Mountain Blues

zoo blues So, GG has been suffering from the blues triggered by a couple of not so hot days but I seem to be functioning again.

But I am not the only one singing the blues this week since the Blues for the Zoo is August 7th.

Believe it or not, the Moonridge Animal Park celebrates 50 years this week.

Which confuses me because the first happenings there began in 1959–did I miss something or get confused?

Most locals know that the Big Bear Zoo started as a small rehab center and now has the claim to fame of being the only zoo in San Bernardino County and the funds raised will be used to support the Moonridge Animal Park’s wildlife rehabilitation program.

World class blues artists will play at Big Bear Lake’s Swim Beach Outdoor Amphitheater (located at 41220 Park Avenue in Big Bear Lake).

It will for sure be a great afternoon with internationally recognized musicians. I used to love listening to music over that way and love the Open Sky events.

Talent includes the Delta Guitar Slingers (Lucky Peterson, Michael Burks and Sherman Robertson), Guy Davis and Cafe R&B.

Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the gate which opens at 2:00pm. The performance will run from 3:00pm to 7:30pm. Parking on the grounds is $3.00 per vehicle.

Tickets may be purchased at the Moonridge Animal Park Gift Shop (43285 Goldmine Drive in Big Bear Lake) or in person or via telephone from the Big Bear Chamber of Commerce (909-866-4607) and lodging/ticket packages can be obtained by calling the Big Bear Lake Resort Association at 1-800-4-BIG-BEAR.

Last night our own Nancy Celeste Walker sang at the Redlands Bowl in a tribute to Patsy Cline as part of their summer music festival.

Anyone attend?

There was a bus that went down and I wonder how many Fawnskin party animals were on it since it was a bit quiet around these parts!
