15 Things To Do This Weekend (Aug 15-Aug 17)

image_pdfimage_print

Another spectacular weekend of weather is ahead, with only one minor “speed bump” as you race around the South Coast enjoying the many things to do: a thunderstorm is likely at some point on Sunday. Otherwise, we’ll have some pleasantly cool mornings and evenings that hover around 60 degrees and the days will hit a high of 79 degrees. So put on your shoes, hop in the car, boat or on your bike and seize the day!

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?
