Family Fun Night Featuring the Banana Slug String Band to Be Held in Santa Maria

The City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department is proud to present “Family Fun Night” with special musical guest, the Banana Slug String Band, Friday, March 11, 2016, at the Abel Maldonado Community Youth Center.

The Slugs are based in Santa Cruz and have been together for over 30 years. They have a unique way of using music to teach children about everyday science principles. 

The “Dirt Made My Lunch” concert will include action-packed songs that help children find out how dirt is made and how it makes all our food. 

The Slugs will be singing with Mr. Dirt the puppet, doing the Roots, Stems, Leaves, Flowers, Fruits and Seeds Dance and “getting down” with decomposition.

This zany musical presentation is designed for the entire family. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the concert starts at 7 p.m. 

The Youth Center is located at 600 S. McClelland Street.

Questions may be directed to Adam White, Facility Specialist II, at 805.925.0951 x519.

Mark van de Kamp is the public information officer for the City of Santa Maria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
