The City of Riverbank Parks and Recreation Department and the Friends of Jacob Myers Park present ‘Johnny Appleseed’ on Saturday, April 14 at 2 p.m. at the park. The performance originally scheduled for April 7 has been canceled due to rain. There is no fee to attend this event and interested guests should bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. Actors from the “Traveling Lantern Workshop” will entertain the audience with their performance of Johnny Appleseed.
The story is about John Chapman, an early American naturalist that travels the newly expanding nation learning from Native Americans, and spreading his growing knowledge to the pioneers. He plants both apple seeds and a love of nature wherever he goes. His lessons of environmental stewardship, conservation and sustainability are especially relevant to children today, as they learn to protect the beauty of nature around them.
Prior to the performance there will be a BBQ held at the Gazebo at 1 p.m. and tickets are available for purchase at the Recreation office, 6707 Third St., Riverbank.
