Moonlight Theater         video
Awesome musical theater with outdoor seating
Most shows are on summer evenings.

A few weeks before Christmastime, there was a free
event there for a few weeks… Jingle Terrace. It was too fun.

All year round they usually have something coming up… including July 4th fireworks show (get tickets early because they sell out).

The restaurant offers a veggie grilled cheese – delicioso!
