Livermore Airport Open House Postponed Until 2015

2013 Livermore Airport Open House

Aerial demonstration from the 2013 Livermore Airport Open House

Normally the first Saturday in October is the annual Livermore Airport Open House. It’s a fun event to see some really cool aircraft, listen to some good music, and have some great food. It’s really a great event for the family. Best of all – it’s FREE!

Unfortunately the 2014 Airport Open House has been postponed until next year, October 3rd, 2015.

The airport is currently undergoing several construction projects that would impact the event, so they decided to cancel this year’s event.

However next year however will be a big deal as the Livermore Airport turns 50!

There’s Baseball Fever in Livermore

Little League Intermediate World Series Parade 2014

2014 Little League Intermediate World Series Parade in Livermore, CA

Young baseball players from around the world marched their way down First Street today to kick off the 2014 Little League Intermediate World Series.

I grabbed my camera, headed downtown, and took a few snapshots of the action. Check out the photo gallery to see all the teams below.

Games start Tuesday, 7/29 at 9am and play everyday until the championship game on Monday 8/4 at 4pm. For more information and a complete schedule, visit IntermediateWorldSeries.org

While you can watch the games live online at GranadaMatadors.org, it’s best to grab your lawn chair and head over to Max Baer Park on Murdell Lane just off Concannon Boulevard. Last year was exciting and yes, wait for it, fresh kettle corn was available.

Who’s playing and where are all the teams from you ask? They are…

I’ve linked to their hometown Wikipedia page so you can learn a little bit about where they are from. If you see the players around town, be sure and give them that awesome Livermore welcome!

Baseball rocks!
