Are you looking for something to do in San Diego to celebrate the arrival of Fall? I don't know about you, but the past few weeks have been so uncomfortably hot that I am aching for some fun outdoor activities that will allow me to appreciate our San Diego climate and gorgeous outdoor scenery. Here are a few Fall Events in San Diego that I highly recommend you consider adding to your schedule.
One of my favorite weekly activities in La Mesa is the Farmer's Market in the Village. Located at the La Mesa Civic Center, the Farmer's Market is every Friday from 2pm to 6pm. It is located at the foot of Date Avenue, across from the Police Station. There are fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers and hot food prepared on site. There is ample free parking, and it is also super close to my office! If you have a chance to get over here on Friday, give me a call and I will meet you there!
Coming soon is an annual Fall Event in San Diego located in the La Mesa Village...OKTOBERFEST! This event will be on October 4, 5, and 6th this year and features 250 booths, 2 beer gardens, great food, live music and BEST OF ALL-- FREE ADMISSION for the whole family!!
But truly, if you are looking for a traditional Fall Event for San Diego and can consider a quick drive East, I highly recommend Apple Picking in Julian.--here is a quick description from their webpage:
"Revel in the fall foliage and delight in succulent apples September through mid-October (or when apples are gone) during the Julian Apple Harvest when Julian celebrates the award-winning apples that helped it prosper after a short-lived gold rush in the late 1800s. Located only 45 minutes northeast of San Diego, this charming and historic mountain town offers homemade apple pie, apple cider, art shows and entertainment during this favorite time of year.
The highlight of the harvest is the Apple Days Festival, a two-day celebration on October 5th and 6th at Menghini Winery, which features apple displays, music and dancing, an antique tractor display, children's games and activities, gold panning demonstrations, a beer and wine garden, food and merchandise vendors, contests, and, of course, apple pie. The event runs from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, both Saturday and Sunday. The admission is $5 for adults with children 12 and under free of charge. The first 250 people through the gate (paid admission only) each day receive a free pie server."
Don't forget to stop at the Pumpkin Patch on your way home. My favorite for those candid picture moments is the Julian Mining Company. Not only can you pick out your pumpkins, but you can also pick raspberries, pet the animals and let the kiddos pan for gold! Even my pre-teen enjoyed the gold panning expedition we did last year. Truly a memorable experience and I LOVED meeting the owners of this adorable location.
