San Diego Real Estate Voice : What's Happening in San Diego April 2013

What's Happening in San Diego April 2013

April Events Springtime in San Diego

April is the first full month of Spring and the weather inspires that most people get out and do things. San Diego county has many events going on through the weekends in April to inspire these activities even further. 

Going to coast is good anytime, visiting Balboa Park, the Zoo or the Safari Wild animal park is as well. The planned events for April are special in that most everything that is taking place is outside in the beautiful San Diego sunshine. Cool breezes and the warming sun combine for a refreshing and wonderful day in the fresh air.

 

 The Del Mar Spring Home Improvement Show

This is San Diego's largest home show of the year located at the Del Mar Fairgrounds with over 450 exhibitors showcasing products and services to improve our homes. This is a 3 day show running April 12th through April 14th from 10:00 to 6:00 daily. I am personally inspired every time I go to this show. 

San Marcos Swing into Spring Festival

Come and taste the delicious foods and deserts, live entertainment, arts and craft show and so much more. This festival is all about family and the little ones are not forgotten. There are kiddie and carousel rides to make it entertaining for the whole family. Sunday April 14th from 9:00 to 5:00PM

Lakeside Western Days Rodeo and Parade

This annual event will held at the Rodeo Grounds in Lakeside. Seven major events over the 3 days of rodeo competition will include, Bareback Bronco Riding, Saddle Back Bronco Riding,Tie down roping,Team roping,Steer Wrestling,Bull Riding and Barrel and Stick Horse racing.

Dig out those dusty cowboy boots and western apparel and come on out for a great time. Yea Haw! The Rodeo begins Friday April 19th through Sunday April 21st , 10:00 to 5:00 Daily

Fall Brook Avocado Festival

The rural community of Fallbrook is known world wide for it abundant avocados. There is an "Everything Avocado Shopping" area and this street fair like event covers the entire Main Street of Fallbrook. Ever tried Avocado Ice Cream? Amazing! Sunday April 21st from 10:00 to 5:00PM

Earth Fair 2013

EarthFair is the largest environmental festival in the US. The fair will take place at Balboa Park on April 21st from 10:00 to 5:00 PM
The festival will showcase a wide array of causes, goods and services pertaining to our environment and quality of life. It is also a good excuse to come to the park, learn ways to protect our environment and have a good time while there. 

Little Italy Art Fest

I have attended this event every year and this weekend long extravaganza of the arts will showcase visual and the performing arts, this being one of the largest shows of its kind in San Diego during the year. This is not to be missed. The Shop keepers and restaurants in the heart of Little Italy make doubly sure the Pizza is hot and at affordable prices. Nothing like it. April 27th and 28th from 11:00 to 6:00 daily. Aside from all the great art and entertainment, it is like a giant neighborhood party, italian style. Great fun for the whole family.
Moma Mia, Dat's a nice!

William, is that some kind of daisy California poppy?

William - it looks like the spring weather is bringing a lot of activities into full bloom. Hope you are able to enjoy some of these events.

Hi Endre, I go for a few hours and then head over to the embarcadero. Always great photos there. We have 3 Naval carriers in port and I think all three would be visible on Shelter Island.

Hi Mona, I believe it is a Gerber Daisy. They are great in the garden and also cut. If you cut them, they should be wired because they tend to droop in a day or so if not. Floral supply houses all have the wire and it is great for using gardens flowers in a vase.

Hi Joan, I should have used that expression "Spring weather is bringing a lot of activities into full bloom".

Hi Dorie, My flower photos will never exceed Roys collection. He should do a tabe top book of his floral collections. It would be awesome in both scope and size, :-).

I have heard people say San Diego has the best climate in the country, always nice. I have been there a few times and it was warmer then here in Chicago Land. There are no pretty flowers here now like in your great pic.

Thanks for the inspiration William,

Noah

Hi Noah, We do have very nice weather most of the year. Probably the most number of days with Sun. Despite the fact that many of our flowers prefer some shade during the sunny days. Hope the flowers pop up soon in Chicago Land.

William, The best climate in the US. It's always clear skies with late night and early morning cloud cover. I miss Mission Beach. What a great lifestyle.

Hi Mark, Mission Beach is one of the coolest communities and the residents there will all tell you so, LOL. Seriously it is a special place to live with it's own unique life style.

Posted by William Johnson, San Diego Real Estate Voice, GRI CRS e-Pro CDPE (RE/MAX Associates) over 5 years ago

Hi Alexandra, These Gerbers are so incredible. I have seen so many more colors this year than in years past. 

Posted by William Johnson, San Diego Real Estate Voice, GRI CRS e-Pro CDPE (RE/MAX Associates) over 5 years ago

Hi David, San Diego awaits your arrival. If you need a good REALTOR®, I happen to know one personally, :-)

Posted by William Johnson, San Diego Real Estate Voice, GRI CRS e-Pro CDPE (RE/MAX Associates) over 5 years ago

Some great events coming up in the San Diego area; wish I could be there.  It's actually starting to warm up in Ohio, and we've had a few days of sunny and 70s weather.  Lovely flower too!

Posted by Roberta Kayne, CRS, ABR, SFR, RRS, Realtor, Re/Max Affiliates (Dublin & Central Ohio Homes) over 5 years ago

William, That is a beautiful photo to illustrate some great activities!  Have a great day!

Posted by Tony & Darcy Cannon, The C Team (Aubrey and Associates Realty) over 5 years ago

That is one GORGEOUS flower!!  I love all the spring happenings - our annual spring Home & Garden Show is this coming weekend, and am hoping I can make it there....

Posted by Nancy Conner, Olympia/Thurston County WA over 5 years ago

I like your flower. I wish we could attend the Little Italy Art Fest.

Posted by Roy Kelley, Roy and Dolores Kelley Photographs (Realty Group Referrals) over 5 years ago

William - stunning photos of a Gerber daisy! My mom just got back from San Diego and she's been all over the world and said it was one of her favorite places. After looking at her gorgeous photos it's now on my bucket list and hopefully soon. I'll have to look you up when I come visit!

Posted by Kristine Ginsberg, NJ Home Stager (Elite Staging and Redesign, LLC) over 5 years ago

Hey, I have those flowers in my yard! They do very well in the dry heat we have in Sacramento and our extremely hot hot days.

Man, Earth Day, I remember the first Earth Day, and I thought what a cute concept, but I bet it doesn't catch on. LOL.

The flower is beautiful, William. And that list of events is great too. I'ld like to come out for the Avocado Festival.

Posted by Toni Weidman, 26 Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 5 years ago

OMG an Avocado Festival!  I am so there -- and really excited to try the avocado ice cream!  (Actually, it wouldn't take much of an excuse to get me to travel to your beautiful part of the country!)

Posted by Dianne Goode, Realtor/Broker (Raleigh Cary Realty) over 5 years ago

I am ready to try the avocado ice cream.  Have an outstanding week.
