Downey Symphony in the park


IMG_7232I finally made it to one of this summer's  Wednesday night "Concerts in the Park"! This week the Downey Sympony Orchestra performed. For a list of the musical line up, click here for the Downey Arts Coalition.

I like the whole experience of the concerts in the park. You can bring dinner, chairs, blankets, pets, friends...and it's free!

IMG_7221While trying to take pictures without blocking anyone's view, I placed myself in front of a tree. Not really thinking about it, I leaned back against the tree—bad idea. It didn't take long at all for me to figure out the tree was "alive" with ants. So, the orchestra was playing a Cuban mambo song, the audience was shouting "Mambo," and I was doing what I'm sure looked like some kind of interpretative dance as I was attempting to get ants off my arms, my back, and out of my hair.

  1. Kudos to whoever came up with the idea of concerts in the park. It's brilliant. I love eating outdoors. I love music outdoors. I love a gathering of people having a good time. What could be a more pleasant addition to our community?
