Literacy, Family Day Offered

The Record’s Literacy and Book Fair – Family Day at the Park – is planned on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at University Park in Stockton. Family Day at the Park is free to the public. Family Day at the Park provides a full day of fun and educational activities for the entire community. Sponsorships are still available for businesses interested in supporting literacy through their participation in this event.

More than 80 businesses and community organizations will provide interactive projects that include making bookmarks, greeting cards, a miniature city, art projects, storytelling and recreational activities. Mascots, street entertainers, and entertainment by the Cesar Chavez Music Department, Sparkles and Ravioli the Clowns, are also festival favorites. The popular Friends of the Library Used Book Sale will once again offer more than 5,000 titles. In addition, published children’s authors and illustrators will preside over The Friends of the Library King Author’s Court – telling stories, teaching, signing books and answering questions. A mascot parade, led by the Cesar Chavez Drum Corp will kick-off the activities at 9:30 a.m.

All attendees are invited to join in the fun by marching along with the mascots in the parade.

University Park is at California and Magnolia Streets in the Magnolia District of Central Stockton.
