Little Italy Festa, San Diego

Every year the Little Italy district of San Diego holds the Little Italy Festa street fair. Usually, the streets are covered with tons of chalk drawings (Gesso Italiano), but this year – due to weather, we think – the number of artists were less than before. There’s also lots of food and gift booths selling kettle corn, t-shirts, and lots of jewelry.

Below is a photograph of a chalk drawing off India Street at Little Italy, San Diego.

I passed this building for about nine months before I noticed the painting. It’s behind a parking lot and trees cover the view from Broadway. Even after I first saw it, it took me a few days find it again.

The building located at Broadway and 8th Avenue, San Diego.

Sunday in the Park with OSCAR®

The San Diego Symphony performed a free concert today at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park. Luckily, I just happen to be near the pavilion when the symphony was getting ready. They performed famous songs from movies (OSCAR as in the OSCAR awards).

Although, I had only seen a handful of the movies, they did play a few theme songs written by the great composer John Williams including the theme from Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Harry Potter. They also played the theme songs from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Wizard of Oz, Ten Commandments (to celebrate the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit), Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and a few more.
