How should Oakland celebrate?

How do you think Oakland should celebrate its 175th anniversary?

Oakland’s anniversary event, dubbed Oakland Forever, will be held Oct. 10 and 11. It will be centered around Schenley Plaza and include  food, music, activities and access to cultural amenities. In general, Friday evening will be more focused on food, entertainment and socializing; Saturday will be geared toward families and more cultural, academic and additional entertainment activities.

The event will be designed to engage families, students, visitors and those who work in Oakland. Planning has commenced to identify the activities, but Oakland residents, employees, students, businesses and institutions are being surveyed about their preferences.
