Celebrate Fall in Tiburon with Blackie's Hay Day
September 26, 2012Posted by pamela |
Bring your family to come celebrate fall this Saturday, September 29, from 10 am to 3 pm at Blackie's Hay Day. This annual fundraiser is reminiscent of an old-fashioned country fair and helps raise money for children's and youth programs at the Belvedere-Tiburon Library.
Blackie's Hay Day takes place, naturally, at Blackie's Pasture off Tiburon Boulevard near Trestle Glen. Blackie's Pasture is named after Blackie, a swaybacked horse who stood in the pasture for nearly 30 years and became a Tiburon mascot, after stints in the rodeo and the US cavalry. The family fun on Blackie's Hay Day will include pony rides, a petting zoo, a rock climbing wall, jumpies, face painting, a tot hay ride, and more. The event will also include live musical entertainment, including local favorite Dream Circle with Tim Cain.
Admission to Blackie's Hay Day is $10 per person, with children under two free. Activity tickets and bracelets are available. Vendors will be on hand to sell delicious food and drink, too. Because Blackie's Hay Day is so popular and parking at Blackie's Pasture is limited, event parking is available on streets around the area, including Greenwood Beach Road and Avenida Miraflores.
