Flights & Sounds Summer Festival at The Great Park
Tuesday August 6, 2013see more by aimee
The Flights & Sounds Summer Festival 2013 at The Orange County Great Park in Irvine just announced their free concert line up and it looks amazing! We are thrilled to be working with the Great Park as a Tiny Oranges sponsor because they have so much to offer Orange County families.
One of my favorite things about summer is being able to take advantage of the extra hours of sunlight and spend the evenings outdoors. And, since summer seems to be flying by, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate its last month than by catching a free concert in the park with friends and family.
The Flights & Sounds Summer Festival 2013 kicks off this Saturday, August 10 and runs every Saturday evening on the Terraced Lawn.
The Flights & Sounds line up includes eight diverse and talented musical artists and promises to engage music lovers of all ages.
