Summer is officially here and there are plenty of wonderful events to look forward to in the East Valley. Some of the most exciting shows will take place at North Hollywood Park as part of my NoHo Summer Nights event series. NoHo Summer nights is sponsored by my office, along with the Valley Cultural Center, the Department of Cultural Affairs, the Department of Recreation and Parks and the Art Institute of California—Hollywood.
Starting Saturday, July 1, NoHo Summer Nights will bring 10 weeks of concerts and movie screenings to the park at the corner of Magnolia and Tujunga on Saturday nights. And best of all, the events are free and family friendly.
You’ll enjoy an impressive lineup of live performances from popular bands, including the Iliana Rose Cuban Jazz Band, Ticket to Tide (America’s leading tribute to the Beatles), Center Stage Opera and many others. Bring a blanket and picnic to watch movies under the stars, including Titanic, Men in Black, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.
