Legoland Adds San Diego To Miniland

by The Editors on November 10, 2022

Visitors to Legoland California can see the sites of San Diego without leaving the Carlsbad, California resort thanks to the addition of America’s Finest City to the park’s world famous Miniland.

“San Diego is one of America’s most beautiful destinations filled with incredible architecture, landscapes and history – making it an obvious choice when selecting the next city to add to Miniland U.S.A,” said President of LEGOLAND California Resort Kurt Stocks. “Our in-park Master Model Builders are extremely passionate about this project, and they can’t wait to collaborate with LEGOLAND Parks fans near and far on the future of this very special addition to Miniland. Each build will provide guests with a deeper connection and understanding of our home city and will encourage our local and out of town visitors to embrace all that San Diego has to offer.”

The San Diego Miniland will be completed in the spring of 2023. So plan your vacation accordingly. For the official info from Legoland California, please follow the jump.

Yes, We Should Save The Stack

by The Editors on September 9, 2019

Retired Navy vet Jim Strickland told The San Diego Union Tribune that he likes the Carlsbad Stack and he thinks we should keep it. We totally agree (not only because its part of our logo).

“I like it, and I think it’s crazy to get rid of it,” said Jim Strickland, a retired Navy veteran and 19-year Carlsbad resident who has long admired the distinctive column. 

We also agree with Susan Gutierrez.

“It’s an iconic, visible symbol of Carlsbad,” said Gutierrez, president of the Carlsbad Historical Society. . . “As a resident, when I see the power plant stack from anywhere on the coast, I know I am in Carlsbad, and home,” she said.

Exactly. Apparently, the issue will be discussed by the Historic Preservation Commission tonight. For all the details, please click the link.

Cellist Ashley Bathgate At St. Michael’s Chapel

by The Editors on February 7, 2019

The Carlsbad Music Festival Presents Sonic Chapel with cellist Ashley Bathgate Friday, February 15, 2019.

The desire to create a dynamic energy exchange with her audience and build upon the ensuing chemistry is a pillar of Bathgates’s philosophy as a performer. Her affinity to dynamism drives Bathgate to venture into previously uncharted areas of ground-breaking sounds and techniques, breaking the mold of a cello’s traditionally perceived voice. Collaborators and fans alike describe her vitality as nothing short of remarkable and magical for all who are involved. Bathgate is a member of the award-winning, internationally acclaimed sextet Bang on a Can All-Stars, the chamber music group HOWL, and is also a founding member of TwoSense, a duo with pianist Lisa Moore, and Bonjour, a low-strung, percussive quintet.
