Happening Saturday at Oak Meadow: Flapjacks & Railroad Tracks

BJWRR-Flapjacks-Breakfast_W300H237-cThis Saturday, June 11, 2016,  the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad (which runs from Oak Meadow Park through part of Vasona Lake County Park in Los Gatos) is hosting a fun, affordable pancake breakfast from 8-10:15am, involving a hearty meal of flapjacks, sausage & a beverage plus the train and carousel will be open early. It’s a great fundraiser to support the small guage railroad, and kick off the summer schedule for both attractions.

For more information and details, please have a look at the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad website, and the event page.

Winding Down the Summer of 2010 in Los Gatos

August 20, 2010

Sunset (taken at La Jolla Aug 9, 2010)Many Los Gatos school children are either back in school or shortly will be back in the classroom.  Technically, summer lasts almost another month, but the unofficial end of the season usually coincides with the academic schedule or Labor Day rather than the actual calendar date.

It’s been a very cool summer, generally, one that didn’t require a lot of air conditioning for most of us. Many days it felt more like spring than summer.  My family and I just returned from a vacation to San Diego (which I highly recommend!), where we heard it was the coldest summer in 70 years.  Sounds like all of California had an extra mild season!

There’s still a little summer left to be enjoyed, though!  If you have worked and busied yourself and wondering if you totally missed the boat on summer fun, it’s time to take a break and sneak in some helpful R & R.

Here in town, you can enjoy several great “end of summer” events, several of which are no-cost:

  • There are 2 more afternoons of Music in the Park and one more Jazz in the Plazz. (Dates are Aug 22, 25 and 29 – check link above for details.) 
  • Visit Oak Meadow Park on Saturday, Aug 28th for the “End of Summer Night Ride” with a pasta dinner, carousel rides and a train ride at the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad. 
  • Labor Day plans?  Calvary Church of Los Gatos invites you to their Chill & Grill on Monday, Sept 6th from 11-3 (no admission fee – this sounds like a great event, please check via the link!). 
  • On September 11th there’s Claws for a Cause at C Hannegan’s.

Enjoy the end of summer!
