Saturday morning will be our Woodie 'Show 'n Shine' held again at Redwood High School, 1001 W. Main St., Visalia. We will start parking cars about 8 a.m. Immediately following the show,we will once again have our annual cruise, viewing some beautiful blossoms and ag country.
Saturday evening will be an optional group dinner . . . or you can opt to head out on your own and choose from scores of great eating establishments in Visalia.
Sunday morning we will have our traditional Goodbye Breakfast at the home of Liss & Ernie Crotty.
We have TWO host hotels this year - the Visalia Marriott and the Comfort Suites - both located in Central Downtown Visalia - and only a block away from each other. Neither of these hotels is "pet-friendly." If you are bringing a pet with you, we understand that the La Quinta Inn is the place to go. It is located at 5438 W. Cypress Ave., and can be reached at 559-739-9800. We currently do NOT have any special rates with them.
The Marriott (300 S. Court St.) continues to be a very nice hotel which we've utilized for several years. In addition to Marriott-quality facilities and service, they also offer free parking. Although you can certainly ask, our negotiated rate expired on 2/26. You can make reservations by calling: 1-800-798-6506 and referencing the Woodies in the Valley block.
The Comfort Suites (210 E. Acequia Ave.) provides very comfortable suites, and includes free covered parking as well as a free breakfast. Call them at 559-738-1700 and mention Woodies in the Valley. FRIDAY MORNING UPDATE - The Comfort Inn Suites is FULL, but they are offering the same rates at another of their properties - the Hampton Inn, just a little west of downtown - right off Hwy 198. Call the Comfort Inn number above, and just mention our show when registering.
Please check back at this website often for updates, which will start happening frequently as we get closer.
ONCE AGAIN, THIS EVENT IS FREE TO BOTH PARTICIPANTS AND TO THE PUBLIC.
SEE YOU THERE!
