“enormous outdoor organ!”

Spreckels Organ Pavilion, is a pavilion in San Diego, California that houses the open-air Spreckels Organ located in Balboa Park. The Spreckels Organ is one of the world's largest outdoor pipe organs. Constructed for the 1915 Panama-California Exposition, it is located at the corner of President's Way and Pan American Road East in the park.Free organ concerts are given each Sunday afternoon, sponsored by San Diego Parks and Recreation Department, the Spreckels Organ Society and private donations. On Monday evenings in the summer The Spreckels Summer International Organ Festival is also presented by the Spreckels Organ Society. During the summer on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays "Twilight in the Park" provide mixed popular concerts. The annual December Nights celebration is performed on the Spreckels stage. On August 31, 2014, Drive Like Jehu reunited for a performance at the pavilion, accompanied by Civic Organist Carol Williams. The collaboration was facilitated by the Spreckels Organ Society board of directors. The novelty of playing with the accompaniment of the organ was a key factor in bringing the band back together.

They do events on various nights throughout the summer as well. It's crazy that the organ is literally the size of a building! It's a really pretty pavilion. Nice place to sit and take a load off.
