New Meetup: Founders Day Fandango in San Jose

Announcing a new Meetup for Walking thru the Valley of Heart's Delight & Hiking Around!

What: Founders Day Fandango in San Jose

When: July 26,[masked]:15 PM

Peralta Adobe and Fallon House Site
175 W St John St
San Jose, CA 95110

The descendants of Juan Bautista de Anza are right proud of their heritage and they love to share it with everybody! It's a great chance to learn some local and California history and enjoy live performances. It's also one of the VERY few times that the Peralta Adobe and Fallon House are open for tours. Every respectable member of this group needs to see where San Jose started and where the infamous Fallon lived.

To quote from the History San Jose website: An afternoon of fun, music, singing, dancing, and crafts from the late 1700s and early 1800s. Featuring performances by the Calicanto singers and Alta California dancers.

Children will have the opportunity to:

dress in costumes of the period
rope a bull
ride a horse across the swollen Colorado River
make a clay pot with Ruben Reyes
listen to stories by Juana Briones reenactor Olga Loya
make a clay roof tile
dip a candle
make an adobe brick
make tortillas
view displays of other Adobe reconstruction in the area.
