It's a jam-packed weekend in San Diego. Big fests are busting out all over, just as we hope spring will be soon. Enthusiasts of all stripes are descending upon the region, from yoga practioners and to and do-it-yourself home improvers.
We’ve got the best bets for you from March 3-6, whether you want to stay near Lemon Grove or take a drive to find even more to do.
This week, we feature a fundraiser for a local children's center and a late weekend comedy night in case you need a couple of giggles to face Monday.
