There is something quite bewitched, or enchanted, if you prefer, in a soft summer twilight.
Even if the fireflies are not present, nor the gentle hum of distant critters, we feel more than a little transported by sitting under a sky lit by the last rays of the day’s sun, beams that seem so much sweeter than they are brief.
Add some solid entertainment, whether it’s cinematic or sound, and you’ve got a really fun night to look forward to.
This is exactly what the OC Parks team has planned for the Southern California community in the summer of 2021. For not one, but two in-person outdoor series return to the parks of the area, and fans of family movies and animated groups, too, will once again be able to enjoy outdoor entertainment.
the Sunset Cinema Series returns for a multi-night engagement on Friday June 18th. The first ? The whimsical, inventive and delicious dragon tale that kids of the 80s adore, “The NeverEnding Story”.
The series will take place on Friday nights this summer at various parks across the county, so always check the location in addition to the featured film.
“The NeverEnding Story” will be screened at Craig Regional Park, so be sure to fly your dragon towards Fullerton.
the Summer concert series begins June 24, with Flashback Heart Attack bringing the retro sounds to Craig Regional Park.
June 24 is indeed a Thursday, and all subsequent concerts will also take place on Thursday evening. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, a favorite owl from SoCal, is on August’s list, but you’ll want to check it out all artists now to see if a band you missed will play.
“Orange County and OC Parks are delighted to be able to once again present the summer concert and film series in person,” said Supervisor Andrew Do, Chairman of the Orange County Board of Directors.
“These concerts and film events provide a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages to come and enjoy entertainment in a beautiful outdoor setting. “
While every movie and gig is delightfully free, you’ll want to have cash if you want to buy a drink or a bite to eat. Both will be on sale at each event.
