Local Love: Five Favorite Fame by Frame Photos
The submissions are rolling in for Local Love – Fame by Frame, a San Mateo photo contest designed to showcase what you love about life here at Bay Meadows and beyond. The casting call is wide open and the Grand Prize of $500 will be awarded in 2016, as guests are invited to cast a live vote for their favorite image at the Photo Exhibit Event!
Everyone is welcome to participate and show some local pride for the city we call “home”. Here’s How. Spotlight local events, send a shout out to your favorite chefs or shopkeepers, showcase our hometown public art, places you play, and your favorite outdoor destinations. Here are just a few of our favorites so far. Take a look at a larger sampling in our Facebook album.
What a difference a year makes! Residents welcomed summer with open arms, excited for the many parks and ample open-space to play. You could feel the energy onsite change this year as our weekly events grew in attendance and several made their debut.
New residents have been planting roots in more ways than one! Persimmon Park Community Garden series, DIG IT (and especially self-grown produce) has been making a splash in photos…
Roots have even been known to “Pop-up” at Bay Meadows Park. Enter “Rooty” a giant carrot yarn bomb by local, San Mateo artists (Lorna and Jill Watt) at Knits for Life, pictured here photo-bombing Daisy the dog.
Residents got cozy in Landing Green Park and enjoyed a Bay Meadows’ “Cinema under the Stars”. This wee one may have missed Indiana Jones, but was dazzled by the late-night big screen during a night stroll.
Cat Lopez joined us at Paddock Park to launch “Zumba in the Park”. August proved so popular that we’re offering this free, fun class every Monday through September (except Sept 7 – Labor Day). Invite a friend on Facebook to join the event here.
