Pilates Party a Success

April 2 turned out to be a bright, sunny day at the Lower Presidio Historic Park and the Pilates Party with Bagpipes, Fusion and Serra was a great success.  An estimated 80 people attended during the 2 hour event and the order of the day was enthusiasm for development of the Park and its recreational opportunities.

PILATES MONTEREY was the main attraction with a display of new equipment and classes for beginners and seasoned players.

Spread out on mattes and tarps on the knoll overlooking the Monterey Harbor, participants were challenged by expert instructors to stretch their limits in three sessions spread over the two hour event.

Master Bagpiper MICHEL d’AVENAS entertained those in attendance, together with passerbys on the Recreation Trail, with traditional Scottish music and a virtuoso performance.  Refreshments were provided by FUSION, with its unique blend of Asian healthy food for sale.


And there were plenty of visitors in attendance just to see what was going on at the Lower Presidio Historic Park.  Board members of the Old Monterey Foundation manned an informational table to explain plans and prospects for the Park.

Several interested citizens purchased memberships in the Friends of Lower Presidio, making this a most worthwhile day on our calendar.
