Walnut/West Covina – It seems like every city has concerts or movies in the park nowadays, and Walnut and West Covina are no exception. In fact, this is a great form of entertainment, and with blankets and picnic baskets laid out to enjoy, and friends and family nearby, it is almost akin to a time gone by.
This year, the City of Walnut will entertain at Creekside Park, located at 780 Creekside Drive. On Tuesday evenings from 6 to 10:30 p.m., you and yours can enjoy some great music, followed by a family movie. If that weren’t enough, admission is FREE!
