My wife and I stopped by last weekend for the grand opening. It was very well attended, and I was surprised at the quality of the fireworks show. I'll definitely be in attendance next year.

Since the Kultrún World Music Festival (July 7-9) doesn't have its own thread, I thought I'd give this one a (long overdue!) bump.  Looks like they have put together a pretty ambitious program (plus a new food truck!).  Isabel Cisterna (Neruda Arts) deserves a lot of credit for her contributions to the local cultural scene.

This promises to be an interesting event.
