ATASCADERO – The city of Atascadero invites everyone to a special commemorative event for Patriots Day 2021 in combination with the summer concert “Saturdays in the Park”, which will take place on Saturday, September 11th in the sunken gardens in downtown Atascadero from 5 to 9 pm
The evening’s special program and celebrations begin at 5 p.m. in front of the City Hall on Palma Avenue. The very talented Atascadero High School Show Choir will perform the national anthem and then all of your Local Heroes can meet with our local officers and some of their vehicles from the Atascadero Police and Fire Department.
Punctually at 5:30 pm, the flying overflight of the “Missing Man” formation over the Sunken Gardens will be carried out by the pilots of the Estrella Warbirds Freedom Flight. After the Warbirds fly over there will be more patriotic music performed by soloists from the Atascadero Fine Arts Academy and other Atascadero schools, as well as another opportunity for everyone to meet your Local Heroes.
Get through together, Atascadero
Shortly before 6 pm, the evening changes from the Patriot’s Day tribute to the special double feature of the summer concert series “Saturdays in the Park”. During the break, check out the Hungry Mother, Paradise Shaved Ice, Mary’s Cuisine, and Let’s Crave It Crepes food trucks, or stop by one of the local breweries for a craft beer or bottle of wine to take away.
