Independence Day is nearly here, and the Danville area has a number of exciting events you can go to – whether it’s for live music, yummy food, a fun parade, or to watch the fireworks at night
Acclaimed world-wide, Father’s Day is celebrated in America on the third week of every June. On this very special occasion we recognize all father figures. The people from our past and present raising, inspiring and supporting us. Whether ever-present coaches or quietly leading by example, they are our own personal heroes, someone we might strive to impress, or maybe the best tickle monsters and storytellers alive.
We are grateful for all that you do! Living in Danville means you have probably shuttled kids to several of the great parks in our town. Perhaps, you’re the Father who consistently wakes at the crack of dawn to get your All Stars to their games? Family friendly Danville is a haven for sports fanatics, musical concerts, art events and markets.
It is probably no coincidence that your children live here amongst some the highest rated schools in the nation. Maybe you chose to settle in Danville to raise your family, because your own father endowed you with an appreciation for the vibrant lifestyle of our Bay Area community?
