San Leandro-based business Unpossible Cuts is back, offering unique laser-cut wood jewelry, as well as Little Feltworks who will be selling whimsical, hand-stitched felt ornaments and plushies. Food vendors include San Leandro favorite¬†Koolfi Creamery, who will bring its limited-edition cherry ice cream.
  • Music – the festival will be jamming all day with Eddie Rangel & Orquesta America, Big Blu Soul Revue, and ending with blues rock band Eddie 9V, who will be playing their new single – Saratoga!
