Evening’s special program and festivities will kick off at 5 p.m. in front of City Hall on Palma Avenue
–The City of Atascadero is inviting everyone to a special Patriot’s Day 2021 commemoration event, combined with the “Saturdays in the Park” summer concert, to be held on Saturday, Sept. 11, in the Sunken Gardens in Downtown Atascadero, from 5 to 9 p.m.
The evening’s special program and festivities will kick off at 5 p.m. in front of City Hall on Palma Avenue. The Show Choir from Atascadero High School will perform the National Anthem, and then everyone will be able to meet local heroes, with our local officers and some of their vehicles on hand from the Atascadero Police and Fire Departments.
Scheduled to arrive exactly at 5:30 p.m., the moving “Missing Man” formation fly-over above the Sunken Gardens will be performed by the pilots of Estrella Warbirds Freedom Flight. Following the Warbirds flyover, there will be more patriotic music performed by soloists from the Atascadero Fine Arts Academy, and other Atascadero schools, plus another opportunity for everyone to Meet Your Local Heroes.
Just before 6 p.m., the evening will transition from the Patriot’s Day tribute to the special double feature of “Saturdays in the Park” Summer Concert Series. During the break, attendees can plan to visit the food trucks from Hungry Mother, Paradise Shaved Ice, Mary’s Cuisine and Let’s Crave It Crepes, or visit one of the local breweries to grab a craft beer or bottle of wine to go. The Atascadero Firefighters Association will be selling Patriot’s Day commemorative shirts. From 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., don’t miss visiting the Rock Art booth by #SLOPaintedRocks where you can paint your own patriotic rock to add to the Rock Snake out at Atascadero Lake Park.
The double-feature concert will start at 6 p.m. with Painted Red Music, and continues at 7:30 p.m. with Unfinished Business until 9 p.m. This concert has been moved from Atascadero Lake Park over to Sunken Gardens for one evening only.
