Several area residents appear in the film as extras.

It will be all about “crazy creatures” at this month’s Family Friday at the Carnegie Arts Center.
The center will celebrate featured artist Joan Miró, a painter, sculptor and ceramicist “known for his fantastic imagination,” the center said in a news release. “We’ll get inspired by the strange and playful characters that appear in his work and use materials like clay, wire, yarn and beads to construct our own imaginary appeal.”
Family Friday will be from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Carnegie Arts Center, 250 N. Broadway. Admission and participation are free. For more information, call (209) 632-5761 or go to www.carnegieartsturlock.org.
California State University, Stanislaus, and the Stanislaus County Fair are working together on the 12th “Tastes of the Valley” event, which raises money for the school’s agriculture department and the fair.
The event, themed “Come Grow With Us,” will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 2 at the fairground.
Food will be provided by Hilmar Cheese as well as 15 other food vendors and restaurants, organizers said in a news release. The event will include 20 wineries and an assortment of craft breweries. Tickets to the event are being sold for $50. Proceeds will benefit the agricultural studies program at Stanislaus State and the Stanislaus County Friends of the Fair Foundation. Tickets to the event can be bought at www.stancofair.com or at the fairground office.
“Our goal for the Friends of the Fair Foundation is to promote agriculture education in Stanislaus County. The collaboration between the fair and the CSUS Ag Department helped us accomplish our goal,” fair CEO Chris Borovansky said in the release. “We were able to raise a significant amount of money for the Ag Department at CSUS.”
Organizers also are on the hunt for donations to an auction that evening. Anyone interested in donating can contact Sandra West at (209) 668-1333, ext. 303.
