Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will hold a rally in Santa Maria on Saturday as part of his swing through California before the June 7 primary.

The rally is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at Santa Maria High School’s Wilson Stadium, 901 S. Broadway in Santa Maria.

The free event will be sandwiched between Sanders’ 10 a.m. rally at Santa Barbara City College and a 7 p.m. rally at the Kern County Fairgrounds in Bakersfield.

Doors will open at Wilson Stadium at 10:30 a.m. For security reasons, the public is asked not to bring bags and to limit what is brought inside to small items such as keys and cell phones. Signs or banners on sticks, sharp objects, chairs and weapons will not be allowed through security, according to a campaign news release.

On-site parking is limited, but public bus lines 5 and 6 stop at the campus at Broadway and Morrison.
