Summer is finally here, which means it’s time to fill your calendar with a busy season of events sponsored by the Del Mar Foundation. Here’s a taste of what’s coming up, so that you don’t miss a thing:
Make sure not to miss a beat of our signature concert series, which kicks off with Sully and the Blue-Eyed Soul Band at Powerhouse Park. Concerts begin with Zel’s Opening Act at 6:00 p.m., followed by the main event at 7. We are especially grateful to our sponsors, without whom it would be impossible to stage these concerts: The Del Mar Plaza; Gelson’s Market (who, once again, will be offering picnic baskets for pick-up this year so that you can eat at the concert in style); the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club; Jake’s Del Mar; Poseidon Restaurant; Zel’s Del Mar; Marrokal Construction; LAZ Parking; Jelley Real Estate; and D’Arcy Capital. Come down early, grab a spot, and make sure to bring money for raffle tickets!
If you missed our showing of Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens a couple of weeks ago, make sure you don’t miss our next two features. We will be showing the animated hit Zootopia on Saturday, June 10, and then celebrate Independence Day with a showing of Captain America on Saturday, July 1. Bring a beach chair and a blanket down to the Shores Park (not Powerhouse Park), and join us at sunset for free popcorn and a great time under the stars, all compliments of the Foundation.
Bring the kids and the grandkids down to the Shores Park on Saturday, June 4, at 11:00 a.m., for our Brunch With The Band children’s concert series, featuring the ever-popular Hullabaloo. As with virtually all of our events, admission and refreshments are free, and a great time is guaranteed.
It’s never too early to start planning for our annual parade up and down Coast Boulevard. As in past years, we will feature members of the City Council, the Del Mar Fire Engine, and, of course, Uncle Sam. So start decorating your bicycles and join us on the 4th.
For the most current information on these and a multitude of other events and activities, follow us on Facebook (@DelMarFoundation) and Twitter (@DelMarFound), or go to our website (delmarfoundation.org). We look forward to seeing you soon – Don’t forget your sunscreen!
