This festival is meant to be fun for the whole family, and it encourages stronger communities that know each other better. The schools and students of Oak Park have had many accomplishments and successes. This event recognizes the hard work of Oak Park students and teachers alike.
Vendors will be on hand to help the community recognize some organizations that can help them. Hot dogs will also be cooked for the celebrations, with help from community firefighters. So far, over 700 people are planning to attend.
As Oak Park grows and strengthens as a community, more and more opportunities for socialization appear.

Those who want to attend should come to McClatchy Park, on 3500 5th Avenue in Sacramento. The event will be on Saturday, April 14th, from 12:00pm-3:00pm.
