El Sobrante At It’s Best!
21st ANNUAL EL SOBRANTE STROLL
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014
A Bit of History -
Our first Stroll was held in 1993. It was the dream of a handful of local Chamber business people with the purpose in mind of helping to acquaint our community with the services available within our own local business districts. It was a giant step for our small Chamber to undertake, but it was a means of helping our home town small businesses survive in the wake of large shopping centers threatening our existence. It worked!! Our Stroll has now become a joint venture with many of our neighboring cities, growing from our first year with 1,000 strollers to 20,000 last year and we are determined to keep on Growing and Strolling!
Our theme this year is “HONORING OUR FIRST RESPONDERS”. Parade at 11:00 am and Stroll to 4:00 pm.
Five stages for Music, Food Courts, as well as local restaurants and businesses open for your pleasure, The Pedaler Bike Shop professional bike show, 200 Craft and Information booths, Childrens Playland, Classic Car Shows, Sheriff & Fire Department displays, Petting Zoo, demonstrations, schools, churches and organizations represented.
If this isn’t enough, enjoy the Parade at 11:00 am - bring your blankets and chairs and reserve your spot. Everyone loves a parade – something for everyone!
Our goal in presenting this annual event is to promote community awareness, not only for within our El Sobrante Valley, but that of our surrounding neighbors, and thus encourage the support of all of our local Business Districts.
The month of October will mark the beginning of the first phase of the General Plan for El Sobrante, with Appian Way as the second phase. New sidewalks, trees, bus stops, benches, new refuse containers, potted plants and more. It will be inconvenient for some but the County will make every effort to hold repairs to a minimum disruption. The end result will prove beneficial for all and will spark a spirit of pride and prosperity for our beautiful El Sobrante Valley Community.
Support your Community and help keep our vision alive.
Join Us - YOUR CHAMBER NEEDS YOU !!
