Summer Concerts & Movies in the Park

kirstenbosch-botanical-gardens-1957706_640Summertime is filled with sunny days, swim days, long nights, barbecues, & vacations. You don’t have to look far to find some fun & free activities to do with your family this summer. Summer Movies and Concerts in the Park, offered by both Temecula & Murrieta.

In case you did not know, the city of Murrieta puts on Concerts in the Park for the month of July! How fun is that? I remember taking my children to these concerts and having such an amazing time. The concerts can also serve as a date night, for you and your partner. All around, they are a fantastic summer event. The concerts take place all around Murrieta at the local parks. Another perk to these concerts, you can bring your dog. If you have a well behaved & friendly dog, and your dog is leashed, feel free to bring them with you.

Better still, these events are FREE! How exciting is that! Make sure you bring blankets, snacks, and chairs to enjoy all the fun!

The first concert is on July 6th. The band that is performing is called Born on the Bayou. They will be playing from 6-8 pm, at the Mira Mosa Park, located at 29486 Calle Andras.

Another fun way that I was able to have summer fun with my kids was to take them to the Temecula Moonlight Movies in the park. My children loved watching movies, so to have this event so close to us, was a dream! The movies are played on Friday evenings at the Temeku Hills Park, located at 31367 La Serena Way, or Harveston Community Park, located at 28582 Harveston Drive. The movies begin at dusk, but they do have activities starting at 6 pm. Make sure you bring your blankets, chairs, jackets, snacks, family, and friends.

The movies and dates they are being shown are:

*July 12th: The Grinch, playing at the Temeku Hills park

*July 19th: UP, playing at Harveston Community Park

*July 26th: Ralph Wrecks the Internet, playing at Harveston Community Park
