Topic: Other Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3885 - I called the City of Carlsbad, Leo Carrillo Ranch, for info on the upcoming 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival. I did this because the current status of the web page is incomplete, as seen here.
In previous years, I have blogged about the Leo Carrillo Film Festival, as well as just walking the Leo Carrillo Ranch, as seen here.
The reason I called, is that the TGIF Concerts in the Park, also being sponsored by the City of Carlsbad, California, usually overlaps the schedule for the Leo Carrillo Film Festival.
This year it again overlaps!
The TGIF Concerts in the Park run every Friday Night from June 28th thru August 23rd. Here is the link to that concerts schedule.
Please Note: I have blogged about the TGIF Concert in the Park series for the past several years, as seen here. You don't have to make a reservation to get in, and it is free to attend. Tina and I will be attending several of these concerts, and will probably blog about them here in this Blog of mine.
As for the info on the upcoming 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival, here's what I was told:
The 'Dinner and a Movie' presentation is on Friday Night, August 16th. There is a cost to this, as it is the fund raiser for the rest of the five films that will be presented this 2013 Season.
There will be a night, near the end of the season, that will honor Huell Howser, who once broadcasted from Leo Carrillo Ranch. Huell passed away in January of this year.
Probably the last night of the season, or near the end of the season, will be a special 'Cisco Kid' Night. Leo Carrillo was 'Pancho' in the TV series. The years we have been attending, there has been an episode shown each night before the film is shown. So I'm looking forward to this special night!
Again, the above is not set in stone at this time. When the schedule is printed, I'll be sure to post a copy at my Facebook Fan Page.
I just wanted to tip you all off to this upcoming 2013 Season, as once again the Leo Carrillo Ranch folks are setting a limit of only 150 attendees. You have to 'reserve' each night and be on their list to get in to the Ranch to view the Film Festival.
Again, the link to the web site for additional info is shown here.
I hope to see some of you at the 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival! For those of you that can't make it... Well, I'll be blogging on those nights for sure!
Oh, and for those of you that don't know the comic book connection with Leo Carrillo... Here's the link to the 40 Cisco Kid comic books that were published from January of 1951 to October/December of 1958!
