Summer Nights

San Diego summer nights are my favorite. The weather is cool and balmy, the sunsets are vibrant and soothing, and the overall vibe throughout the city is tranquil and happy. It’s no wonder they call San Diego “America’s Finest City.”

One of the things I have fallen in love with this summer is Twlight in the Park and Balboa Park. Twilight in the Park is a summer concert series put on at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion every evening throughout the summer months. Different ensembles perform each night, and the atmosphere is relaxing and refreshing. We like to pack a picnic dinner to eat as we listen, and Cora loves being outside and spending quality time with mom and dad before being whisked home to never-never land.

Balboa Park also hosts an annual Silent Movie Night at the organ pavilion where they bring in famous organists from all over the world to accompany the movies. This year the guest organist was Scottish organist, DonaldMcKenzie. He was fabulous!

This was our first year going and so we put out an open invite for friends to join us. We ended up having a huge turnout. It was awesome, and we will definitely be going back next year.

The summer concerts will be coming to an end next week, but if you want to check out the schedule before it ends (and you totally should) you can do that here.
