Oh my gosh, it’s another weekend coming up. What’s a person to do? Well, there’s plenty to divert your attention and make you forget about work, the bills, responsibilities, etc., so you can start plotting your escape right now and have something to look forward to — to help you make it through the week.

First off, the Los Angeles County Fair is in full swing (Aug.30-Sept.22, 2019) with amazing shows, food and entertainment such as Pitbull, WAR, The O’Jays, George Lopez, Charlie Wilson, Marshall Tucker Band, Old Dominion and Chicago. See the full list of September fairs in California, and enjoy this weekend’s fairs such as Mendocino County Fair & Apple Show, Santa Cruz County Fair and Tulare County Fair.

For Halloween fans, check out the theme park offerings that are quickly creeping onto the calendar of events such as Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights or Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Fright Fest, both starting up this week.

Merriment is in full-polka swing throughout the state of California with stein holding contests, keg tap celebrations and Chicken dancing galore at Oktoberfest celebrations. Among those that have launched for weekend pleasure are Avila Beach, Big Bear Lake, Carmel by the Sea’s Monterey Bay Oktoberfest and Huntington Beach.

Among the sellout music festivals and events is Kaboo Del Mar.

Lodi Grape Festival, and other grape stomps are taking place this weekend in Healdsburg, Madera, Ramona and Temecula.
