The Entertainment

With a new layout and a block-party/street dance vibe, there will be something for all ages to enjoy!

We’ll start off the evening with the magical fun and laughs of comic magician Jerry Frasier. An experienced entertainer of over 20 years, this former East Coast educator has a distinctive voice and comic energy that truly brings audience participation to a new level. Kids and adults alike will find him truly amazing.

We will continue the laughs with comedian Mary Rowles. One of the most original comediennes performing today, this knock-out, stand-out comedienne is a combination of Lily Tomlin, Andrea Martin and Celine Dion all rolled into one! Recognized as a smashing talent with over twenty years of experience, Mary Rowles is one of the most sought after female comedienne in the Midwest. Her heartwarming characters, side splitting stand-up comedy, and hilariously inspired songs create a contagious laughter that begins the moment she walks on stage and lasts for weeks.
Finally, we’ll wrap up our celebration with exciting lights and sounds of North County Sound and Light.  


Friday Night Movie

Our Friday night Movie Night is back by popular demand.  Grab a few blankets and pile your family in the car Friday, Sept. 18 to watch Paddington in the great outdoors.
