Irvine Senior Connection - September/October 2019

Activity Guide CLASSES & ACTIVITIES

Dear Friends, With summer behind us, the City of Irvine has a full calendar of events to celebrate the fall season. Mark your calendars for this year’s Irvine Global Village Festival on Saturday and Sunday, October 12 and 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Orange County Great Park. Irvine’s historic fall festival expands to two days, offering food, art, and music throughout an entire weekend at the Great Park. For more information, see Page 13 or visit irvinefestival.org. Continue the fall fun by participating in Lakeview Senior Center’s annual Trick or Treat event. Dress in your favorite kid-friendly costume and join the Halloween festivities on Friday, October 25 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. (see Page 13). If you are interested in volunteering to lead fun activities for children, contact Connie Larr at 949-724-6096. Get your holiday shopping done early at the Irvine Fine Arts Center’s annual Holiday Faire on Friday, November 8 from 5 to 9 p.m., and Saturday, November 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (see Page 8). More than 100 talented local artists will showcase unique handmade gifts for purchase, including holiday decorations, hand-blown glass, ceramics, jewelry, folk crafts, clothing, and more. For more information, visit irvinefinearts.org. I hope you will be able to join us for these signature events that are fun and social for the whole community. Sincerely, Sheila Driscoll Community Services Manager
