Get Out: Sports Fest, Doggy Fest and Beer Fest

Enjoy games, sports, films or the protecting the environment this weekend.

After last weekend’s busy schedule of superheroes, science fiction and sandcastles, this final weekend in July is a bit more chill. That’s not to say there isn’t stuff to do—we’ve got plenty of events in town and beyond that will satisfy the down-to-earth and the go-getters.

Coronado has some local community events for sports lovers and dancing divas. Watch competitors in the Sports Fiesta and Junior Olympics or let your baby move and groove at a local resort. If you’re ready to get out of the city, head over to Imperial Beach for a volunteer opportunity or go downtown for some all-day doggie fun.

The Del Mar Fairgrounds boasts a Marley this weekend, so you can get your reggae on after the races. And La Jolla has a film festival that’s for the fashionable only. Enjoy these last days of July!
