Tennyson All America Festival


The city that I lived in for most of my life, was educated in (from K through four-year degree) and enjoy had a little All America Festival literally down the street from my house. It was put on by the Hayward Area Recreation Department at Mt. Eden Park. I went down and even though it was small, it was really cool and I decided to show some love:

Mt.Eden Mansion 








Hayward Mayor Barbara Halliday thanking those who came


People dancing away and having fun


It was really cool to see something like this a) in my city as we are used to having to go other places or festivals like this and b) right down the street from my house. I hope it gets bigger and better over the years. I hope everybody has a wonderful and safe Fourth of July:

  2. This looks like loads of fun and the tie-dye apparel took me back to my afro and dashiki days. How cool to have a event like this so close to home. It's always a pleasure to have you at our party and I hope you're having a great week.

  7. Our Fourth was fairly quiet - we let off a few fireworks. We thankfully stayed safe. Looks like you had a great day at the Tennyson festival.

  8. Great pictures. Looks like a fun place. I found the statue very interesting. Is there a story behind it?

  9. But not too big, I've seen many fests and things ruined like that. I love the small town events the best, visited a few in the last two days. The knick knack photo is very cool, looks like it's over a pool.
