Hi All,

If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Claremont Village Square in downtown Claremont, now would be a great time to plan the trip. On Friday, August 1 from 5:30 to 9 PM and Saturday, August 2 from 10 AM to 9 PM the businesses within the Claremont Village Square will be celebrating their OFFICIAL GRAND OPENING!

There will be live music, food, fun, free giveaways, entertainment for the whole family and a chance to shop in some of Claremont’s newest and most exciting businesses and maybe even save a buck or two!

Friday will bring the official Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting and Dedication at 5:30 p.m. in the heart of the Square. In addition, the regular monthly ArtWalk and Friday Live, featuring live music at the Village Square, City Hall, and Packing House, held on the first Friday of every month, will be in full swing with free admission to the museum and galleries and a chance to meet the artisans who display their wares.

The 3-piece Joel Ceballos Band will entertain will entertain Friday night. But that’s not all, be sure to come again Saturday when you will find more live music, a roving magician, a stilt walker, a face painter and a balloon artist all there for your enjoyment. And the Laemmle Claremont 5 will be hosting a FREE screening ALL DAY LONG of The Princess Bride!

In addition, there will be free chair massages (I am SO there :-) , gourmet food and beverage samples, an AWESOME Sidewalk Sale on Saturday and more fun than you can shake a stick at.

Just a few of the special promotions you can look forward to include a “Wine Tasting Extravaganza” hosted by Wine Styles featuring over 25 wines to sample, as well as a live band, appetizers, prizes, and visits by winery owners distributors. If thats not your cup of tea (or glass of vino) pop over to Le Pain Quotidien where they will be holding a drawing for a “Hollywood Bowl Le Pique-Nique box,” which includes a host of gourmet food items in a reusable jute bag. There will also be several stores offering a 10–15% discount off your entire purchase.
