The bi-annual Lodi Street Faire takes place Sunday, and tens of thousands of people are expected to converge on Downtown for the event.

The event will also include "Green Avenue," a section of the faire dedicated to alternative energy products and environmentally responsible living. Electric vehicles and other environmentally friendly products will be on display.

The Street Faire will also host a Cinco de Mayo-themed section, said Sandi Somers, events manager for the Lodi Chamber of Commerce.

It will feature live music, food and a talent competition. It is hosted by the Hispanic Business Committee of the Lodi Chamber of Commerce. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Elena Sanchez Memorial Scholarship fund of the Hispanic Business Committee.

The Street Faire runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is free to attend.

    and now back to topic! it's a shame it's so windy today but i will still be heading out to the street fair. It's nice to kind of have a friendly environment where you see faces you haven't seen in years.

    you forget farm labor, and may i say very minimal pay farm labor. You see yes there is a problem with immigration, but they way you approach it resembles that of elmer fud searching for bugs bunny.The problem is in the system, illegals come here for jobs! And we as the US supply it to them because they are cheap and if under the radar can not complain of wages since they are illegal. California is one of the top producers for not only our nation but the world. farmers need cheaper labor, they don't look for citizens, cause we ask for too much, so they call upon illegal immigrants. ever see a group sitting out in front of a store just waiting for a job opportunity? well guess what it's not safeway that hires them but individuals who drive by and have them work on private projects who may not provide money but at least food for the day. We stop this we stop the blood flow to the vein that travels to Mexico's border

    correction giovanina, Hispanic is known as not only a person who speaks a native language of Latin descent but as well as 2 : of, relating to, or being a person of Latin American descent living in the United States; especially : one of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican originAnd clearly my remark was to point out how absurd and boarder line racist edumacations post was.third, clearly the issue is illegal immigrants, yet the remark by edumacation simply refereed to the fact that clearly if there is an integrated system to the street fair that displayed Latin American activities that everyone should call the I.C.E.let alone her remarks of her clearly imitating Hispanics by using such words demonstrated by cartoon rats.. edumacation wrote on May 1, 2010 9:14 PM: "Andale' eh! YiiYiii !"however if she really knew her stuff she'd know that People of Mexican descent do not celebrate Cindo De Mayo as much as The US likes to "celebrate" it since it only marks the day they beat the French, not their actual independence day from the rule of Spain.

    Giovanina- If you are in the USA legally, you have nothing to worry about. Thats the law. Progressive liberals and communists refuse to complain about the cfact that most criminal aliens also break other laws. Look at the inmates of any prison! How many illegals pay income taxes? First, they need a Social Security Number which requires a birth certificate. Or they can buy a forged one on the street. We haven't even started and we already have FOUR felonies. Illegal entry, failure to pay taxes, making any income without reporting it whether they run a taco truck or a to landscape work. Add the driving with no license and insurance violations and we have a career criminal.

Next mistake, is referencing any group other than criminal aliens as that is what is referenced in the comment. Criminal meaning law breakers.Americans are no longer going to take the "reconquista talk" of Domestic Enemies anymore so get used to it. The Lodi Tea Party will be there too.

    great! then we can get the the issue we have with those pesty "native" americans right edumacation?!Pshh claiming to be here first, just cause they can't handle a few diseases!So i say we work in dis-sending order in which we originally over threw these so called "territories" from previous dwelling nations. So lets go ahead and start with Hispanics! I mean they deserve it if they didn't even see it coming after they gained their independence from Spain only to have their seat ripped right from under them not long after. So lets get them straggelers right edumacation! then we can eradicate those so called "reservations".

    Great! I already invited some friends who work for I.C.E. Maybe they will get lucky. The office will be manning telephones on Sunday. The official US government I.C.E. (La Migra) Report line for suspected illegals is: 1-866-DHS-2-ICE BTW They just arrested 596 "criminal aliens" (This is what ICE calls them) today! Good Job! Reminder Only three more days until the BIG celebration on Cinco De Mayo!Andale' eh! YiiYiii !

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?
