Great concerts, bring your own picnic food and drinks or purchase onsite under the stars every Saturday from mid July to Labor Day weekend. Very reasonable prices.

This is definitely a place to visit - if you want to see what Old California was like. Check to see if one of their special events or evening concerts will be occurring while you're in the area. Fun! They also have inter-active hands-on displays...More
