Get ready for a June of fun in the sun as music, festivals and fairs begin to heat up the summer calendar.
All that fun includes the annual celebration of cars, sock hops and the early 1960s, Graffiti Summer. It’s a monthlong salute to George Lucas and his film homage to his teenage years in Modesto, “American Graffiti.”
Events kicked off Friday with a handful of fetes, including Patterson’s annual celebration of the apricot, which continues today and Sunday. Also on tap this weekend are the annual Pick and Gather Festival, John Muir Festival, Diggins Tent Town and Twain Harte A La Carte. Here’s a look at these events and others:
