Vol. 10, No. 15 – April 26 – May 9, 2017 – Ojai News & Events

On Saturday, July 29th, at 7pm, the Fenians will perform at the Dancing Oak Ranch, located at 4585 Casitas Pass Road.

The Fenians, for 20 years, have delivered their potent mix of traditional Irish folk and good old rock n roll all across the USA and Ireland. With an ever expanding set of original creations, as well as contemporary and traditional tunes plucked from the panoply of the genre, these five lads put on a live show that is second to none.

Adult tickets are $20 in advance only, kids 7 to 14 are $10 and can be paid for at the show. Pick up adult tickets in Ojai at Serendipity Toys, Ojai Creates, Ojai Coffee Roasting Company, and Cardinali Brothers Music.

Ojai native plant educator Lanny Kaufer is pleased to announce that he has added a second walk at the same beautiful private ranch in the Ojai mountains. The walk will take place on Sunday, April 30, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. One of the conditions of visiting this site is that the location cannot be divulged in publicizing the event. The group will meet at Maricopa Plaza for a carpool to reduce the number of cars on the private road. The travel time to the trailhead will be 15-20 minutes. Participants will have the option to linger in the exotic gardens to eat their lunch (not provided). Otherwise, they can plan on returning to Maricopa Plaza by 1 p.m.

The cost is $20 for adults, $15 for seniors 62 years of age and up, and $10 for students 13-18. Payment can be made by cash or check on the morning of the walk. An additional $5/person donation is requested by the nonprofit organization that manages the property to cover the costs associated with having visitors. Kids 5-12 can go free, one per adult, by prior arrangement. No dogs or smoking, please.
