I had nothing planned for the weekend and now I don't even know how to split myself to get to everything that's going on. Check out what San Diego has to offer:
42nd Annual Chicano Park Day
Saturday, April 21st
10 AM - 5 PM
National Ave & Cesar E. Chavez Pkwy (Barrio Logan)
San Diego, CA 92101
Awesome event with lots of food, vendors, regional dances, culture and it's free for the public. This year's theme is "Lowriders: Part of Chicano Park's History, Culture, Price & Future!" they cars look amazing, and trust me, after looking at them you will have the Lowrider song stuck in your head for days! These are some pics and a video I've taken from previous years. It is also a great time to check out the restored pillars, the artwork is just amazing!
On Sunday April 22nd, the troop from Danza Azteca Calpulli Mexihca is present to dance "Toltecas en Aztlan" they dance for hours. All the booths are gone and the park is clean, all you hear is Aztec music and the amazing dancers.
Adams Avenue Unplugged
April 21 & 22
Adams Ave in University Heights, Normal Heights & Kensington
Free music festival with 170 live musical performances, both at indoor and outdoor stages. You will see lots of booths, foods and get into your favorite pub to refresh yourself. My friend Sara Petite will be performing on Sunday April 22nd, at 3 PM
Taste of Hillcrest
Saturday April 21
12 - 4 PM
Fifth Ave and Robinson Ave in Hillcrest
Cost $30 - $35
Self-guided tour featuring over 40 restaurants, so far I haven't been to one, looks like it's something to add to my San Diego to-do list.
10 AM - 5 PM
This is the 23rd annual event, and according to the website it is the "largest free annual environmental fair in the world" attracting around 60,000 visitors...and trust me, you can tell! For this event, the best thing you can do is arrive by public transportation, it's the green and sane thing to do, parking is insane!
You can go walking around looking at exhibitors or lounge in one of the many areas with outdoor music stages, it's a lot of fun if you don't mind crowds.
