The First time I heard about Park Jam was a few years ago, when local musician Jah Polo and his band Jah Fellowship had decided to buy my bus (which is another story all on its own!). The whole idea is once a month (usually the first Sunday) everyone gets together at Cesar Chavez Park in Downtown Long Beach and brings stuff to share for a party in the park. Its all really about unity and good vibes.
Collective I, the "glue" for the event, says "Through unity, love and… Continue

CHOC Walk is coming up! I’m so so SO excited! I had a great time walking last time, and I know I’ll have a great time this year!
For those who don’t know, CHOC Walk In The Park takes place at the Disneyland Resort. You walk around the parks and Downtown Disney, and Disney characters line the path the cheer you on. It’s such a great event for all ages.
Not only that, this is the first big Mikk’s Kid Krusaders family event, so this is definitely a big deal.
