TVRPD's Exciting Events
May 31, 2014 is the Run with the Wind (and under the sun) four "miler" at the Mountain Valley Airport (Glider Airport) on Harris Road. Brought to you by World, Wind & Solar, GE, Sun Power, Solar City, Tehachapi Recycle, Mid-American Solar and Michelob Ultra, this four mile course takes you east toward the beautiful hillside of GE turbines, turn South along Danford Road, back West along Dennison and wraps back to the Glider port on Braverman. TVRPD chose to celebrate the alternative energy that is a lifeblood of Tehachapi. All runners will receive a Leslie Jordan technical race shirt, dye-cast finisher's medal, swag bag with goodies, digital timing and Michelob Ultra (for those over 21). Runners and walkers of all levels are encouraged to attend! Race day registration 8 a.m. Race begins at 9 a.m. New race, New logo, New Swag, Run up!
June 21, 2014 Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Park District is proud to announce the opening bands for the (free) Summer Music in the Park Series. Headlining the first concert is world traveled ADEMA. With Tehachapi being the first stop on their summer tour and an album set to release on July 22 it is great timing to hear the new songs from the popular band that calls Bakersfield home. Opening for ADEMA is Lions Named Leo, a Bakersfield band with two lead vocalists and a trumpeter. Their sound is a refreshing blend of ska, reggae, rock, punk and funk. Now, with Grammy winning Manager/Promoter Dennis Rubenstein & team, these Lions are ready to pounce! The night will begin with Bakersfield local band Vlad Arthur at 5 p.m. As with all of the music in the park events, great food and great craft beer serving begins at 4 p.m. at Meadowbrook Park. Grab your friends and family for a summer evening of great food, craft beer
and incredible music. For more information on music in the park and the bands, visit http://tvrpd.org.
