|Radio Disney Takes Banana Jungle Stage|
Radio Disney will be hosting a variety of events at the Banana Festival this year. On Saturday, August 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. on the Banana Jungle Stage, Radio Disney will be playing music and organizing games for kids of all ages. Radio Disney will also be hosting an on-site radio show that will feature Banana Festival Bunch of Fun Passports station activities.
Radio Disney is a radio network based in Burbank, CA, that broadcasts music aimed for a young teenage audience. It is a youth targeted contemporary hit radio and subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company. It can be streamed online or on the radio network at KMKY 1310 for the Bay Area or KMKY 1470 for Northern California.
Banana Festival is all about fun, but did you know it also does good in our community? Proceeds of the Banana Festival support the Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum and Development Center, which provides programs and resources for more than 15,000 children and youth in the Greater Sacramento area. And many other community organizations participate in and benefit from Banana Festival as well, including B.E.S.T (Building Empowerment Skills Today) and Women’s Empowerment.
B.E.S.T and Women's Empowerment along with other non-profit organizations will serve samples of their special Banana Bread recipes to visitors who get to stroll down a tropical path full of delicious Banana Breads and taste all the samples.
After tasting all the delicious samples, festival goers can vote for the Banana Bread they like the best by putting money into the organization’s donation jar. The organizations get to keep all the money in their jars and festival goers get to taste lots of Banana Bread.
