Wow, lots of things going on in San Diego this weekend, mostly related to fall and Halloween. Here are a few things I've found:
Boo Parade: This parade is happening October 25th at 10 AM along El Cajon Boulevard from 54th Street to Montezuma Road. Then, there will be a festival at College Avenue Baptist Church from 11AM to 5PM. Visit the official website, http://collegeareabid.com/boo/ for more information.
Least Tern Habitat Restoration: If working outdoors and helping wildlife is your thing, come out to Stony Point on Fiesta Island to work on the least tern nesting area. Volunteers will be helping with weeding and repairing the habitat to help manage the weeds before the terns return to nest next year. Stony Point is located at the far end of the dog run on the west side of Fiesta Island. It starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. Contact the Conservation Program Intern, Christina Hirt, at 858-273-7800 or at email@example.com.

Borrego Days: I really love this festival out in the desert in the middle of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It happens every year on the last weekend of October. This year, it will start on October 24th at 5PM, but the parade takes place on the 25th at 10AM. From the 24-26th, there will be live music, food, and art booths at the Circle. For a schedule, directions, and all the rest, visit the Borrego Chamber of Commerce's official page.
There are a lot of other things going on this weekend, but to list them all would make this a really long article. These three are my favorites. Don't forget, also, there will be a special Bicycle Birding tour on the Silver Strand next Thursday morning, October 30th at 8AM, as well. You can find more details about that on the San Diego Audubon Page.
