Sunday will be quite a day for the City of Aliso Viejo.
Beginning at 9 a.m., the City’s first Lip Dub music video will be filmed with more than 1,300 people expected to sing and dance down the streets of Aliso Viejo to the music of “Celebration” by Kook & the Gang and Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO.
This first citywide Lip Dub, which is a combination of lip-sync, dance routine and parade, is being produced by PeopleStar FilmWorks, led by Aliso Viejo business owners Chip and Kim McAllister, winners of "The Amazing Race 5." The one-of-a-kind effort, which is being modeled after the widely successful Grand Rapids (Mich.) Lip Dub, will appear online in an effort to draw attention to Aliso Viejo.
Kyla Ross, a member of the gold medal-winning U.S. Women's Gymnastics team, returned to town this week and is expected to take part in the event.
Participants will perform along the streets of Journey, City Lights Drive and Pacific Park to the Aliso Viejo Town Center fountain from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. World-class choreographer Milo Levell, known for his work with Michael Jackson and other high-powered acts, will choreograph the community.
Those involved in the Lip Dub along Journey should enter onto Journey from Aliso Creek Road. Parking will be permitted on both sides of the street up to the road closures located at the Orange County Sheriff's substation and south of the Orange County Fire Authority Fire Station 57.
Participants involved in the Lip Dub in Town Center should enter off Aliso Creek Road or Enterprise. Parking will be allowed in Town Center with the exception of the southwest portion between City Lights Drive and Edwards Theatre.
Registration is still available for the Lip Dub at www.cityofalisoviejo.com.
Then, later that day, the next in a series of summer concerts in Aliso Viejo sponsored by the Aliso Viejo Community Association will take place at Grand Park/Town Center Amphitheater from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Of course, if you absolutely need something to do this weekend and can’t wait until Sunday, there is always the AVCA Movie Night on Friday at Grand Park, from 7:30 to 10:00 p.m.
The last of the summertime movies will feature “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial,” a family classic directed by Steven Spielberg that won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1983.

Elliott assumes responsibility for E.T.'s safety while searching, in a race against time, for a way to reunite E.T. with his own kind in a story of friendship and discovery.
