Garden Grove

Main Street lands on “Mars”

“BRUNO AND THE HOOLIGANS” rocked Main Street in downtown Garden Grove on Thursday evening (Orange County Tribune photos by Jim Tortolano).

It may be a while before NASA takes us to the planet Mars, but the City of Garden Grove and the Garden Grove Community Foundation brought Mars to Orange County on Thursday.

The Bruno Mars tribute band – Bruno and the Hooligans – attracted a large crowd to Main Street in the downtown area. Hundreds of people gathered to listen, clap, cheer and sometimes even dance and sing along.

This was the second in a series of free outdoor musical concerts being offered in the City of Youth and Ambition. Next up on Thursday, July 7 will be the Blue Breeze Band in Eastgate Park in West Garden Grove.

That park will also be the home for the next three concerts: Yachty by Nature (July 14), Tijuana Dogs (July 21) and Gold Rush Country (July 28).

Before each concert local high school students compete for class prizes and the title of “The Voice of Garden Grove.”

THE TRIBUTE to Bruno Mars inspired a lot of dancers on Main Street Thursday evening.
