Celebrate Kids and Families

Every American family has most likely experienced the friend, boss, restaurant, or other entity that has not welcomed their needs. But the free Cotati Kids Day on July 13 embraces little ones and their parents—indeed, this celebration is all about them. The day begins with a free pancake breakfast, 8–10 a.m., at the Church of the Oaks in Cotati. After festivalgoers have fueled up, they can either participate in or watch a parade at 10 a.m. Those who wish to march can line up at City Hall at 9 a.m. The parade will end in La Plaza Park in Cotati, where the festival will run 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Entertainment and activities will include live music, games, bounce houses, face-painting, food and merchant vendors, and booths offering information on local services for families. The annual Diaper Derby, in which crawling babies race to the finish line, will be at 12:15 p.m. For more information, see
