‘It’s Only Rock n’ Roll’


The Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild invites the community to enjoy an evening of music, the ambiance of a summer sunset and camaraderie of neighbors on Saturday evening at Holiday Harbor Park.

“It’s Only Rock n’ Roll” features a picnic in the park, food trucks, merchandise vendors, the music of Southern Reign and the return of the Rolling Stones tribute band Jumping Jack Flash.

The event kicks off at 4 p.m. with a picnic in the park and merchandise vendors, followed by a performance by Southern Reign at 6 p.m. A local group, Southern Reign will entertain the crowd with its mix of classic rock and country cover songs from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

The highly-charged Jumping Jack Flash will take the stage at 8 p.m. and perform songs from the Stones’ extensive catalog. Those who attended the Fine Arts Guild’s Beatles vs. Stones concert at the lodge a few years ago will remember Jumping Jack Flash for their remarkable energy and enthusiasm.

Four food vendors will be offering burgers, tacos, tri-tip sandwiches, chicken on a stick and other barbecue items. There will also be an ice cream truck for cool refreshments on the warm evening.
