Fun Things to Do this Weekend!


I know it is still the beginning of the week but there are so many fun things going on this weekend I couldn’t wait until Friday to share them all with you!  I will come out with my full list of things to do on Thursday/Friday as usual but wanted to give you a heads up on some fun and free events you do not want to miss this weekend!

Saturday, September 17

Bressi Ranch Village Center is having a grand opening with tons of free things for the kiddos from noon to 4 p.m.  The first 200 customers to show up will receive tote bags filled with merchant gifts and coupons, and everyone can enter to will one of five $100 shopping sprees.  The free family fun includes face painting, balloon sculptures, performances by the Boys & Girls Club Band, and free train rides. There will also be complimentary food and product samples, prize drawings and plenty more.  For more information click here.

Virtu Boutique in Carlsbad is hosting a 90’s theme cocktail party with free food and drinks.  Free slap bracelets, (yes, they still make those) costume contest, and a FREE $10 CREDIT if you RSVP. This is my favorite boutique, the prices are amazing with nothing over $50 in the entire store.  The event is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., to RSVP you may call (760) 743-4800, or by sending an e-mail to, you may also RSVP for any friends who will be joining you at this fun event.  If you dress up you will receive another $10 credit upon your next visit and be entered to win $50 to spend at Virtu~!

Family Movie night at Stagecoach Park in Carlsbad.  We are so excited to bring our son to see E.T. for the very first time at this fun and free family event!  The fun starts at 6 p.m. and the movie starts at 7:30 p.m., bring low-back chairs, blankets, and picnic dinner.  There is a fun zone for kids, activity wristbands are required to participate and will be available for purchase at the event for $5 each.

My only problem now is how to fit everything in!  Wish me luck!
