DeltaFusion

DeltaFusion

Giant puppets are coming to Victory Park?  That may sound incredible but this is the fourth year that the amazing DeltaFusion Puppet Pageant is being performed in Stockton.

Cathie McClellan, Associate Professor of UOP’s Theatre Arts Department, got the idea for DeltaFusion from “In The Heart Of The Beast Puppet And Mask Theatre” in Minneapolis now celebrating their 40th Mayday Parade and Festival that DeltaFusion takes after.

DeltaFusion highlights a different theme every year.  In 2011, the Potato King and Tomato Queen were the stars.  “Meet Me At The River” was the theme for 2012 featuring trappers and beavers.  Last year, “The Strength Of Many” included some of the diversity of the area - Filipino, Sikh, and Italian and this year, “Weaving Tales With A Common Thread” tells the story of Maxine Hong Kingston’s family among others.

The Confucius Church/Chinese Benevolent Association, with partial funding from the Stockton Arts Commission, created the Red Dragon Youth Theater which culminates with a performance of "The Amazing Adventures of the Marvelous Monkey King" taking place this Saturday, June 21st at 1pm in the newly refurbished Confucius Church annex called Colliver Hall accessible through the Confucius Church located at 212 E. Lafayette Street.  Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for students and 3 and under are free. 

The play, written by Elizabeth Wong and directed by Val Lee Acoba combines old and new - Chinese Opera and hip-hop music.  The impish Monkey King, after much dancing, battles and heroics triumphs over his adversaries learning about leadership, responsibility, and forgiveness.

Another SMART Project

Another SMART Project

On a weekly trip to the movies my husband and I parked on El Dorado and started crossing Weber when I noticed the utility box on the corner had a tape around it. I looked closer and saw that a design was being painted on it. Then I remembered the Utility Box Design Contest I had written about.

It seemed that everywhere I looked there was another decorated utility box – one across from French 25, another just above De Carli Plaza on El Dorado and one set in the landscaping of the B & M Building by Janet Leigh Plaza – four utility boxes in all.

Isleton Cajun & Blues Festival Moves To Delta Loop

Isleton Cajun & Blues Festival Moves To Delta Loop

      The Isleton Cajun & Blues Festival has moved to a new location for the 2014 event. Still in Isleton, technically, but not in the city limits anymore. They have moved to the Delta Loop which is just a few minutes away. The event location is at the B&W Resort Marina and Boat storage. The Isleton Chamber of Commerce resurrected the festival in 2011 after the "Isleton Crawdad Festival" was disbanded along with the old Chamber that promoted it for years.  

The business owners and residents of the delta loop have welcomed the festival with open arms and the "entire atmosphere and positive attitude is making a world of difference" said Jean Yakatobi, event foreperson.  With the marinas and docking availability the Loop is opening a whole new avenue for boaters and yachts to come from the bay area which will enhance the "family friendly"  direction the Chamber has achieved.
