MarchFourth! at the Downtown Fall Festival

MarchFourth returns to Redding for a Downtown Fall Festival!

Friday October 26th
at the California Street Labs Courtyard

MarchFourth is a joy-inducing force of entertainment. The colorful explosion of brassy funk, rock, and jazz is all about the groove. This larger-than-life group of musicians and acrobats tours the country year-round, bringing a spirit of celebration wherever they go. MarchFourth is, in a word, FUN!  This is a big-band show not to be missed.  Join us!

“From the first note to the last, the sound was pumping and the fun never stopped… It’s worth noting that there are serious musicians behind all the fun. It’s obvious these guys (and gals) have had lots of training and formal practice. Talented band geeks turned rebels.”   ~ USAToday

Two Wheels North, by Evelyn McDaniel Gibb

In 1909, Vic McDaniel and Ray Francisco, just out of high school, set out from Santa Rosa, California, on second-hand bikes, bound for the great Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle. Traveling on dusty roads, roads of logs, of planks, even of corn stalks, and often no roads at all, they pedaled, pushed, and walked a thousand miles north for 54 days. With excitement in their hearts and a good luck billiken in their bedroll, they started out with only $5.65 between them.  Camp was wherever, whenever the sun was gone; food was an occasional meal from a kindly farm wife and what they could fish, hunt, or glean…

Evelyn Gibb, daughter of one of the cyclists, has drawn on her father’s recollections to tell this incredible adventure in his voice.

BRINGING SMILES

On this day a stretch of the city is transformed into a car-free zone for Sunday enjoyment.

Family, friends and neighbors meet and experience the neighborhood in a new way.  Groups across the community come together to celebrate the Garden District neighborhood and complete-streets improvements that help local children walk and bicycle to school.

The stress-free streets created for this event allow area residents to comfortably walk and bicycle with family and friends and learn about places and neighborhood attractions previously unexplored.  This gives people a way to see their neighborhood from a new perspective.  Families enjoy a safe space to gather, play, ride a bike, dance and engage.  Some people will ride a bicycle for the first time. Others will discover they can hula.  All are inspired to get out and enjoy our beautiful local neighborhoods more often.

CELEBRATING SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL

We will celebrate the difference the complete street improvements have made to families in their daily lives.  The City of Redding, Shasta Safe Routes to School Program, and Sequoia School worked together to identify needed safety improvements and activities.

Learn how our children can be more active in their daily lives with safe crosswalks, traffic calming, protected bike lanes, Walking School Buses, Bike Trains, Crossing Guards, and more!

REDDING IS ON THE CUTTING EDGE.  MAKING CONNECTIONS, INSPIRING CHANGE.

Redding is one of the first cities in the nation to host open street events.  Shasta Living Streets has produced open street events in Redding for six years in collaboration with local agencies and businesses.  When we started we were one of 50 cities in the nation hosting these events to make connections and inspire change.  Now there are 133 cities in the nation with open street programs.

Last summer Anne Thomas was invited to present at the third International Open Street Summit.  The story of Redding’s ongoing program in a relatively small city that has inspired improvements for safe routes for biking and walking, was one of the most popular sessions at the conference.

COMMUNITY TOGETHER

To create this free public event, Shasta Living Streets and Shasta Safe Routes to School partner  to engage businesses and community groups from across the county to participate.

SEQUOIA MIDDLE SCHOOL

Sequoia Middle School serves students in grades 6 through 8 as well as our 4thand 5th grade music magnet program.  As a five-time California Distinguished School, Sequoia offers rigorous coursework, an award winning music program and competitive sports teams.  The 4th and 5th grade music magnet program showcases strong academics with an emphasis in all music disciplines.  For more information please call 225-0020 or visit the website at sequoia.reddingschools.net.

PUBLIC USE OF A PUBLIC STREET

This is an event where residents will be moving about in the neighborhood and on a street as they can do on any day, but in this case without automobiles on the road.

People will be freely enjoying the neighborhood without the stress of car traffic.  This greatly reduces risks that might normally exist on this roadway and allows people to walk, bicycle, skate and hula – freely and comfortably on a Sunday afternoon.

Safe Streets.  Rader Excavating is the professional team that puts together the traffic plan in cooperation with city officials, and works all day to manage traffic and keep participants safe.

THE MAIN ACTIVITY IS YOU!  THE PEOPLE-POWERED PARADE 

It’s not just about bikes – you can walk with friends, skate, roll or dance.  Throw a Frisbee.  Show off that special bicycle:  the lowrider cruiser, the cargo bike, the family bicycle train, or the fancy street bike.   Bring someone who does not ride often on city streets. Decorate your bike.   Enjoy the people watching.

The Film – Rising from Ashes 

Rising from Ashes is a remarkable documentary and a story of what happens when people care for each other and their community.

In 2006, professional cyclist Jacques “Jock” Boyer moved to Rwanda to help a group of struggling genocide survivors form a cycling organization. All of its members were young children during the genocide, and many were left orphaned. The film follows the cycling organization’s progression into a national team, and the emotional and psychological impacts the cycling team has on both its members and a nation still struggling with the aftermath of trauma.

Dan Cooper is a local Redding resident and Executive Producer of this award winning film. He co-founded Team Rwanda with Tom Ritchey and Jonathan Boyer.   risingfromashesthemovie.com

The bicycle advantage, it’s not about the bike.

We have an exciting opportunity to build great cities and towns in our region by making bicycling safe, convenient and fun.   This is not about thinking bikes are cool and its not about weekend exercise and recreation in our beautiful parks and open spaces.   Though those things are good too.

Making bicycling safe, convenient and fun for everyday transportation brings tremendous advantages – it allows families to be healthy and save money on transportation, makes more vibrant and connected communities, and supports our local businesses by helping them attract customers, retain talented staff and attract tourists.

Bicycling it turns out, is good for all of us whether we bicycle or not, because it’s good for local business and the strength of our community.

Bike and walk safely in Downtown Redding.

It’s not recreation, It’s life!
