Blending holiday spirit with a bit of western history, the City of Carlsbad will celebrate the season at its Holiday at the Rancho event Saturday, Dec. 5, from 5 to 8 p.m., at Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park.
The City of Carlsbad is asking for input concerning what exactly they should do to improve the coastal zone from the Warm Water jetties south to Mansano Drive.
“We have a lot of opportunities along our coastline to improve safety, especially for bicyclists and pedestrians, ease traffic flow and create a better experience overall,” said Assistant City Manager Gary Barberio, who is overseeing a variety of coastal improvements in Carlsbad. “Before we make any changes, we want to make sure we have considered the input of everyone who uses the area.”
If you’d like to contribute please attend the community meeting on Thursday, Nov. 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Carlsbad Senior Center, 799 Pine Ave. For the official word from the City of Carlsbad, please follow the jump.

The New Village Arts Theatre is happy to present The Weir, written by Conor McPherson, directed by Kristianne Kurner opening on October 10, 2015. But the even better news is that beginning October 2, 2015 NVA will be running some “pay-what-you-can” previews. Here’s what The Weir is about:
You can always count on a pub to be the one place you want to go where everybody knows your name — which is especially true for the townsmen who congregate at Brendan’s pub for their daily pint. However, all familiarity gets shaken up when a mysterious woman enters the bar and the men instinctively regale her with fascinating tales of spirits from the past and present. But one story proves to be much more chilling and real to the men than they could ever imagine. Winning the Laurence Olivier Award for “Best New Play,” this haunting production of The Weir makes its NVA debut!

You’ll be entertained the whole day through with live music, pumpkin painting with the kids, photo booth, and our NEW costume contests!

What better way to close out the City of Carlsbad’s TGIF Concerts in the Parks than with the blue-hair waving sounds of The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra. Who is that? Well, maybe you should ask your grandmother (or great-grandmother?) and she’ll tell you that Glenn Miller’s Orchestra was the swingingest thing since the New York World’s Fair in 1939.
The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra is one of the most popular and sought after big bands in the world for both concert and swing dance engagements. The orchestra plays more than 300 live performances around the world each year and is pleased to close out the TGIF 2015 concert series.
We’re just hoping there will be more people in the audience than in the orchestra. Calavera Hills Community Park is located at 2997 Glasgow Drive, Carlsbad, California.
