Great brews will be served in the Buffalo Bills' beer, wine and soda garden between Bank of the West and Bijou Restaurant. Fun N' Games will provide bounce houses and carnival fun on the B Street block between Mission Boulevard and Watkins Street.
“It says a lot about Hayward that our participants look at the street parties as a family reunion,” said Kim Huggett, president of the Hayward Chamber of Commerce. “These are events that not only are family-friendly, but the coolness factor is there, too.”
The chamber office is still accepting reservations from vendors and exhibitors, but the cut-off to register is near. For information, call Susan at (510) 537-2424.
The street party series is made possible through a partnership of the Downtown Business Improvement Area, the City of Hayward and the Hayward Chamber of Commerce. Major sponsors of the street party series include Buffalo Bills Brewery, PG&E, Kaiser Permanente, Wells Fargo Bank, and Calpine’s Russell City Energy Center.

Winners of the first-ever City of Hayward 3-D Design Challenge were announced on Thursday, June 16, at the Innovators Showcase at the Hayward Area Historical Society. The event marked the culmination of a months-long partnership between the City of Hayward, the Hayward Chamber of Commerce, Hayward Unified School District and such innovative businesses as Type A Machines and Impax Laboratories.
At the start of the school year, students at Brenkwitz and Tennyson High Schools in Hayward were given the challenge of designing a 3-D printed innovation award that could be given to local businesses recognizing their contribution to innovating businesses products and practices. Thirty students accepted the challenge and after touring the Hayward Area Historical Society Museum for a better understanding of Hayward’s innovative roots, instruction then moved to the classroom for hands-on 3-D design training from representatives from San Leandro-based Type A Machines. Students were exposed to 3-D modeling, graphic design, spatial analysis, and utilization of cutting edge 3-D printers.
