Special Olympics Athletes at Fullerton’s “Concert in the Park”

Fullerton, CA – Special Olympic athletes, coaches, trainers and volunteers from the countries of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Lebanon, Rwanda, Ukraine, and Tunisia will receive a warm welcome by the City Of Fullerton at the “Concert in the Park” on Wednesday, July 22. This welcome is part of the “Host Town Fullerton” festivities leading up to the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles on July 25.

On stage and performing on Wednesday night will be Woodie and the LongBoards bringing their California-like music to our guests from afar. Woodie and the Longboards is one of the most in-demand tribute acts in the country; performing all of the hits of the Beach Boys and songs from the era we’ve grown up loving.

The band will perform from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

All concerts in the series are free and will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m.  While food will be available for purchase at the complex, from the StuffNIt Burgers food truck and Kona Ice, concert-goers are welcome to bring a picnic supper to enjoy, as well as lawn chairs or blankets for seating. 
 
The Sports Complex is at 560 E. Silver Pine St., which is off Bastanchury Road, west of Brea Boulevard, in the Brea Dam flood control basin.

Parking for the disabled will be available at the site. 

Overflow parking will be provided at the First Evangelical Free Church parking structure on the northwest corner of Bastanchury Road and Brea Boulevard.   Shuttle service will be provided to and from the parking structure and the sports complex from 6-9 pm.
