Get on the Bus!

Hi Fremont Fans – looking for something fun and educational for the family to do this weekend? Well you’re in luck – the ever popular Celebrate Fremont Heritage tours are rolling through this weekend! Tour guides Nydia Estrada and Al Minard will share their wealth of knowledge about Fremont’s five fabulous districts.

So what’s up for the next tour? This weekend the morning tour will feature Historic Niles where you’ll learn history behind the Essanay Studios, where Bronco Billy and Charlie Chaplin made films (way before there ever was a Hollywood). And how about the Historic Niles Canyon Railway? Learn more about it’s history and all that Niles has to offer!

In the afternoon, sightseers will explore Centerville –the district that is at the center of the roads crossing to the four points of the compass: Oakland to the north, San Jose to the south, Mission San Jose to the east, and the Bay landings or Embarcaderos to the west. Home of the historic Center Theater, Centerville Depot, Pioneer Cemetery, Bill Ball Plaza and much, much more – this district has a lot to discover.

Tickets are selling fast (how many Fremontians can you fit on a bus!?), so be sure to check out the Celebrate Fremont website (http://www.celebratefremont.org/) to learn more and snatch up those tickets!
