The 7 Day Stretch

Posted June 14, 2012 in The 7 Day Stretch


Mouseketeers have always been destined for greatness. Take Rhona Bennett, otherwise known as either “Miss R&B” or even better known as one of the singers from En Vogue. Before her musical career took off, Bennett was one of the few children in the “new” Mickey Mouse Club along with JC Chasez and Keri Russell. Now she’s continuing her solo career (which is more than what can be said for Chasez).

7pm.  $20. Marquee 15, 9022 Pulsar Ct., Ste. H, Corona, (951) 200-4465;




Maybe some of you are nostalgic for the days of Tony Hawk and the skateboarding craze. Maybe for some of you the skateboarding craze never ended. But whatever the reason, you need no excuse to roll down to the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario and watch the pros shred. Watch 24 finalists compete in the biggest throw down outside the X Games, performing moves you could barely dream of pulling off with your video game controller.

Thru June 16. 4pm-9:45pm, 2:45pm-8:10pm. $15-$175. Citizen’s Business Bank Arena, 4000 E. Ontario Center Pkwy., Ontario;




The mouthful of a title that is the 23rd Annual Pomona Valley Family Juneteenth Family Jazz and Arts Festival is bound to have just as much excitement as the title has words. Various foods ranging from BBQ to sweets and fish to hot dogs are present to fill bellies. Don’t write off the dancing and jazz from bands like Kamasi Washington and The Next Step and Da Breeze.

10am-6pm.  Free. Downtown Pomona, 209 W. 2nd St., Pomona, (909) 621-9707;




Quit kickin’ yourself if you missed the chance to attend the Renaissance Pleasure Faire over in Irwindale. It’s been there for 50 years and will keep on returning. So try this one out for size: the Old World Festival is closer, easier to get to and still filled with the same fun entertainment like archery, jousting and Washing Well Wenches. Check it out while you can, this is the last weekend.  

Also on Sat. Online one-day adult, $12. At the door, $18. 11am-6pm. Crossroads Riverview Park, 14600 Baron Dr., Corona, (951) 735-0101;




Take a trip into the unknown—that’s what makes life so interesting, right? The fact that there are certain things we can only speculate such as “Where you begin and I end.” Annie Buckley’s art delves into the realm of meditation between Indian ancient philosophies and thought. Buckley answers these questions through creative photo collages and images of women transforming into trees. Crazy, right?

Thru July 31. Robert & Frances Fullerton Museum of Art, California State University San Bernardino, 5500 University Pkwy., San Bernardino, (909) 537-7373;




Before superheroes there were many other role models and stories that have been used to help shape kids into who they should become. LifeHouse Theater founder Wayne R. Scott has written a comedic musical based on heroes that are “super” but not by modern day definition. Take religious heroes like Moses, Joshua, David and Jonah; all individuals from the Old Testament who succeeded despite the odds.

7:30pm. Free. Plymouth Village, 900 Salem Dr., Redlands, (909) 335-3037;;


Wed 6/20


Themed exhibitions are fun but imagine the open creativity of a free-reign exhibition. At the Riverside Art Museum’s “Members’ Exhibition” you might see anything from a traditional painted portrait to some elaborate two-dimensional piece. Either way, everyone wins. Artists get to present the paintings which they so laboriously worked on and buyers get to fill in that empty wall space in the hall.

Thru July 6. Gallery hours: Tues-Sat, 10am-4pm. Riverside Art Museum, 3425 Mission Inn Ave., Riverside, (951) 684-7111;
