Though this section of the party is intended for the 12 and under audience, don't be surprised to see all ages taking in the entertainment and activities. Why? Well, we at the Express believe kid parties should totally rock just as much as adult parties (and more)!
Let's start with the stage, sponsored by BandWorks and Bay Area Girls Rock Camp, which will feature local kid bands like The Vat, Poison Apple Pie, and Room 19. Performances are by members of the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp. These kids were born with guitars in hand.
