BERKELEY – Fans of all ages are invited to the second annual Golden Bear Day presented by Bug Zappers Pest Control where they can meet many of their favorite Cal student-athletes, take photos and get autographs. The event will take place from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 23 on Lisa and Douglas Goldman Plaza and on the concourse level of California Memorial Stadium. Admission is free.
More than 300 Golden Bears representing almost every one of Cal’s 30 intercollegiate athletic programs, including the entire Cal football team, will be present. In addition, Oski, the cheer and dance teams and the Rally Committee will be bringing their Golden Bear spirit to the afternoon. Special activities for kids include face painting, temporary tattoos and a photo station.
