News-in-brief: César Chávez event is this Saturday

The city rescheduled the César Chávez Celebration from March 31 to April 7 due to weather. It will be at 11:30 a.m. in Central Park during the Farmers Market.

This free event is sponsored by the City of Davis through the Human Relations Commission. It will take place at the Rotary Stage at the north end of Central Park.

The event will feature music and singing, community group displays and other presentations.

March 31 is the anniversary of Chávez’s birthday. Chavez spoke at

rallies in Davis’ Central Park during the tomato growers’ strikes in the 1970s.
