "Star Spangled Summer"
Submitted By Kim Hugget
Hayward Street Party season continues on Thursday, July 18 with bands on four stages, a 100-vehicle car show, street entertainers, food, and an amusement zone for kids as part of celebrating a "Star Spangled Summer." The event will be celebrated on B Street between Foothill Boulevard and City Hall on Watkins Street.
Among the bands will be Hayward's own upbeat classic rock dance band The Diehards on the Bank of the West Stage and Mitch Polzak and the Royal Deuces on the Bistro Patio Stage. Bands yet to be named will perform in the Blues Garden at Newman Park and on the Buffalo Bills stage.
Additional fun will be provided by street entertainers, face-painters, and games for kids. Adults will enjoy the 100 hot rods and classics at the Vic Hubbard Auto Supply Car Show on Main Street and great brews will be served in two beer/soda gardens.
The chamber office is still accepting reservations from vendors. For information, call (510) 537-2424 or the website at www.hayward.org.
The event is the second in a series of three traditional Thursday night street parties, with "California Dreamin'" coming up August 15.
The street party series, in its 14th year, is made possible through partnership of the Hayward Chamber of Commerce, the City of Hayward, and the Downtown Business Improvement Area. The DBIA is a consortium of businesses that work together to make the downtown area an attractive destination for shopping, dining, entertainment, and the arts.
Corporate sponsors of the street party series include the Bay Area News Group, Buffalo Bills Brewery, PG&E, Kaiser Permanente, Wells Fargo Bank, Russell City Energy Center, Vic Hubbard Auto Supply, Integral Communities, and Horizon Beverage Service.
