Harelson Park will be transformed into an Animal Adventureland Art obstacle course lead by a local theater company. You can stop by the park from 12-4 to enjoy community art making, Indian classical music, a folk/soul duo, and performances by Corona del Sol High School’s Steel Drum Band, Pueblo Middle School Hand Bells, and Kyrene Middle School Jazz Band.
