Free Parking –  Rain or Shine – No Pets Allowed

I have yet to make it to this particular event, but only because I want to go with some money to spend and that has yet to happen.  I have read many reviews about it and the people who have been, seem to go back again and again and almost seem addicted.  I fear this would be my fate as well.  If you are in the area, check it out and let me know what you think!!



The Homestead Museum…another So Cal hidden gem

The Homestead Museum…another So Cal hidden gem

For my fellow nerds who love to enjoy living history and occasionally dressing the part, YOU MUST visit the Homestead Museum in September.  I went last year and will be going again this year.  You can expect the following:

Ticket to the Twenties

Saturday & Sunday, September 14 & 15 • 3 to 7 p.m. both days • Free—but bring spending money for food and shopping • 1920s dress is encouraged and Prohibition will be strictly enforced! • Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets, but please leave little Fido at home (only certified service animals are permitted at the festival)

Dig out your glad rags and join us for a weekend of great fun! Celebrate the Roaring Twenties as you enjoy dance demonstrations and lessons, fashion shows, silent films, crafts, music, games, vintage automobiles, historic house tours, tasty food, and much more.

Here is some pictures from my experience last year!
