Just because Halloween is over doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do in America’s Finest City. Here’s what’s happening the first weekend in November.
Friday, Nov. 2
Dia De Los Muertos
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Old Town
No need to get spooked on the Day of the Dead, because Old Town is making it all about “saints, soul and style.” Bazaar del Mundo is transforming its shops into a walkable trail of altars, complete with skull-decorating stations. The center of Old Town will celebrate the traditional holiday with a parade and events at participating stores.
Asian Film Festival
Various times and locations
One of the largest film festivals in San Diego is showcasing more than 150 movies at multiple theaters throughout the county. Check out an individual movie or purchase a group package to enjoy all the San Diego Asian Film Festival has to offer.
Saturday, Nov. 3
9 a.m. at Qualcomm Stadium
It’s a race for the rainbow this weekend at Qualcomm Stadium. Hundreds of people are expected to participate in the city’s first color run, in which runners are doused with vibrant chalks. Cost is $55 for individuals and $50 if you participate in a team.
9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Petco Park
Have you ever seen a game of squash? Well now’s your chance to check out the fascinating sport at the Best in the West squash tournament at Petco Park . Saturday and Sunday the baseball field will be transformed into a squash arena, cool huh? Tickets start at $25 and benefit Access Youth Academy.
Sunday, Nov. 4
Fall Back Festival
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. outside Gaslamp Museum
The end of Daylight Savings means not only an extra hour of sleep – but also a party. Three blocks of downtown San Diego will be transformed “back in time” to the 1880s. Kids can pan for gold with actual prospectors, observe a real blacksmith plying his trade or saddle up for a western-style pony ride. Best part? It’s free and open to everyone.
Various times, locations
What 21+ individual in San Diego doesn’t love a good beer? It’s practically part of the city code that locals should enjoy a brew—probably because the city is known for its expertise in the craft beer industry. So celebrate with a pint (or two!) at one of the many San Diego Beer Week events going on around town, such as a pairing dinner or cask night. Cheers!
