At Hula’s the Friday evening classic car show will be going on and Shorty’s offers TVs, pool tables and more.

Saturday, a classmate associated with the Escalon Golf Course has arranged a shotgun start scrambles golf tournament from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., followed by lunch and then a visit to the Escalon Historical Society Museum on Main Street, open on Saturdays. Other activities are scheduled to include tours of the local school campuses and a volleyball tournament.
