I Love Where I Live! - Join Me at "Day in The Shade"

I've mentioned before how our area seems to grow new celebrations and festivals on an annual basis - maybe that's one of the reasons we're so happy here? Seriously though, there is a lot to celebrate here on the Central Coast and Templeton's "Day in the Shade" Saturday, May 7th, from 9a.m. - 5 p.m., at the downtown community park is one of those events that quite simply, has something for everyone.

The event kicks off with Templeton's Farmers' Market at 9 a.m. - one of my favorite fresh markets held in the County. Vendors pull up to trucks to line the lovely city park, offering everything from organic meats grown locally in Templeton, to the olive oils, fruits, and flowers for which the area is known.

For "Day in the Shade" you'll find all sorts of children's activities, music by "funk:30", wine tasting from several local wineries, food vendors and a juried fine arts and crafts show with a wonderful collection of handcrafted art for viewing and sale. It's a great day for the family, where there's a little of something for everyone.

Psssssst!: Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8th, so if you haven't found mom's special gift yet, get on over to the park this Saturday. I promise you'll find just the right thing!
