[ARCHIVED] Recreation Expo & Open House Returns February 4

Get an inside look at the Town of Danville Recreation, Arts, & Community Services classes and programs at the 13th annual Recreation Expo & Open House on Saturday, February 4.  The event will take place across three Town centers between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., presenting a variety of activities happening this spring and summer as well as programs offered daily.   

The Recreation Expo & Open House aligns with the distribution of the spring activity guide, available January 25, which includes information on both spring programs and summer camps. With many parents already looking ahead to spring and summer break, a variety of contract class instructors and Town staff will showcase upcoming camps and classes. Instructors will be on hand to answer questions and help the community learn more about the programs offered, such as swim lessons, summer day camps, and youth, adult and senior activities in areas such as art, cooking, fitness, foreign languages and more.  

To provide the community with a better overview of all programs, the event will be spread among three locations, with different activities at each site:  

Danville Community Center, 420 Front Street 

Village Theatre & Art Gallery, 233 Front Street 

Danville Senior Center at the Veterans Memorial Building, 115 E. Prospect Avenue 

Through visiting all three sites, visitors will get an opportunity to participate in a few popular activities, including Arts & Rec on the Go at the Danville Community Center; trivia and artwork displays at the Village Theatre & Art Gallery; and bingo at the Danville Senior Center.  

Activities for all ages and interests will be covered over the three sites, which are within less than 5 minutes walking distance. Attendees are encouraged to start at the Danville Senior Center, then walk to the Village Theatre & Art Gallery, then along to the Community Center.  

The theme for this year’s event is Willy Wonka, and guests will have the opportunity to get a “Golden Ticket” to register early for spring classes and summer camps. The Recreation, Arts & Community Services mascot, Auggie the Acorn, will be at the event, and is hosting a Willy Wonka-style scavenger hunt, looking for Wonka characters in each building. Guests who complete the scavenger hunt can collect your Golden Ticket and be entered into a chance to win raffle prizes. 

Spring Activity Guides and Summer Camps brochures will be mailed to Danville, Alamo and Diablo residents beginning January 25, and available online atwww.danville.ca.gov/activityguide. Registration for spring programs, summer camps and aquatics begins on February 14. Open registration for all other spring programs will begin on February 21. To prepare for registration, please update your registration account at www.danville.ca.gov/recguide.
