The Music in the Park concert series has now faded away and will not be back again until next Fiesta Day’s celebration. Gotta admit, I’ll miss it! Last Sunday evening was a beautiful way to say goodbye to the music. It was such a gorgeous sunset with wisps of pink clouds floating across the blue sky. As dusk deepened, a sliver of a new moon appeared. A new moon always reminds me of a scimitar and the tales of “One Thousand and One Nights.” Sunday night’s crowd was in a lively mood as well as the local musicians of the band, Palm Drive.
