Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters

 VIP Bloggers Preview Night 2018

The 85th year of the Pageant of the Masters, brings us "Under the Sun" for one of the most memorable events in the history of the show. We start with the first peoples who inhabited this place called Laguna to the modern surf tribes living here today. A history lesson like no other, told in art and music. This years Pageant is not to be missed! #FestivalPageant


In the early years of the 20th century, a new generation of impressionists and plein air painters set up their easels outdoors and reveled in the natural beauty to be found as far as the eye could see. In the 2018 show, UNDER THE SUN, theatrical magic, live music and light-hearted storytelling will honor Laguna’s own and other artistic pioneers from around the world who left their studios in search of new inspiration.


There’ll also be no shortage of fun and surprises as the Pageant acknowledges two local milestones: the 85th anniversary of “living pictures” at the Festival of Arts and the 100th anniversary of Laguna Art Museum. You won’t want to miss this exciting salute to a world of “art that lives and breathes” beneath the stars in the Pageant’s beautiful amphitheater.

A Local Guides First; Safecast visits the San Onofre Nuke Dump




Safecast-collaborators from the NGO Residents Organized for a Safe Environment (ROSE) recently used a bGeigie Nano when visiting the site of the San Onofre nuclear plant in California. It was the first time that Safecast’s devices have been used to make measurements inside a US nuclear plant facility. 

The group, which also hosts a Solarcast, has been volunteering with Safecast for a while now, and their strong, local efforts combined with Safecast’s reputation and standing could lead to several Solarcasts finding a more permanent home on the grounds of the San Onofre Plant.

“Our collaboration has the potential to lead to the creation of the first monitoring system of its kind in the US, which would be really exciting, and show the value of local groups having open, accessible tools to work with, rather than having to rely solely on equipment and measurements from companies and government organisations,” Sean Bonner of Safecast says.

ACTION ALERT! CLICK HERE! Write your email today to support an independent real-time radiation monitoring system at San Onofre, because if you are paying attention, SCE has no plan b if something goes wrong, and the last time they had a leak they waited 17 days to let the public know about it.
