On Sunday, Galco Soda Pop Stop in Highland Park will hold its first-ever Summer Soda Tasting. It’s an event to promote new soda flavors as well as raise funds for the Friends of the Southwest Museum Coalition. In addition to sampling some old time favorites, Galco owner John Nese will unveil a limited edition, 2,500 bottle soda that event organizers say “traces its roots to Highland Park.” What does a sip of Highland Park taste like? We will find out on Sunday.
Also this weekend, the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts on Saturday hosts an all night “ambient music happening;” Heritage Square will hold an outdoor screening of the Western classic “Badlands of Dakota;” and Vista Hermosa Park will be the site of a nature walk and native plant drawing session. Sunday’s events include a Highland Park poetry reading featuring Dennis Cruz and Rolando Ortiz and the Backwards Beekeepers meet in Atwater Village to discuss swarms. More to do in Save the Date.
