Be there or be square! Always a good time & I always run into someone I haven’t seen in at least a year or two.

This is a wonderful event. I went last year and the music, attendees, food, and booths were all top notch. I got a wonderful, bargain T-shirt with a blues guitar on the back that people compliment me on every time I wear it.

An excellent opportunity for folks to get together & enjoy an afternoon of food & music. It can also unite communities of different backgrounds.

Question/concern...what kind of security measures are in place to ensure the safety of guests & participants?

[Portion removed.] Yes, there is some kind of violence in East Palo Alto still but most towns have this kinda problem. San Jose has it. ANd I don't doubt that lot of rich white supremacists live in filthy rich Palo Alto, Stanford, Menlo Park, Belmont, Mountain View, BUrlingame etc..I see them all the time in my daily walks of life. They see me or any kind of colored person and they look scared and hold on to their purses tight.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
