Truth Thursdays Returns to the San Leandro Tech Campus on May 24th
On Thursday, May 24, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. the San Leandro Improvement Association (SLIA) will launch the second annual season of the “Truth Thursdays” monthly community food truck event. The event will again occur every fourth Thursday of the month at the San Leandro Tech Campus (1600 Alvarado St) in the plaza surrounding the 55-foot tall Truth is Beauty statue. This event will feature Off The Grid Markets food trucks, beer from San Leandro breweries 21st Amendment, Cleophus Quealy, and Drake’s, as well as wine, recreational games and live entertainment. Co-hosted by Westlake Urban and OSIsoft, the event will be free to the public. Free parking is available at the Tech Campus Parking Garage (enter from Parrott Street & San Leandro Blvd).
With the help of Artful Steps program, SLIA has also been busy adorning three large planters in Downtown San Leandro with colorful mosaics, depicting moments in San Leandro history from the Ohlone times to present day. There are nine planters remaining in the Downtown area, and SLIA invites local stakeholders and businesses to sponsor their beautification in the same fashion.

Future “Truth Thursdays” events will be held on June 28, July 26, and August 23 and will have rotating food trucks and live music at each event, so attendees can be sure to experience something different every month. Attendees are encouraged to ride BART to the event, or park in the BART parking lots.
Come to enjoy a great summer evening in Downtown San Leandro!
