SUMMER HAS OPENED on a rather soggy note this year. So far we've sought air-conditioned hibernation from the humidity for a few days, but you'd never know from the size of the electric bill.

If you're looking to nip that summer-hibernation cycle in the bud, check out these events.

Traditional fireworks

Pyrotechnics have returned to the Pasadena area this year.

The county Department of Recreation and Parks will sponsor traditional fireworks at Fort Smallwood Park tonight, starting about 9: 20.

The park will waive the admission charge after 6 p.m.

Evening concerts

Pack a picnic for dinner by the bay on Sunday evenings at Downs Park this month, as the Bayside Concert Series offers four concerts.

All concerts are in the Bayside Amphitheater and start at 6 p.m.

Minors Aloud (blues, country, and rock) will perform Sunday; the 229th Army Concert Band will perform July 14; Next Wave (big-band) will perform July 21; and Mystic Warriors (Andes music) will perform July 28.

Plenty of free seating is available. No pets, bike riding, skateboarding, in-line skating or alcoholic beverages are allowed in the concert area.

Children age 8 to 14 can join Ranger Dennis Cloutier at 3 p.m. July 11 for Earth Ball Games.

Registration is required.
