Saturday, June 18th from noon to 4:00 PM there is the Art in the Park afternoon with the Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, which is a free event except for parking fees. On July 9th there is the Gourmet Hike and Silent Auction which sells out quickly.
July brings a couple of nearby Independence Day celebrations. Monte Rio celebrates on Saturday, July 2nd and Guerneville’s fireworks display is on Monday the 3rd of July. Who does not like fireworks? You can go to the events or watch them from the grounds at Creekside Inn
The Friday evening Occidental Farmers Market is open with a great selection of local produce, cheese, honey and crafts. It is hard to pass up the great food stands from Mexican and Indian fare to my favorite Gerard’s Paella and pizza made in a wood fired oven.
New this year: Papa Finch and two babies-barely visible just 2 eyes and 2 beaks.
