#115 - Annual Summerfest
Here is Lynn Kissel of Livermore, driving his 1914 KisselKar 40 Touring Car. The car is advertising the upcoming Livermore Cultural Arts Council's 25th SOMMERFEST at the Barn. This is a family event , featuring Bavarian beer, sausage, strudel, music and dancing. All proceeds benefit the Livermore Valley School's Art programs. Riding with Lynn are Festmeisters Dorothy and Wolfgang Stoefel, Herb, Madeline and Grandson Garrett Newkirk.


#116 - Congressman John Garamendi

Here is our very own Congressman John Garamendi, California's former Lieutenant Governor and Insurance Commissioner.  He is a life long rancher and certainly knows how to ride that horse. The horse he is riding is provided by Hoofprints on the Heart Adaptive Riding Center. Located on the historic Hagemann Ranch in central Livermore, Hoofprints on the Heart offers individualized therapeutic riding programs to individuals with special needs of all ages.

#118 - Oakland Black Cowboy Association

The Oakland Black Cowboy Association returns to our parade each year to help celebrate our Rodeo weekend. This Non-profit group's goal is to educate the public about the role African Americans played in building and settling the old west. The group shares the little known histories of the Black Cowboy, which, according to some historians, made up as much as 25% of Cowboys in the west after the Civil War.
