There will be a family-friendly Fourth of July celebration Wednesday in Woodbridge.

Spencer Dayton, a tenth grade student at Lodi High School, is holding the Woodbridge Parade and Party at the Park to bring people in the community together.

“There's people who don't really like to party, party but they still want to hang out on the Fourth of July,” Dayton said.

From 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, people will be able to listen to music from local bands, check out a variety of arts and crafts vendors and enjoy other fun activities, like water games and face painting. People can bring food to grill or buy barbecue from local nonprofits.

The event will be at Woodbridge Community Park, which is near the roundabout on Woodhaven.

There will also be an area where kids can decorate their bikes and wagons, so they can partipate in a foot, bike, and wagon parade.

Mary Avanti, Woodbridge Municipal Advisory Council chairwoman, said she is proud to watch a private citizen take action to put together a fun community event.

“He’s a pretty amazing, independent young man who wants to do something for his community and do something patriotic on the Fourth of July,” Avanti said.

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?
