Picnic Day 2007 is this year's Picnic Day celebration with the motto "Making OUR Mark"1. As usual, there will be the 150+ exhibits and special events all over campus, the parade, Picnic Day Battle of the Bands, a sledding hill with Ski Demonstrations, Davis Dance Revolution, and so much more! This year, we are also hosting a non-profit faire at Olson Lawn and we are hoping to showcase the charities and nonprofits in the Yolo/Sacramento area.

2007-04-10 20:42:08   So, at the moment, weather.com is predicting showers for this Saturday... —PaulAmnuaypayoat

2007-04-12 20:39:49   Weather.com is now predicting rain all day, with a 90% chance of precipitation. Looks like we might get a rainout like happened a few years ago. —AlexPomeranz

* Weather.com is quite unreliable for this area, in my experience. It has Woodland right now at 40% chance of showers for this afternoon (full of blazing sunshine) and 60% chance of showers tomorrow.

2007-04-13 08:35:34   Better buy your umbrellas now, if you don't have one. When it poured in 2003, I wasn't prepared and wandered around campus and downtown for hours in the rain. Most stores sold out of their umbrellas, so I had to pay a *lot* of money for one at GottschalksElleWeber

2007-04-13 09:42:52   have faith young padawans. The sprit of picnic day will clear the skies and the sun will come out yet! Or we'll get wet. —TomAbeles

2007-04-14 11:12:04   It's raining now... not worth it to go out as I've missed the parade already. —TusharRawat

2007-04-14 16:55:29   Are there any official stats of what percentage of picnic days get rained out? 3 out of the past 5 years doesn't seem very good... —AaGg

2007-04-14 17:04:13   I didn't take photos from the float this year due to the rain, but I saw a lot of cameras in the crowd. There was a delay in the parade, does anyone know what caused it? —JasonAller

2007-04-14 17:05:56   2003 was completely rained out, pretty much like today. '04 rained, but it wasn't that bad, just a drizzle on and off. They didn't cancel everything outdoor in 2004, a lot of bands still played outside or in those covered trailor stages, iirc. —EdWins

2007-04-14 19:50:24   The delay toward the beginning of the parade was just because the walking groups were getting shuffled in from a location separate from where the floats started. Or at least that was my understanding from the limited vantage point inside the KDVS blimp gondola. —ElisaHough

2007-04-14 22:50:03   Nice work with the photos and everything you guys. I was cooped up in the bar all day so know I feel like I was really there —JarrettNoble

2007-04-15 11:54:03   so rainy, all that was left to do was drink indoors —mynameisbernice1

2007-04-15 17:22:17   I was driving the double deck in the parade for Unitrans and after I had the hook and ladder fire truck pulled in front of me from the walking groups location we still got stuck way down on California forever. I was just glad I was in a bus. The campus tours people(?) who were behind me got soaked for the most part, but they did get to hang out on my bus while we were delayed. —TracyPerkins

2007-04-15 20:56:08   I've always wondered why they have Picnic Day in April (April showers) which is prime rainy season around here. Seems like May would be a much better choice — after a lot of the rain, but before it get baking hot. —AlexPomeranz

2007-04-15 22:10:37   I heard the KDVS blimp escaped and the FAA was not pleased. Confirm/Deny? —ArlenAbraham
