Sing Along at Mulberry Park

I am planning to make this a regular event. Join us for a sing along at Mulberry park every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. And the 5th Tuesday in the case of October!

Our next sing along will be September 17th at 9:30am for a free sing-along at Mulberry Park in San Marcos (751 Mulberry Drive, which is north of Mission Ave a few blocks).  There will be a parachute for our opening song, song sheets, guitar accompaniment, and even a free instrument craft for the kids. This event is geared towards preschool age children but all ages are welcome. We will meet in the shade under the big tree between the play grounds. There is a spray ground at this park, too, so come prepared!

If I need to cancel for any reason, I will post it here, so check this blog before you head over.

Summer Concert Series and More!

The amazing thing about San Diego County is how many awesome free summer concert series there are! Nearly every community has a summer concert series. I just added at least 18 to the calendar. Most have already started, or start in July and run through mid-August or September.  Pretty much every Thursday - Sunday for the next month or two, there will be a free outdoor concert in San Diego County.  And Balboa Park has free concerts every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On top of their free Organ Pavillian concerts on Sundays and Mondays.

I have also added some other fun free ongoing summer events.  For car enthusiasts, there is Cruisin' Grand in Escondido, Back to the 50s Car Show in La Mesa, Class Car Nights in Encinitas. And Belmont Park has a fun kid series every Thursday and Friday featuring different activities and events for kids.

Check out our calendar to find an event near you!
