Salsa? Blues? Reggae? Country? If you like music, you’re almost certain to hear music you like on Saturday at Redwood City Courthouse Square.
From noon to 8, the PAL Music Festival fills the Square with music (and there’s a dance band on the bill too, so by mid-afternoon, if you’ve got to move, they’ll have the groove). This is a brand new addition to summer in Redwood City – it’s free – and there’ll also be BBQ from some of the best in the Bay Area, and a special section for kids (in case your kids don’t like their parents’ music).
PAL is the Police Athletic League, which sponsors a wide range of programs for kids – including summer camps, sports like baseball and soccer, after school help (during the school year) and a digital literacy program. You can learn more about all that on Saturday as well.
And, if you can’t wait till Saturday – the festival kicks off Friday night, when Journey Revisited (a Journey tribute band) takes the stage from 6pm till 8:30 (and, previous to that, there will be a celebration of life for the late Steve Penna, otherwise known as Mr. Redwood City). So be there, “when the lights go down in the city.” And come back the next day for all the rest.
