Giveaways, prizes and sidewalk specials from Bon Air’s merchants including generous treat donations from Susie Cakes, Jamba Juice, Mollie Stone’s and Gott’s Roadside for children who play the “Passport game” while visiting booths. (Schedule of performances and community organization list provided below) KGHS will debut a newly acquired and important historical painting and provide a presentation about its history with noted local historians Dewey Livingston and Richard Torney. The painting by noted 19th century artist Joseph Lee is a rare and important view of central Marin County. Lee details the village of Ross Landing (what would later become Kentfield) with incredible accuracy. Ross Landing was the only town in the vicinity at that time.
The Marin Rose Society will exhibit inside space #110 (western end of the promenade) with a beautiful, fragrant exhibit of more than 41 categories of expertly grown roses on display to the public. Volunteers will assist children of all ages in creating a beautiful bouquet. After judging is complete, cut roses are available for purchase at $2/each, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the Center for Domestic Peace.
When: Saturday, May 20th, 11 am to 2 pm
Where: Just off Highway 101 on Sir Francis Drake Blvd, center-wide along the Bon Air promenade
