A Note From the Publishers – June 2019
The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons has a special place in our hearts, we are so pleased to feature their 2019/2020 entertainment line-up on our cover. What an exciting and diverse group, there’s something for everyone from country singer Travis Tritt to “Jessie’s Girl” Rick Springfield and let’s not forget the Beach Boys, with lots of focus on family fun. Believe it or not I’m personally excited to see the Laser Spectacular featuring the music of Pink Floyd, an English rock band that broke through all barriers with their progressive and psychedelic music in the late 1960’s early 1970’s, I think to listen to their music while a laser show is in progress would be simply “spectacular”. Whatever your genre of music is, you will be sure to find it at the PAC, tickets go on sale in June so don’t forget to get yours – sounds like a great Father’s Day gift!
Which reminds me, don’t forget to check out our fabulous Dad’s & Grad’s gift guide, you will be sure to find something from one of our local businesses! See page 66.
In this issue, we continue with our 6th annual coverage of Old Town Newhall, featuring professionally written editorials on a select group of OTN family operated businesses. Main Street and OTN have become quite the party place with some of the finest restaurants and great ongoing entertainment. Santa Clarita Magazine has some major plans for OTN going forward, so stay tuned for more information.
There’s always something to do in Santa Clarita and the summer months are just brimming over with fun activities. The City of Santa Clarita kick-off their Concerts in the Park in July with an incredible line-up of entertainers. Dust off your folding chairs and pick up a picnic from Wolf Creek Restaurant to join in the fun. See page 22 for all the facts.
In June our son, Alexander will be installed as Board President for the local non-profit Circle of Hope. We are so proud of him and wish him great success in this new position.
