Village music

Lew Parkinson and Carol Hyde were cutting a rug at Murieta Village's music potluck Tuesday night. Organizers hired Dennis and Hank, a pianist and tenor saxophonist who play Friday nights at the Ione Hotel, and invited the community to come by for music. More than 60 people showed up, many of them with potluck dishes, and chatted around tables, poured drinks for each other, danced and sang along with songs like "Moon River," "Hello, Dolly," "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "Bye Bye Blackbird."

(The spray park, in Riverview Park on the South, is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 2 to 7 p.m.) Early Saturday morning, below, shoppers flocked to Murieta Village to check out what neighbors and friends were offering at the annual Trash ‘n’ Treasure event.
