Fun Weekend Ahead! Saturday March 2, 2013

ImageWhat a day!  I tried to take advantage of this summer tease but taking the Little Grom down to RAT Beach today and we had a blast.  The water is a little on the cold side but with a light breeze and light crowds, it was worth giving him a shoulder ride up the hill at the end of our session.  I hope you too can take advantage of this great weather this weekend – there’s a lot to enjoy.  Besides the beach, here is what is happening:

Whale Of A Day! (Saturday 10-4) festival celebrates the annual migration of the Pacific Gray Whale off the coast of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Fun, food, entertainment, whale watching, education, children’s activities (face painting, games, storytelling, inflatable jumpers), Interpretive Center museum tours, Coast Guard exhibits and lighthouse tours (close at 3pm).  Free shuttle to and from the event at Rancho Palos Verdes City Hall, 30949 Hawthore Blvd, RPV. or

PV Little League Opening Day Parade and Games.  The Parade will start in Malaga Cove and make its way to the Valmonte Little League fields at Valmonte Elementary School.  There will be games and fun throughout the day.

St. Patrick’s Day 5K Run/Community Walk & Leprechaun Dash (Sunday, March 3) beginning at 8 a.m. The race starts and ends at the Village Runner store located at 1811 Catalina Ave. in Riviera Village in Redondo Beach. The course takes participants along the Esplanade to Knob Hill and back. All participants will receive a St. Patrick’s Day Run t-shirt. There will also be chip timing, age division awards and cash prizes to the top three overall male and female runners in the 5K. Late registration begins at 6:30 a.m. with the 5K getting underway at 8 a.m. and the Leprechaun Dash starting at 9:30 a.m.

I’m hoping to get to at least one if not all of these events and maybe even get started on that veggie garden in the back yard.  Have a great weekend!
