Late July and August are Rockin'

Wow! Hard to believe July's almost over and August is nearly here. The good news is Summertime events will continue to rock Claremont for weeks to come. Some events will be wrapping up soon, however, at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden -- Garden Groove concerts end on July 26 and the CA Butterly Pavilion closes for this season on Sunday July 29. Time flies....
Music, music, music is rockin' on Monday Nights thru Sept. 3 at Memorial Park and in the Claremont Village every Friday until October 26. Two free family fun events are being held at Shelton Park -- and National Night Out returns to Memorial Park on August 7. Check out more details below. There's never a dull moment! 
Stay Cool, Have Fun and Rock Out in So Cal.
