Dia de Los Muertos Festival at Mission San Luis Rey

What a wonderful opportunity to visit the Historic Mission San Luis Rey AND join in the annual festival of Dia de Los Muertos.

The Festival use to be downtown in Oceanside near the pier. Now the last few year it has grown to draw such large crowds it has moved to the historical Mission San Luis Rey.

The festival is a tradition to celebrate the life of your loved ones who have passes away. It is a day of great joy and happiness.

Come down to the Mission today and learn about a culture  you may know little about or come and celebrate the life of your loved ones who have passed.

I've made a promise to talk to my kids about cyberbullying. Will you join me?

Sunset Market is Tomorrow night

Sorry I can't make it to the Sunset Market, but I hope to go between 9-1pm next to the civic center library for the weekly Farmers Market. At Coast highway and Pier View Way.

 Tomorrow night live on stage : Gino and the Lone Gunmen. A 3 piece band that performs a lively mix of Swing, Rockabilly, Jump Blues and Vintage Rock and Roll. Really sounds like fun. 

Also check in with the folks at the Main Street Oceanside Booth: Find out what's coming up in Oceanside. Our year is coming to a close. That means the annual Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Morning and the Lighting of the Christmas Tree celebration are just around the corner. So stop in and chat with Main Street Oceanside.
