Will the Steel Drum band still be playing at 4:00? There was no mention of it in this post?
What a wonderful and so well "designed" initiative! This is what this country has unique about it: people getting together to support and celebrate each other. we need all our colors! Will be there with purple hair!!!
Our first opportunity to see a concert in the park since we moved here 3 years ago. What a great feature to have so many handicapped parking areas........That made it easy for us to attend and not have to try and walk long distance. The Pacific orchestra was awesome, and the audio company did an outstanding job of audio on the orchestra!!!! We brought friends from Chino Hills and we all had a wonderful evening!!!! Thanks to Mission Viejo, our new home!!!!!
