Don’t you find that there are days in San Diego when there’s more to do with your kids than time to do it? Saturday, June 4th is one of those days.
Sadly we’re going to miss this Saturday’s Fairy Festival at Summers Past Farms.
We have enjoyed the San Diego Botanic Garden Fairy Festival (coming June 18th!), which features harpists playing “fairy” music, wonderful little crafts, a fairy parade and play time in the amazing children’s garden.
We’d really like to check out Summers Past Farm too, but on June 4th at the exact same time we’ll be attending the Touch-a-Truck event at Torrey Pines High School. This event raises funds for childhood cancer research while placing kids in front of, inside of and on top of cool vehicles of all makes and models. We’ll be there right at 10 a.m. to catch the Hullabaloo concert and will likely stay until we’ve explored everything, met the Star Wars characters, had our faces painted by the military volunteers on hand, eaten from the gourmet food trucks. Really looking forward to this one!
While we’re exploring cars and trucks, other East County families will be checking out planes at the Wings over Gillespie air show. On both Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th, more than 30 vintage, military and modern airplanes and helicopters will be on display. For the first time, the Navy SEALs will have a display that will include Navy SEAL personnel and equipment. Fly overs, a kids zone and a craft beer festival round out the festivities.
Finally, if you have children under age 12, you might like to attend the bike helmet giveaway at Westfield Parkway mall in El Cajon. Free to the first 250 kids who arrive, the event will feature a meet and greet with Chargers player, Marcus McNeill, prize giveaways and displays.
So, what will you do Saturday??
