Hello, 510 families! Anyone else enjoying the longer days? We’ve been talking neighborhood walks after dinner and eating al fresco when possible. My family’s vibe just feels better with all the fresh air. Enjoy this week’s highlights- there’s something for everyone! Stay safe, stay strong, stay healthy.

Things to do in the East Bay with kids this week

  • Embark on a hybrid in-person and virtual event Black Culture Treasure Hunt in Oakland. This scavenger hunt gives clues both in-person and on a cell phone related to Black culture landmarks, art installations, and locally-owned businesses.
  • Meet Torrey Maldonado and listen to a reading of “What Lane?”, that discusses friendship, race, school and city life, as part of SFPL’s Black History Month celebration.
  • Join the JCC’s community wide virtual Purim party & costume contest.
  • Join Habitot’s interactive, free virtual “Show and Tell” for 2-5 year olds to make friends and share a favorite thing.
  • In collaboration with Golden State Warriors, Black Joy Parade presents a free, virtual day of health and movement with free classes led by more than a dozen Black experts across meditation, yoga, dance, capoeira and more.
  • Lift up some rocks after the rain and join StopWaste.Org for a worm composting workshop. Worm composting can be a fun activity for children and gardeners in small spaces, apartment dwellers, and families without access to a large outdoor garden space.
  • Laugh in Fool La La: Shelter in Play’s virtual comedy show and juggling workshop for all ages. 10% of the proceeds from all shows will be donated to the Alameda County Community Food Bank.



COVID-19 Coronavirus note: Alameda County and surrounding counties are in a stay home order. Stay home when you can. Please keep physical distance from those not in your party and wear face-covering masks.
