By Tianna Nguy, Communications Intern

Magic Lantern 3-D Show: The San Mateo County History Museum will have an exhibit designed by world-renowned light show artist, Bart Kresa. The Magic Lantern 3-D Show will display an array of colorful lights viewed with an abstract adventure through Redwood City’s history in honor of Redwood City’s 150th anniversary every Tuesday night. It’ll take you through Redwood City’s history in a mysterious time-traveling robot, from the days of redwood forests, through the hippie movement, and into the rise of Silicon Valley. There will be one free 20-minute show every Tuesday night. Times are subject to change weekly, visit www.visitrwc.org for a full schedule, and take Caltrain to the Redwood City Station for an easy commute.

Reggae in the Park: Music in the Park is back in San Jose for summer 2017 with another round of amazing artists entertaining the whole neighborhood and visitors of Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Doors open at 5:15 p.m.). There will be food trucks, craft beer, and fun and games for the whole family. On Friday, June 23, experience the roots reggae phenomenon of Katchafire. The all Maori Reggae band from Hamilton, New Zealand will bring the heat to the stage with opening acts including One A Chord from Monterey Bay and Mango Kingz, plus guest reggae DJ Robert Rankin of Massive Sound International. So what are you waiting for? We’ll see you at the Park! Take Caltrain to the San Jose Diridon Station and hop onto multiple VTA locations to downtown San Jose.
