It’s the beginning of a new school year and the Temecula Public Library has put together some exciting and innovative programs to make the transition back to education much easier for local teens. Held on one Monday per month through December, the library’s fall teen programs use themes like pop culture and holidays to provide teens, grades 7 through 12, with creative, educational enrichment and teen building through fun activities with their peers.
When the City of Temecula debuted the Eagle Soar Playground and Splash Pad, designed for children and families with special needs, it was just one more example of how our city leaders strive to include every member of the community in the fun. Now, Thursdays at Eagle Soar will feature even more fun and learning activities with special needs children and families in mind.
“Shrek: the Musical” is a singing and dancing retelling of the journey of title hero and his talking donkey best friend to save the beautiful Princess Fiona from the evil Lord Farquaad. Without giving too much of the plot away, it ends with everyone living (spoiler alert) happily ever after. Now the Broadway hit comes to our own backyard when the City of Temecula Youth Musical Theater brings “Shrek: the Musical” to the Temecula Valley High School Golden Bear’s Auditorium this week.
One of the best things about the summer months is the bountiful fruits and vegetables not available at other times of the year, but what some of you might not know is that harvesting fresh local produce, specifically berry picking, has become a favorite Temecula family activity. Grab a bucket and rub the kids down with sunscreen because there are two local berry farms that are ripe for the picking – Kenny’s Strawberry Farms and Temecula Berry Company!
School may be out but the Temecula Public Library is making sure the learning doesn’t stop! With reading and activity programs for children, teens and adults, the library offers dozens of ways to keep your famiy’s brains engaged in between trips to the beach.
Supporting our local schools has never been so delicious when culinary playground, the Taste of Temecula Valley (TOTV), returns to the front of Temecula City Hall in Old Town this weekend for its fifth year of foodie fun! The yearly event provides guests the chance to sample some of the valley’s best food and beverage locations, all in one convenient fair-like atmosphere.
Elite athletes all over the world have dedicated their lives to achieving the ultimate goal of making it to the Olympics; the chance to represent their country amongst the highest caliber of competition. But now, some very special members of the Temecula community don’t have to wait four years for their chance to be their best.
This year, Peter Cottontail will hop his way to not one…not two…but three of Temecula’s beautiful community parks, including Harveston Community Park (28596 Dalton Road), Patricia H. Birdsall Sports Park (32380 Deer Hollow Way) and Temeku Hills Park (31367 La Serena Way), where he will drop his colorful collection of oval-shaped delights for children ages 1 to 12.
The newly-announced entertainment and schedule of activities for the Temecula Valley Family Fair, debuting late next month, evoke the images of old fashioned county fairs all over the country. With carnival rides, fair food, vendors, animals and live entertainment, the fair promises three days of family fun!
ne of the greatest things about the City of Temecula is that there seems to be a fantastic park or playground on just about every corner. City officials definitely know the role parks play in children’s lives and they want every child in the community to be able to participate in the fun in a creative as well as safe environment.
