Top Five Things to Do in May

Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, pick cherries at a local farm, catch an A’s game, explore the Galindo Home -- and have a good laugh. There's lots going on in and around Concord this month:

1. Savor Some Asian Flavor

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, show some love for Asian culture in our community at any of Concord’s authentic, family-run eateries. Whether you crave Korean, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Vietnamese or Thai, you won’t have to travel far to find your fix.
