Fun Things to do July 6-8 in San Diego!


Friday, July 6

TGIF Concerts in the Park @ Stagecoach Park in Carlsbad –  I love that you can pack snacks and wine to enjoy during the concert. The concerts are totally free not even a charge for parking.  I would recommend getting there as early as you can because parking does become an issue. Remember that everyone wants to see the performers, so plan to bring LOW-BACKED chairs only. Shade structures are not allowed except along the back fences of the parks.  The concerts begin at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m.  See the full list below for locations, dates and shows.  This week Big Time Operator a Swing Band will be playing, for more information click here.
