May and the color gray appear to go hand-in-hand in Del Mar but we’re not going to let some clouds get in the way of all the exciting activities the Del Mar Foundation has planned!
Our sunset movie series, Cinema By The Sea, starts off with a splash viewing the exciting science fiction film “The Meg” on the beach in front of the lifeguard tower on May 18th with a sunset of 7:42PM. For the young and young at heart, the “Incredibles 2” will be shown on May 31 (sunset is 7:50PM) followed by the worldwide cultural phenomenon “Back To The Future” on June 21 (sunset is 7:59PM). Both of these features will be shown at Powerhouse Park. Each feature will have free popcorn available on a first-come-first-served basis and be preceded by a PIXAR short so don’t be shy about bringing your little ones (in their pajamas!). It’s still a little chilly by the beach in May and June, so plan to dress in layers, and plan to bring chairs and blankets.
A favorite summer tradition in Del Mar is our Summer Twilight Concert series. We will be featuring four concerts, all on Tuesday evenings this summer: June 18, July 9, July 30 and August 20. We’re looking forward to a fun and festive lineup.
July will be a lively month for our village! Our Independence Day Decorated Bike Parade on July 4th down Coast Boulevard is always enjoyable. There will be live entertainment, treats for the crowd compliments of some of our generous sponsors and we might have a surprise or two in store! Stay tuned for an announcement soon about our special commemorative concert in honor of the City of Del Mar’s 60th Anniversary!
As always, we look forward to providing memory-making programming to enhance your summer!
