San Diego News Flash! Big Bay Boom a Explosive Bust ! Hundreds of thousands of San Diegans see 4 giant simultaneous explosions instead of the promised extraodinary fireworks display.  I arrived hours earlier than the planned 9:00PM show to be sure I had a great parking space. I went to the same location ( rooftop of the San Diego Hilton Hotel)  and could see a large section of the San Diego Bay. It was fun being able to watch the large barges being pulled into place and 9:00 PM, a computer glitch fired all the fireworks on all four barges, all at the same time. The explosion was huge and luckily no one was injured.  I expect that the contractor for the show will be doing some serious explaining.  500,000 were expected in attendance but cooler weather and overcast skies may have diluted ...

San Diego Summer Pops Schedule for July 2011 The Summer of 2011 will be a banner year for entertainment  here in San Diego. The line up of Entertainers  this year will provide quite a mix that should provide something for everyone's taste. Performed at a specifically constructed Stage at one of my most favorite locations, the Embarcadero Marina South directly behind the San Diego Convention Center. I have marked the approximate location where the Stage will be set up as well as the location for the fireworks for the 4th of July Celebration.  The Schedule for "Entertainment on the Waterfront"  in San Diego kicks off this weekend June 25th with ..... Tux and Tennies Summer Bash.  This is a private event celebrating the 100 Anniversary of the San Diego Rotary and culminating the end of the...

 Year Anniversary Of Naval Aviation Celebrated This Weekend in San Diego It is natural for the year of Naval Aviation events around the US to start right here in San Diego. It was 100 years ago that the first successful hydroplane flight by Glenn H. Curtiss in San Diego bay showed the world that aviation could go to sea and North Island ( most westerly tip of Coronado Island) is the birthplace of all Naval Aviation. I wish I had more photos to share with you but this weekend at 1:00 PM on Saturday, a parade of nearly 200 aircraft from all the various eras of naval aviation will take to the sky and create a flyover parade that will be the first of it's kind. This is an historic event whose proportions  will excite all who witness it. I fully intend to be ready. I have my spot picked out,...

In SoCal the Labor Day weekend has traditionally marked the end of summer, even though the official end is 2-3 weeks away. Even though many kids are already back in school, there are still a number of "end of summer" things to do for residents of Temecula, Murrieta and other parts of Riverside and San Diego County. I don't know about the rest of the country, but in Southern California it seems the holiday weekend now starts on Thursday. The "get out of town" traffic with the boats and toy haulers seems to start earlier every year. Many residents however, choose a "3 day staycation" and this is the first in a series of posts of cool things to do in and around the Temecula Valley. The tall ships aren't really coming to Temecula, but they will be in San Diego for a five day nautical festiv...
