We have some wonderful prizes for you to win.  Below is further information for each of the events:

1. PISTA SA NAYON
Saturday June 3, 2017 8 AM TO 5 PM, COST: FREE
The Marina Green, 301 Mare Island Way, along the Vallejo Waterfront (just north of the Vallejo Ferry Building)

Pista sa Nayon is the highlight of the City of Vallejo’s June Philippine Cultural Month. The event celebrates the Philippine Independence Day, when Filipinos first proclaimed their independence from Spain after over 300 years of colonial rule. This annual event kicks off with a parade starting at Marin and Capitol streets in Vallejo, it travels through the Historic Vallejo Downtown and ends at the Marina Green along the Vallejo Waterfront. The event continues with non-stop music and entertainment on two stages for the rest of the afternoon. This is one of Vallejo’s largest FREE outdoor festivals. It draws crowds wanting to sample Philippine cuisine, soak up Filipino hospitality, and enjoy entertainment that connects all ages, cultures and ethnicities. Come and experience the Philippine Culture firsthand and bring your whole family.

2. VALLEJO JUNETEENTH
Saturday June 17, 2017, 11 AM TO 4 PM, COST: FREE
Vallejo City Park 425 Alabama St.

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, marks the anniversary for the abolition of slavery in Texas on June 19, 1865. The celebration marks that important date but also recognizes the positive contributions of African Americans here and across the United States. The event features music, arts & crafts, food and more from both local and regional artists and vendors. It’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the unique cultural diversity of Vallejo and it offers fun for all ages.

3. BENICIA TORCH LIGHT PARADE
Monday, July 3, 2017. 6:30 TO 9:30 PM, COST: FREE
First St, Benicia

This is Benicia’s 4th of July parade that marches down First Street and is full of dancers, music, classic cars and more – just on the 3rd of July. It’s a great event and many of the retailers and restaurants on Benicia’s historic First Street stay open late to allow for the crowds to do a little shopping and dining before they go home. The best seats get filled up quickly, so make sure to pick out your spot early.

4. VALLEJO 4TH OF JULY PARADE
Tuesday, July 4, 2017. 10 AM TO 12 PM, COST: FREE
Georgia St, Vallejo Downtown

It’s the 164th year for this historic 4th of July parade. All of the traditional parade fun like horses, bands, and floats, and some things that you can only see in Vallejo, such as their giant puppets or the Mad Hatter that marches in the parade and helps to kick off the 4th of July. It’s a wonderful way to build up an appetite for all of those 4th of July BBQ’s.
