Richmond neighbors will celebrate Sunday at Solano Playlot

Solano Playlot, the small park in the North and East neighborhood that was recently refurbished because of community involvement and activism, is holding its Fall Festival on Sunday.
Here’s the announcement from community group Solano PLAY:

Solano Playlot Friends,

On Sunday from 2-4pm, the Solano Playlot once again will be overflowing with laughter, excitement and a little bit of holiday spookiness. Don’t miss the 3rd Annual Solano Playlot Fall Festival, which will be the first big celebration in our new park.

Here’s a quick run down of the major attractions. For adults, we’ll have a cafe and bake sale, raffle and lots of community. With a little luck, you could win:

a YEAR’s supply of bread from Semifreddis
Catahoula coffee
Restaurant gift certificates to Hotel Mac, Salute E Vita, The Baltic, Huong Tra, SaWadDee, Up and Under, and Pup Hut among others

El Cerrito Natural Grocery gift certificates

Trader Joe’s gift basket
Free oil changes

For kids, we’ll have a costume parade, free goody bags, a jumpy house, craft table, visit from fire truck and police car, temporary tattoo station, hopefully face painting, and so much fun.

If you can spare an hour to help us set up, please reply. We can always use help!

We should have beautiful weather, but in case of rain, the event will be held at Noah’s Ark Preschool at 555 37th Street.

ALSO, on Saturday from 1-3pm, don’t miss the Richmond Art Center’s Skeleton Fest. At this free community event, you can create scary masks, movable skeletons, sugar skulls, and more. Bring a T-shirt to screen and a treat to share. All ages welcome! The RAC is located at 2540 Barrett Ave. in Richmond.

See you Sunday!
