I owe you all a long belated update on Sundown Cinema. As many of you know, last summer we lost our permission to use the parking lot that had been the home of Sundown Cinema for nine years running and we put together a plan to move the movie series to a nearby location. The spot that was highest on our list was the Orchard City Green, which is the courtyard area between Campbell’s City Hall and the Campbell Library.
Over the course of the past year, we’ve been in a back and forth discussion with the City of Campbell over the use of this space for Sundown Cinema. The conversation has been productive and we were making progress toward getting an agreement in place, but the process was taking longer than we expected and time was running out. It was getting to the point that by the time that we expected to have a proposal approved by the City Council, our lead time for making preparations would have been shorter than we were comfortable with considering the magnitude of the changes that we’re dealing with.
This means that we’ll again be without movies in Downtown Campbell this summer, but we haven’t given up. Our new plan is to have the terms that we were seeking for this year applied to next summer and get the proposal approved by the City Council by the end...more

When it comes to Downtown Campbell, I am in for a penny-in for a pound. I have been a patron of Downtown Campbell businesses and services since the 1980s and when I was compelled to open a boutique of my own, Downtown Campbell, with its unpretentious, small business, small town community vibe, was my first choice for location. So, in November of 2000, I jumped in with two feet, opened my first boutique location at The Courtyard, and never looked back.
Right away, I joined the Downtown Campbell Business Association and, working with other merchants, set out to revitalize our little Downtown, put it on the map and...more

The annual Bunnies and Bonnets Parade in Downtown Campbell is a family and community affair held on the day before Easter following the City of Campbell's annual Easter Egg Hunt. In past years, the parade has featured marching bands, baton dancers, classic cars, bagpipers, floats, dog clubs, and other assorted things of interest that make up the Campbell area community.
The parade is now approaching its 16th anniversary and we're seeking participants to help us make this year's parade the best one yet. If your group, club, or organization would like to march/participate in this year's parade on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 12pm, please download the 2014 Parade Application Form and return it by Friday, April 4, 2014.
Participation is free for the general community and $50 for commercial floats. The parade will not be judged and no prizes will be awarded. This is all just for fun!
