An ocean of people were drawn to the events taking place Friday evening at Ashley Pond Park.
The Red Elvises rocked the stage. The original members of the band came out of Moscow, Russia as a folk and folk-rock band. The band moved to Santa Monica, Calif.
By 1995, they were a Siberian surf-rock, Russo-American rock band. They became a major part of a street concert series in Santa Monica called the 3rd St. Promenade Series. Things were happening when the City of Santa Monica took Igor & the Red Elvises to court to quit playing on the streets. The crowds were too big. They’ve performed in Los Alamos more than 10 times.
Relay For Life also took place Friday around Ashley Pond. The annual event is the world’s largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all.
