We will have weekend weather that is perfectly conducive to heading out and enjoying the many activities and events taking place in the South Coast and beyond. While we’ll be near 80 degrees all week, we’ll have some cool evenings and mornings, getting as low as 47 degrees on Friday and the low to mid 50s for Saturday and Sunday.

As always, click on the title for more or detailed information on the event. Most of the events were pulled from our event calendar where you can find hundreds of local area events each month. The event calendar is FREE, so if you are a local business, and not taking advantage of FREE publicity, shame on you! Are you a local business and want to sponsor this high traffic, weekend guide?
