Oakland: Redwood Regional Park in Oakland will be the venue for all kinds of different artistic expressions during an Art in Nature Festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. For a mile along the park’s Stream Trail, there will be 12 theme areas featuring music, dance, sculpture, painting, martial arts and other creative expressions.
