Hellyer County Park, Saturday, June 23
Festival operation hours:  11am to 4pm

FESTIVAL IN THE PARK is a health, safety, and recreation fair.  It educates,  informs, and inspires families from the from all over the county to take charge of their health, exercise, fitness, and living a healthier lifestyle.

This year's event includes a new theme, Healthy Environment, focusing on information about food safety, energy and water conservation, urban greening, solar energy, household hazardous waste, recycling, zero waste, pest management, sustainable landscaping and pollution prevention.

Lots of fun for the whole family, including free kayaking and stand-up-paddle boarding on the lake, wall climbing, jump houses, a food court, and lots of giveaways.

Santa Clara Conty ARES/RACES will be there in a demo / PR mode to explain ARES/ RACES,  demo the trailer, and if we can get some operators we could set up a GO-TO station and let people talk on the air.  It is Field Day so there should be plenty of traffic.  

We would like to have at least 2-3 County staff there plus another 2-4 field operators / rovers.  If  we get that many operators we could put a couple of field responders / rovers in the park to allow people to talk on HTs.  We could try to set up NVIS as well. 

The ADEC staff should be there by 0900 hours for set-up and test, and other operators by 1000 hours.  Since the event ends at 1600 hours we should be able to release most everyone by 1630 hours at the latest.

They expect 6-7000 people in the 6 hours. Lots to see and do. Here is the link with more info:
