It’s going to be hot Wednesday; AccuWeather predicts temperatures topping 100 degrees. And Sticky Vikki & The Pinecones are just the band to take the afternoon a sizzling notch higher, playing rockabilly tunes from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the weekly Picnic in the Park celebration in Central Park. The park is at Third and C streets in downtown Davis.

“These superb musicians bring an original and witty approach to Americana, country and rockabilly music that guarantees a rollicking good time,” a market spokeswoman says.

The band will perform selections from lead singer Vikki Lee’s just-released CD, “Arrows & Bows.”

The Davis Farmers Market is full of seasonal produce, including apricots, cherries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, snap peas, bok choy, greens, lettuces, herbs, carrots and potatoes plus local free-range eggs, honey, olive oil, jams, dried fruit, nuts, flowers and garden starts.

The international food fair offers picnickers a wide array of dinner specialties, including “Pizza with a Purpose” from Caffé Italia to benefit the Davis Farm to School Connection; The Buckhorn; Ciocolat; Davis Creamery; El Mariachi; Fat Face; The Hotdogger; Kathmandu Kitchen; Monticello Bistro; Mustard Seed; Raja Indian Cuisine; Santa Fe Trading Co.; Steve’s Pizza and Thai Recipes.

Members of Soroptimist International of Davis will pour beer and wine, with proceeds benefiting the club’s local charities.

Children’s entertainment includes the bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face painting and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
