Members of Occupy Redlands on Wednesday updated their plan to celebrate the group's one-year birthday this Sunday with a Festival of Ideas in Ed Hales Park.
The activist group corrected an earlier list of participants expected at the event, which is scheduled 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday Oct. 14 in downtown Redlands.
Organizations expected to participate as of Oct. 10 include:
Citizens Action for Peace
Redlands Area Democratic Club
Redlands Good Neighbor Collation
Step by Step
An Occupy Redlands announcement earlier this week incorrectly listed some groups as participants, when in fact they had not yet responded to invitations.
"The public is invited to attend and get a chance to have a dialog with these various groups," Occupy Redlands spokesman Keith Jackson said. "Snacks will be served."
The following candidates for city, county, state and federal office have been invited:
California State Senate - Melissa O'Donnell and Bill Emmerson
California State Assembly - Mike Morrell and Russ Warner
Redlands City Council - Pete Aguilar, Mike Layne, Mike Saifie, Lane Schneider, Don Wallace and Pat Gilbreath
County Supervisor - James Ramos and Neil Derry
U.S. House of Representatives – Gary Miller and Bob Dutton
"The public is encouraged to engage with the candidates so that they can make informed choices this November at the ballot box," Jackson said.
Occupy Redlands is billed as "a group of citizens dedicated to improving the quality of life in our local community, the Inland Empire, America, and the World."
