Addison Pacesetters (the 50+ group) meet the first Wednesay of each month at Dunn Bros. Coffeehouse on Beltline Road and learn about the Town of Addison. This month, Mr. Chris McMurtry, Special Events Coordinator, spoke to us.
Here are some interesting tidbits from his presentation:
The schedule for the summer events has changed this year. Symphonic Saturdays will now be in June (too hot in July for the demographic audience). Summer Salsa will now be in August. July Jazz remains in July. So, all the concerts are on Saturday evenings. Cinema in the Circle, the outdoor movie events, will now be on Fridays. And, the theme this year is Summer of Spielberg. June 5th: Back to the Future; June 12th: The Goonies; June 19th: Jurassic Park; and June 26th: Jaws. Stay after the fireworks on July 3rd and watch Raiders of the Lost Ark and avoid the traffic!
Another special summer event is the outdoor production (in the Ellipse at Addison Circle Park) of Guys and Dolls on September 4th & 5th, 2009. The largest of the special events is, of course, the world-renowned Kaboom Town, held every July 3rd. There will be live entertainment from 5:00-9:30 pm. Radio station KRLD will simulcast with the flyover from the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, 7:15-9:15. JACK-FM will simulcast during the fireworks.
Best of all, most of these events are FREE! There is no charge for Cinema in the Circle, Symphonic Saturdays, Kaboom Town, July Jazz, or Summer Salsa. And some Addison Circle retailers and restaurants will serve up special discounts on event days.
Next month, July 1st is the first Wednesday. Come out and join us at Dunn Bros.
