Santa Clara Cultural Commission Sponsors Free Concert in the Park Tomorrow at Central Park

By Robert Haugh

Throughout the summer on Fridays, the Santa Clara Cultural Commission sponsors free concerts for Mission City residents.

Tomorrow, the band Arena will provide musical entertainment for listening and dancing at the Central Park Pavilion starting at 6:30 p.m.

Residents are asked to bring a picnic dinner, blankets, and chairs. Food will be available on site for purchase.

Last Friday, the series kicked off with a concert at Live Oak Park featuring The Hitmen. There were a lot of people and a lot of dancing.

In attendance were Mayor Lisa Gillmor and Councilmember Kathy Watanabe.

Here’s a photo of them posing with Cultural Commission members Siddarth Sundaram, Debra von Huene and Candida Diaz(Chair).
