Don’t miss spectacular Arts Alive Festival April 29-30

The City of Mission Viejo is gearing up for its spectacular Arts Alive Festival from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30 at the Oso Viejo Community Park on the Village Green and neighboring community center at 24932 Veterans Way.

With a “Lights, Camera, Action!” theme, this year's festival will feature a cornucopia of fun – arts and crafts, musical performances as well as amazing street paintings brought to life by incredible artists traveling to Mission Viejo from near and far. The two-day event includes an array of tasty fare – from hot dogs, hamburgers and authentic Mexican dishes to jambalaya, kettle corn, ice cream and cool beverages.

Festivalgoers can also tap their creative sides with fun activities and workshops for kids and adults alike. Admission is FREE.

A shuttle bus will be available from the Civic Center at 200 Civic Center from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days.

Along with a weekend full of activities, finalists of the Mission Viejo Film Composer Competition will be presented in nighttime concert with a live orchestra at 7 p.m. on Saturday inside the Norman P. Murray Center. The Newgate Chamber Orchestra will perform amazing local and international film scores with the accompanying films. With submissions from Orange County, New York, Italy and Switzerland, the competition will embrace talented composers and directors in an evening that will delight people of all ages. Tickets for this special concert are $10 and are available at http://mvfilmcompetition.com.

We go every year and I'm pretty sure we've seen several dogs each time. It's all outdoors.
