Ramona Bowl

A special treat awaits you when you enter Ramona Bowl territory!  Approaching the amphitheatre, pause for a moment in the lower parking lot and take in the breadth of the San Jacinto Valley.  You will see barley, oats, and alfalfa fields as well orange and grapefruit groves that represent the rich agricultural history of this area. To the right are the San Jacinto Mountains and the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains that have been home to our local Native American tribes for centuries.  To your left, you will catch a glimpse of Ryan Field where famous aviator Chuck Yeager trained thousands of airmen during World War II.Ramona Pageant, San Jacinto Valley
