This Weekend in San Diego: August 29-September 1 {Labor Day Weekend}

I might’ve won $100, laid out poolside, and had a ton of fun in Vegas, but wouldn’t you know it, I’ve been sick all week. Maybe I had a little too much fun?

Either way, I’m still looking forward to Labor Day weekend here in San Diego. There are no guarantees I’ll get out and do much (as a result of me feeling so blah), but San Diego residents and visitors will not be disappointed (unless it has to do with traffic, because I can only imagine how bad it’s going to be all weekend long).

Here are three events that I think are worth checking out this weekend in San Diego:

Festival of Sail (event website)

Friday-Sunday, 9:00 am-7:00 pm
Monday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm

The largest tall ship festival on the west coast begins on Friday and lasts through Monday. This event, which is particularly good for families, will feature a petting zoo, arts and crafts, food, vendors, a beer garden and more. Tickets range from $5-7, and children under 3 get in free.

Padres vs Dodgers (Padres schedule)

Friday, 7:10 pm
Saturday, 5:40 pm
Sunday, 1:10 pm
Monday (vs Diamondbacks), 1:10 pm

petco park section 303

If I’m feeling up to it, this is definitely something I’ll be getting to this weekend. Not only are Padres games always a good time, but if it’s going to be against the Dodgers, it’s going to be an exciting and fun game. People from LA will definitely be coming down to watch (especially with the long weekend) and it’s sure to get a little crazy at Petco Park.

U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge (event website)

Friday, 9:00 am-7:00 pm
Saturday, 9:00 am-9:00 pm
Sunday and Monday, 9:00 am-7:00 pm

Live music, dancers, food, a beer garden, and…sandcastles! I have a friend who went to this last year and the photos looked amazing. “Master sculptors” (as they’re called on the website) from all over the world are coming to San Diego for a sandcastle competition. Apparently these people start building days before and have until Saturday afternoon to finish. This is another one that, if I’m feeling up to it, I’d love to attend.


Long weekend or not, what are you doing this weekend? Any exciting plans?

I’m definitely planning on taking it easy and getting over whatever nonsense I have been dealing with for the past week. Possible movie + junk food night with some friends on Sunday. Maybe some beach time. But mostly just taking it easy. So exciting, I know.

    1. Planning on it for sure! I just need to get rid of this nasty cough but I have a feeling that laughing, drinking and eating junk will help alleviate all symptoms of this cold.


  1. That sucks that you’ve been sick! :[ I hope you feel/get better soon!

    I’ve only ever seen pictures of the sand scuplture contests, but they always look so amazingly intricate–it’d be awesome to get to see them in real life!


    1. Yes, especially since it’s a long weekend and I just want to get out and enjoy it! Thanks for the well wishes!

      And yes, the sand sculptures look amazing…I’m hoping I’m feeling up to it to get out and see them!
