From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. today, head over to Point Richmond and look for the red dots.

The dots are part of the very first Point to Point Richmond event, which is hoped to be a monthly affair where merchants and organizations displaying a large red dot on their buildings host some kind of fun activity such as an art exhibit, musical performance or literary reading.

Read more about how the event came to be in this Richmond Standard article. Articles also appeared this week in the East Bay Express and West County Times. For more information about how to become involved, or for a list of today’s activities, visit the Point to Point Richmond website.

Below are a couple of images showing what you can expect to see this afternoon:
