Sitting on the slopes of Snow Valley on Saturday, September 15, 1990 to listen to the Beach Boys was something those of us who were there will never forget. Hundreds of local residents and Beach Boy fans sat on the slopes on blankets, sleeping bags or cozy towels to enjoy what proved to be an absolutely fabulous event and one that many local residents would love to see again if it would ever be possible. What a night! The event was known as the “Mile High Beach Party” and it was made possible by the Lake Arrowhead Summer Music Festival. All of us who were there will never forget that event. As we sat on the slopes with blankets to keep warm and to help give us some “cushioning” the huge crowd just loved, loved, loved this event and we “had fun, fun, fun but Daddy didn’t take it away”.
The tickets for this fabulous, fun event were only $25 which included parking in the huge Snow Valley parking lots. From beginning to the end of this fabulous, fun concert the huge crowd of concert-goers had an absolute party. Oh what a night! People were singing along, dancing and having an absolutely fabulous evening. Of course the world-famous Beach Boys had a great time tooooooo! We loved every second and wish the concerts could be held again. Unfortunately, that’s not likely to happen as it and the John Denver concert were, I believe, the last of the concerts at Snow Valley. The several hundred of us were lucky, lucky, lucky!
