• Concert in the Park September 2017

What do you get when you mix great music with family and friends, a Rotary Club beer garden and an unexpected soupçon of rain?
There were people dancing in front of the stage during the whole show, but nothing like the final half hour. Countless people were up there, movin' to the groove.
You get one helluva good time!

This concert in the park had nearly 300 people attending, and though there was a short rain delay that prompted the attendees to seek some shelter, or go to their cars to get umbrellas, I'd say this was one of the most enjoyable evenings that Marna O'Brien park has ever seen.
Rotary to the rescue. During the light, but steady, rain many people sought shelter.
At the midway point of the show, the band announced that this was their last gig. I guess that all good things have to come to an end, and this was Arena's finale. Great job fellas, and thanks for the two shows you played in Wildomar.

They didn't disappoint as each of the 70's and 80's covers they played were spot on. I heard one person remark that they'd recently seen Styx at Pechanga and that Arena's versions of their songs were just as good as that of the legendary band.
The rain was coming down for at least 10 to 15 minutes. Most of the sky was clear, but that didn't prevent everything from getting wet, and almost having to see the concert cancelled. Electrical instruments don't often mix well with water. 
This was the last concert in the park for 2017, but there will be another great park event in just a couple of weeks.
Don't miss this fun event.
Astronomy Night hosted by local astronomy buff John Garrett. Be sure to come out to Marna O'Brien park for that one on Saturday, September 23rd.
A look at the new parks event sign the city recently had made.
To better keep up with park events I'd refer you to the city's facebook page, but for some inexplicable reason, they still don't have one. 

Come on city fellers, I think it's time to join the other local municipalities in 2017 and bend a knee to the curly headed dilettante named Mark Zuckerberg.

By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer's best of weather And autumn's best of cheer.

Wildomar Rap loves the hot weather, but is ready for cool Autumn and a long cold Winter after that.
