MissionViejoLife  The official account of the City of Mission Viejo, a pristine community boasting a picturesque landscape, safe neighborhoods and rich culture.


Meet Alf, a lovable large-and-in-charge 2-year-old brown tabby. Alf is a friendly cat who enjoys chasing toys, running through cat tunnels and snuggling inside the nearest box he can find. Alf is independent but always curious of what is going on around him and confident enough to approach anyone he meets. He loves to be around people but would prefer to be the only cat in the home. An approved applicant can take Alf home for a reduced adoption fee of only $20. To meet this handsome boy, stop by the #MissionViejoAnimalServicesCenter or call 949-470 3045 for more info.

#MissionViejo resident Dalal Dawly has always enjoyed gardening and this year, she discovered she could grow an enormous pumpkin in her front yard. Dalal took the seeds from a pumpkin her son gave her and planted them in April. It came as quite a surprise when this one blossomed to more than 75 pounds. As to the fate of the pumpkin, which is too large to pick up, that remains uncertain… but it could make a ginormous pumpkin pie or a great jack-o'-lantern come Halloween! #missionviejolife #pumpkin

It’s a bird, it’s a plane… wait, no it’s Ironman in a jetpack hovering over Mission Viejo? No joke. That will be the scene this Saturday when a jetpack pilot flies above Oso Viejo Park as part of a spectacular stunt during our Symphony in the Cities/Prelude in the Park event. In line with this year’s superhero theme, the stunt is part of an epic superhero-villain scene straight from a movie screen. It will take place ‪around 6:45 p.m.‬ just before Pacific Symphony takes the stage ‪at 7 p.m.‬ The evening also features family activities; tasty fare; gourmet food trucks; and a wine and beer garden. Free shuttle service is available from 200 Civic Center or get a healthy dose of exercise by riding your bike to the event! #Apollojetpack #pacificsymphony #superhero #jetpack
