Reyes Adobe Days Parade and Program
October 11, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The parade will travel from the northern most point of Reyes Adobe Road one mile to the festivities waiting at Reyes Adobe Park. Grab your seat anywhere along Reyes Adobe Road for an up close view at the spectacular entries!
From 11 a.m. – 4 p.m – RAD Children’s Activities: Kids will have the opportunity to experience adobe life through traditional hands on activities such as tortilla grinding, soap making, old fashioned laundry, and so much more. Children can also observe a blacksmith making horseshoes and other cool items or join a musical drum circle. Plus, kids can ride the Reyes Adobe Days train around the park, play with the exotic animals at the petting zoo, or perhaps ride a pony. All children’s activities are guaranteed to be fun and free of charge!!!
Each Reyes Adobe Days, we invite local artists and artisans to display their works on the grounds and in the park throughout the event. This year, we are expanding our traditional gallery in the barn of the historic grounds to include original artwork, glicees, and prints of artists selected to participate. The barn is transformed into a gift store that allows visitors to browse and shop works from local artists.
All work displayed during Reyes Adobe Days weekend will remain on display at the adobe throughout the weekend.
In addition to our gallery, we have a number of artisan booths throughout the grounds of the event. This includes jewelers, sculptors, potters, antique vendors, and a variety of hand-made items that are unique in their style and appeal.
The Art @ the Adobe exhibit is open for viewing and shopping during all open hours of the event. Take the time to stop in and enjoy this great atmosphere and one-of-a-kind shopping experience.
Live entertainment will fill the grounds throughout the weekend. Book signings will also be offered on the grounds throughout the weekend.
While enjoying all the fun at activities of Reyes Adobe Days, don’t forget to visit the home itself! Self-guided tours, with site docents providing information at various locations throughout the grounds allow visitors to explore our historic home and its legacies.
