San Diego Weekend Guide (9/6-9/7)

San Diego Surf Competition

Here’s your San Diego weekend guide. Enjoy these 10 activities to make your weekend awesome!

  1. Celebrate the grape at Escondido’s Grape Day Celebration on Saturday. So much to do and so little time: make sure to at least fit in some grape stomping, band listening and fun zone playing!
  2. Exhibits. Opening this weekend: Galaxy of Glass at Fallbrook Art Center and Art Auction 2014 at Oceanside Museum of Art (just opened). Closing this weekend: Spanish Sojourns at San Diego Museum of Art (closes Tuesday) and Explor-O-Rama at Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.
  3. Pick up some ideas at the San Diego Fall Home Show all weekend. Activities, demos, vendors and more await at the San Diego Convention Center. Did we mention it’s free?
  4. Feel it in your soul at the San Diego Blues Festival all weekend. The Embarcadero is the place for great beats and cool cats.
  5. March the parade for Poway Days. This community annual event is in its 50th year and  features a parade and 5K.
  6. Enjoy some works of art at the Fiesta de Kustom Kulture in Old Town on Saturday. What types of art you may ask…cool cars!
  7. Play on the beach with the Mission Beach Centennial’s OMBAC Volleyball Tournament all day Saturday. Costumes, beer garden and more fun will go along with the tourny.
  8. Get cultured at the San Diego Brazilian Day Festival in Pacific Beach on Sunday. Enjoy dancing, music, food and fun a la Brazilian style!
  9. Hang ten for the San Diego Surf for the Sea Contest in Oceanside. Or while you’re at it, enjoy the dog version with the Surf Dog Surf-a-thon Surfing Contest in Del Mar!
