Raisins, Walnuts, Lobster & Beer, Plus a Good Scare – California Weekend Cheers!


Are you looking for good cheer or maybe a scare? If the 26 pieces of satellite hurling from space onto undetermined spots on earth aren’t enough scare for you, Knott’s Berry Farm launches the Halloween season with its extreme fear machine–the Scary Farm. Beer lovers have their season now with not just beer festivals, but Oktoberfests, to boot. You’ll find these suds sensations throughout the state this weekend.

California’s Got Food! Foodies can delight in Lobster (Redondo Beach), walnuts (Walnut Creek), healthy raisins (Dinuba), pure sugar at the Candy Festival (Fairfield), Farm Food Trails (Windsor), Greek (San Francisco), Gourmet (Morgan Hill), Salsa (Redwood City), Chicken Teriyaki (Auburn), Apples (Apple Valley), and Beer Galore!

Got Beer? Beer is the bubbly, happy drink celebrated in the Fall at Oktoberfests, and at Beer Fests — San Diego County Beer Fair or OC Beer Week are going on this weeend.

Cheers! Watch airplanes glide (safely, we hope) through the air at Salinas Air Show, pirates at Seafarer’s Marketplace and Pirates Festival in Sacramento, Excalibur Medieval Tournament in Arcata, and more!

In a Daze? Pacific Coast Fog Fest will take care of your haze (Pacifica).
