Rush Park Summer Events 2017

Every year Rush Park in Rossmoor (3021 Blume Dr, Rossmoor, CA 90720) hosts a range of events which encourage local citizens to come out and have fun with friends and family. I’m always excited for the events personally because Rush Park is right across the street from our family. This year the events are returning in the form of Music, Movies in the Park, and Shakespeare in the Park. Admission is free to all these events and they even bring food trucks, which are delicious and convenient. Below is the schedule and description for such events, and we encourage you to swing by and check it out.


Friday, June 16th @ 6:00 pm: The Elm Street Band

The Elm Street Band has been referred to as “the soundtrack for the City of Long Beach, playing at events all over town” by the Long Beach Press-Telegram. They have been performing their garage/surf music throughout Southern California since 1988 and should definitely be an exciting act to attend with friends and family.

Friday, July 14th @ 6:00 pm: King Salmon Band

The King Salmon Band is another popular band throughout Southern California known for their fun mixture of recognizable songs. Their music is great to sing along with and dance to as they play a large variety of music from Cocktail Jams, Classic Rock & Disco, and 70s-80s-90s Favorites all the way to Current Classics. The King Salmon Band will be another exciting event that you should think about attending.

Friday, August 18th @ 6:00 pm: Smokin’ Cobras

The Smokin’ Cobras is a 6-person band who perform high energy songs all across Southern California. The Smokin’ Cobras perform the greatest songs from the 50’s to 80’s and are most well known for their Retro Rock ‘N’ Roll songs. This is going to be another great, exciting band to sing and dance along to, and we encourage you to stop on by and give it a go.


The three movies in the park are all kids movies which have come out in the past year or so. These movies are perfect for small children, and will likely be unfavorable without small children. Thus, while there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a kid’s film every once in awhile, these movies are probably best avoided if you don’t have young children.

Friday, June 16th @ Dusk: Sing

Friday, July 14th @ Dusk: Lego Batman

Friday, August 18th @ Dusk: Moana

Shakespeare in the Park

Saturday, July 22nd @ 7:00 pm: Macbeth

Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies revolving around a Scottish general spurred to power by the prophecy of three witches. Macbeth is a great tragedy and will surely be entertaining to anyone who enjoys the works of Shakespeare.

Sunday, July 23rd @ 7:00 pm: The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew is a lesser known comedy of Shakespeare focusing on a forced marriage in which the wife, Katherina, is a “shrew”, or an unwilling participant, before her husband Petruchio “tames” her with his tricks. The movie 10 Things I Hate About You is roughly based off this play so if you like that movie or like Shakespearean comedies than this play is for you.


These three types of events are different in variety meaning that everyone should be able to find at least one that they enjoy. These events are a perfect way to spend time with family and friends while remaining local and not having to spend any money. These various events are truly exciting community events, and we hope everyone tries attending at least one this summer.

Why Hire A Local Contractor To Build Your Pool?

As globalization begins to take ahold of every aspect of business, we are often faced with the decision over whether to outsource a project to a big firm or keep the project local. Big firms can often provide you cheaper services, but we don’t think that is all that matters – especially in the pool industry. Over the course of this article we will touch on a number of points about why we feel it is better to stay local and support your community.

Better Service

When you have an emergency and you need immediate help who do you want to call someone 5 minutes away or 5 hours away? Local businesses have the advantage in that they can offer you better, faster, and more efficient service. Not only this, the closer proximity to the job allows local businesses to spend less time traveling and more time working.

Familiarity with the Area

rossmoorBuilding a pool in New York is not the same as building a pool in Southern California, and the truth is nobody knows how to build a Rossmoor pool like a Rossmoor resident. The same goes for every practice of business because different areas have different legal codes. Only a local pool contractor will know the building department codes and building inspectors personally. Local pool contractors are also able to understand native adobe clay soil and its effects. It’s simple nuisances like these that give a local pool contractor the upper hand because in the end quality is more important than quantity.

Personal Relations

There is nothing more concerning than calling a business and hearing an unfamiliar, unwelcoming voice. However, when you deal with local businesses you don’t have that problem. When you work with a business you want to work with someone who is friendly and personal, and you are much likely to receive personal relationships with local businesses.

Local Referrals

When working with a pool contractor they can show you as many designs and as many photos as you want, but in the end nothing is like seeing their real work. Local businesses are superior because you are able to see their work and be confident that they can provide the quality you demand. You will never know whether you like a house design or like a pool design based off a drawing; rather, you have to be able to see their previous work and you can only do this with local businesses. In addition, local businesses allow for more neighbors and friends for referrals- so you can not only look out for yourself, but also your friends and family.

With local businesses, you can be sure that you are receiving the service and quality you want. It’s these small differences that make local businesses the way to go, and at the end of the day you can be happy going to sleep knowing that you helped out the local community.
