Nov. 18 brings music, fun to Tempe’s Estrada Park

With triple digits mercifully over for 2017, outdoor-entertainment opportunities abound for residents of Tempe and West Chandler.
A free event featuring a top local band and multimedia art demonstrations takes place Saturday, Nov. 18 at Estrada Park, 1801 E. Palomino Drive.
The Estate La Colina Neighborhood Association is hosting the event at the neighborhood park that sits on the west side of McClintock Drive, just north of Warner Road.
Sponsored by the city of Tempe, the music and art festival begins at 1 p.m. with the Café Stringz trio composed of fiddle, guitar and bass along with some vocals.
The Mill Avenue Singers, a division of Tempe Community Chorus, performs at 2:15 p.m. The Chandler Children’s Choir ensemble takes the stage at 3 p.m. followed by The Sugar Thieves at 4 p.m.
For the kids, there’s a free craft activity near the playground equipment where they’ll make art from recyclables.
The fitness-minded—or those who’d like to give exercise a whirl—can check out yoga, Pound exercise, Tai Chi and Jazzercise on the basketball court.
Between the music, art and exercise, organizers are betting that attendees will work up an appetite.
Great Harvest Bread, Word of Mouth Grill and AZ PopCycle will be there along with food trucks, including one that features Italian ice cream.
Organizers recommend a picnic blanket or low-backed chair and will also be collecting warm clothing, blankets and usable items to be donated to a non-profit that assists the homeless.
To volunteer: or text 480-223-7217.
