Spring Festival has something for everyone

Gary Linehan, The Union Democrat /

The City of Sonora will present its 19th annual Sonor Spring Festival from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday along Washington Street in historic downtown Sonora.

Admission is free.

Arts and crafts vendors will line Washington Street and merchants will hold prize drawings throughout the day.

Old time games, balloons, bug zoo and 4-H goat petting also will be featured, along with a hair and fashion show at the Sonora Opera Hall.

Revamp Recyclery will again host free recycled crafting in Coffill Park, including the return of the "Invasion of the Robots."

Live music will be provided by the Devil Mountain Boys, Kelly Flynn, Driftwood Dave, G.J. Katz and Koya. Additional attractions will include Gold Rush storyteller Hardluck Lin, the Tuolumne County Time Travelers, bounce house, face painting, motorcycle display, "Fun on Wheels" van, fire museum tours, Red Church tours and more.

In addition, the Tuolumne County Arts Alliance will take over "Fountain Park" with a day of art activities. Visitors can help create a chalk mural on the east wall of the parking lot, with spring flowers and a predrawn seasonal scene awaiting budding artists to add their own artistic expression.

The arts alliance will also have a table with newsletters and information on all of the classes now scheduled for the Kids Art Studies Academy on the historic Sonora Dome Campus at 251 Barretta St.

Signups will be taken for the new dance and art classes at KASA as well as summer "KASA Kamps" in June and July. The celebration will also include the creation of the new TCAA membership "paintbrush thermometer," which will fill up as new memberships are generated.

"Come join the fun as Sonora swings into spring," said Sheala Wilkinson, the city's special programs coordinator.
