Don’t miss a live, indoor concert performance by Briefcase Full of Blues on March 12. Purely authentic and the most realistic rendition of the legendary characters of Joliet Jake (John Belushi) and Elwood Blues (Dan Aykroyd), this Blues Brothers tribute show brings back memories of the hit movie as they duplicate the music and fun of the original. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Cameron Park CSD office, Bel Air in Cameron Park, Cameron Park/Shingle Springs Chamber of Commerce and online; or at the door.
The 33rd Annual Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by the Cameron Park CSD, takes place Saturday, March 26, at Rasmussen Park. Arrive at 10 a.m. to meet the Easter Bunny; at exactly 10:20 a.m. the big egg hunt (divided into age groups: 0-3, 4-5, 6-7 and 8-10) begins. At 11 a.m., there will be photo ops with the Easter Bunny, as well as face painting and a bounce house for a nominal fee. Admission is free.
Early bird combo passes to Cameron Park Lake and the Community Center Pool are on sale at a reduced price! Purchase a family pass for $129, an individual pass for $50 or a senior pass for $40.
March kicks off a new session of taekwondo classes for all ages. Gymnastics and tumbling, including mini gym, trampoline and tumbling, StarLites, and StarBrites are also activities offered. If dance is more your style, try “Hula and Beyond Basic” for the youth, or “Nightclub Two-Step,” tango and hula for adults. Music lovers can try their hand at a basic guitar or classical guitar class.
The NFL-sponsored flag football program returns this spring for youth in grades 2-8. Get your friends together and sign up; deadline is March 18, and games start in April.
Mature adults can enjoy a variety of activities and programs on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the 50+ Room at the Community Center, including bingo, Mexican train, Rummikub and a “Mandalas and Color” class. In addition, there’s “Tai Chi for Better Balance,” chair-based yoga and pickleball.
