ALPINE, Calif. — May 28, 2009 — As the weather begins to heat up and children get out of school, Viejas offers a place to beat the heat with an array family-friendly events. The annual Power of Nightfire show will feature performances at 9 p.m. every Thursday through Sunday, until Labor Day. The unique performance intrigues the audience with water fountains, lasers, pyrotechnics, special effects and intricate choreography. The show tells the story of an ancient Kumeyaay Indian who saved his people from the evil “water spirit” and brings the valuable water back to his village. The show, which is free and open to the public, is suitable for all ages.

The interactive fountain at the Viejas Outlet Center provides a cool place to beat the heat during the summer months and offers a fun way for children to play in the water while parents relax. The fountain will be open to the public weekends only through June 13. After June 13, it will be open daily through Labor Day and will also feature intermittent nightly “wet shows” and Splashtracks, which bring the fountain to life as streams of water dance to music and lights.

Located at 5005 Willows Road in Alpine, Viejas Outlet Center features 255,000 square feet of shopping space and is home to top American brand names including Coach, Polo Ralph Lauren, GAP, Guess and Nike, all at discounted rates. Set on 37 acres in the east San Diego County foothills, the Viejas Outlet Center provides shoppers with a peaceful ambiance that draws upon the natural beauty of the surrounding environment including meandering paths of lush landscaping and plant life, natural water features and massive rock formations. Viejas Outlet Center also features great eateries and the spectacular interactive water fountain, which allows water play for kids … and adults, and the spectacular “Power of Nightfire” performed nightly May through September. The Outlet Center is open daily from 10a.m. – 8p.m. Monday thru Saturday, and 11a.m. – 7p.m. on Sundays.
