This Weekend With Kids

There are a lot of fun things going on this weekend, but what I'm most looking forward to is visiting a farmer's market on Saturday morning and bringing some vegetables home to grill for dinner. The daytime heat can be pretty exhausting, don't you think? But it's so nice to sit outside as the sun starts to go down.

Literacy Day
In conjunction with First 5 San Joaquin, Victory In Praise church is hosting a literacy day with music, arts and crafts, storytelling, food and other activities. The event is free and will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the church, 2482 Country Club Blvd. in Stockton.

Free Admission Day at the Haggin
Visit the Haggin Museum for free from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. Check out Memories of WWII: Photographs from the Archives of the Associated Press (I've been meaning to!), and Fine Feathered Friends: Man and Birds of the Delta - the second exhibition in the museum's San Joaquin Roots series. 1201 N. Pershing Ave., in Stockton.

Jewish Food Festival
Temple Israel hosts its annual event featuring music, informational tours, and lots of great food (cheesecakes, corned beef, falafel, kugel...) Admission is free, but food must be purchased. 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday at Temple Israel, 5105 N. El Dorado Ave., in Stockton.

Kites Over Calaveras
I don't know that I've ever piloted a successful kite flight, but the idea still really appeals. The ninth-annual Kites Over Calaveras Festival runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at San Andreas Community Ball Park, 900 Park Drive in San Andreas. Kite-flying demonstrations and children's activities will be held throughout the day. There also will be a kite demolition derby. Ha!
