Outside, families will thrill to performances by stellar group Cascada De Flores of Berkeley, and children’s Folklor and Aztec.
Fascinating informational booths will include the Redwood City Fire and Police departments, the Parks and Recreation Department, and many more. There will be lots of information about careers, after-school programs, sports, education, and health. Kids can get in on the prize drawing for 100 bicycles and get free goodies and healthy snacks.
Casa de La Cultura Quetzalcoatl is a non-profit organization created in 2005 by Paloma and Isabel Jiménez as a way to give back to the community and promote Latino heritage through traditional Aztec and Folkloric dances, to continue their roots, to encourage health and education in the community by emphasizing the need for children to be active and well informed. The organization helps parents to get involved and be a part of the dancing and the planning of traditional events allowing them to connect with youth, to share information on health, education and family unity.
The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and is the learning center of our community. More information about library events and services is available on the library’s home page at www.redwoodcity.org/library or by calling 780-7026.
