And if that wasn't enough...we've got MORE to tell you about!

The morning of Saturday, August 12 will start off with the accordian harmonies of the duo, Gary Breitbard and Jena Rauti. You'll hear French and Italian country-dance music, and even Parisian Musette, Irish jigs and Balkan folk dance tunes.

Then at noon, families can enjoy Marty Atkinson's "homegrown style of storytelling, tasty accompaniment, acoustic guitar, and mandolin."

And then you can stick around to throw up your jazz hands for the Jazzinators! This East Bay Traditional Jazz Society Youth Jazz Band plays for the support of youth scholarships to fund young musicians in the East Bay area who want to study Dixieland jazz.

You can even get a tattoo this saturday! No... not a real one. Mom said no to that!You will be able to get airbrush tattoos at the 5th Annual Art in the Park event between noon and 4pm.
