Published 10:12 pm Tuesday, July 4, 2017

HAYWARD — The annual Hayward Days celebration will take place Saturday and Sunday in Hayward.

This year’s event will feature a car, bike and tractor show sponsored by Beck Auto and Transport. Nick’s Meats of Hayward, which will provide meat for grilling, will be a featured business at the events.

Mayor Mike Hansen said that there should be a better turnout at the events this year because it does not compete with other events like it has in years past.
