Sending summer out with a bang and a band…

“It’s not the just the best way to finish off the weekend and kiss the summer goodbye, it’s the only way!” Those were the words of one concert-goer at The Del Mar Foundation’s summer twilight concert on Sept. 9.  But just about every one of the almost 3,000 music lovers in attendance felt the same way.

Lugging beach chairs, blankets and unbelievable picnic fare, families and friends gathered on the grassy knoll overlooking Del Mar’s beautiful beach and settled in to enjoy an amazing evening of music, dancing, laughter and the best in alrfresco dining!

Playing everything from pop hits, golden oldies and everything in between, the seven- piece band The Heroes rocked this town inside out at Sunday night’s end of season Powerhouse Park sunset show. The grass dance floor was filled with tumbling toddlers and smooth grooving grown-ups.

Being reminded that “these are the good times. “ and to “leave their cares behind…” was the perfect way to ring out the end of yet another spectacular Del Mar summer and was the gift of The Del Mar Foundation, in partnership with local sponsors. As they have been for the past 30 years, the Del Mar Foundation brings the community together with these unique seaside concerts. This year, concert patrons include long-time sponsor the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and, new this year, Marrokal Design & Remodeling.  Concert supporters Jake’s Del Mar, Pacifica Del Mar, Poseidon on the beach, and Sbicca have joined them in underwriting all four of this summer’s Powerhouse concerts.
