Mayor Gutierrez, City Council & Kawhi Leonard Dedicate Iconic New Basketball Court
Kawhi Leonard has always paid tribute to his hometown of Moreno Valley, and last Saturday was his grandest gesture yet—an incredible new basketball court right at Weston Park.

Kawhi, Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez, the Moreno Valley City Council and hundreds of residents and fans were on hand to dedicate the Kawhi Leonard Basketball Court at Weston Park. The court, with its incredible artwork by renowned artist Mr. Brainwash, has already become a Moreno Valley icon.

Check out our exclusive video of the dedication ceremony, featuring interviews with Mayor Gutierrez and Kawhi's sister Miesha Slayton, here.
Celebrate Dia de los Muertos at the
Civic Center Amphitheater!
In this installment of Mayor's Minute, Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez talks about the annual Dia de los Muertos festival, which will be coming to our Civic Center Amphitheater on Friday, October 29.

Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a time-honored tradition celebrated in Mexico and the United States, where dearly departed loved ones are celebrated with music, food, dancing and the building of ofrendas, or altars that honor family and friends who have recently passed on.

This year's celebration will feature food vendors, craft tables, ballet folklórico, and noted Selena tribute band Dreaming of You!

Mayor Gutierrez and the Moreno Valley City Council can't wait to celebrate with you!
