The Curse of Capistrano was a 1919 serialized novel by Johnston McCulley and the first work to feature the fictional California character named Zorro (zorro is the Spanish word for fox). It would be later published as a book in 1924 under the title The Mark of Zorro. It is set amongst the historic Spanish missions in California, pueblos (towns) such as San Juan Capistrano, California, and the rural California countryside. Come enjoy a picnic in the park and a memorable play.
