Curt Seeden: A busy July in Fountain Valley

July can get busy in Fountain Valley, and before you know it, your calendar is packed. So I thought I’d mention several upcoming events that may not be on your radar.

First off, the city’s Concerts in the Park series is underway every Thursday night in July at the Fountain Valley Sports Park.

Desperado pays tribute to The Eagles on Thursday, July 12. On July 19, the Beatunes celebrates the music of the Beatles and on July 26, Uptown Funk salutes Bruno Mars.

Concerts run from 6 to 8 p.m. and are free.

Additionally, during the final concert, July 26, the Fountain Valley Chamber of Commerce hosts its popular Business Expo, featuring dozens of booths promoting local businesses. The expo starts an hour earlier, at 5 p.m., also at the sports park.

To become an expo sponsor or to sign up for a booth, call the chamber at 714-962-3822. For more information on the concert series, call 714-839-8511.

The Fountain Valley Sports Park is at 16400 Brookhurst St. (at Heil Avenue).

And remember: On concert nights, the Market in the Park and Food Truck Frenzy will be open in the adjacent Recreation Center parking lot. Check out the fresh produce and other offerings from myriad vendors.

On Saturday, July 14, the New Beginning Fellowship Center and the Fountain Valley Alano Club will hold their 18th annual walk-a-thon in the fight against alcohol and substance abuse. Check-in is at 7 a.m. and the walk — a 4-mile walk around Mile Square Park — begins at 8 a.m.

Registration is $20, which includes a t-shirt; registration will be held at the Alano Club, 16581 Brookhurst St., across from the Fountain Valley Sports Park. For information on sponsorship opportunities or to volunteer the day of the event, call 714-839-2515.

Also on July 14, the Fountain Valley Friends of the Library will hold a bake sale fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the library. Cookbooks, kitchen accessories and $1.50 root beer floats will be for sale.

For more information, call 714-402-6121.

Finally, on Saturday, July 28, the 10th annual James O. Harper Elementary School All-Class Reunion will be held at Harper Park.

The reunion, which starts at noon, is open to anyone who attended Harper School from 1963 to 1984, anyone who taught at Harper, and any parent who had a child go to Harper. Those attending should bring a chair and food for themselves.
