The city of Lodi will once again offer “Take It to the Park,” a free arts, crafts and outdoor games program, on weekdays during the summer.

The program at Hutchins Street Square’s West Park is unstructured, and kids and their parents, grandparents or caregivers can drop in for a variety of activities.

The camp will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting June 6 and will continue through July 15, with the exception of July 4 when there will be no camp.

The city received a grant to be able to pay for the camp for a second year, but organizers are still looking for donations of money or craft supplies, said Diane Amaral, program coordinator for the Division of Arts & Culture.

For more information, contact the Division of Arts and Culture office at 333-5511.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
