    The second day of Kaaboo takes over Del Mar on Saturday, Sept. 14.

    Americans love to celebrate Cinco De Mayo, but in reality, Mexico's Independence Day, or Fiestas Patrias, is on Sept. 16, so naturally this weekend is a good time to really experience Mexican culture and its impact on our San Diego lives. There's a Fiestas Patrias celebration in Old Town all weekend, and it's full of vibrant food and music for all to enjoy. There are actually a ton of festivals and fairs and daytime events to get you going this Saturday. And besides the sold-out Kaaboo festival, there's so much music tonight. Casbah is doubling up with an early show with Junior Brown and a late show with Surefire Soul Ensemble. Peter Bradley Adams returns to Soda Bar and fiery stars Cafe Tacvba get things going at Harrah's SoCal Resort. I could go on, but you can check the list for yourself and find some magic in the music tonight.
