Take yourself out of the ordinary and spend a few hours in one of nature’s wonders; a place where kids can run and adults can linger. This 50 acres of extraordinary color, better known as The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch®, is in bloom on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and offers a special nursery, garden, and gift shop by Armstrong Garden Centers in addition to festivals throughout the season.

Salsa Under the Stars

Oceanside Sunset Market
5 to 9 p.m., Main Street Oceanside
As if anyone needed another excuse to head to the beach for an evening sunset over the Pacific Ocean, the Main Street Oceanside business association is giving you one anyway. The Oceanside Sunset Market is taking over four city blocks of the downtown area so that about 200 local merchants can feature homemade crafts and tasty grub as live music wafts through the sea breeze-driven air. The free market is located on Pier View Way between Pacific Coast Highway and the Ocean every Thursday. 

Salsa Under the Stars

Guests can expect the delectable delights of Little Italy to be featured at food vendors scattered throughout the event. 

Tango by the Beach
5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Pacific Street Linear Park
Break out your dancing shoes as the sun sets on Oceanside. Tango by the Beach brings a rollout mat right up to the park (112 The Strand South) situated just steps from the shoreline so guests can learn the art of the romantic dance. An introductory lesson is held at 5 p.m.

Awesome 80s Run
6:30 a.m., De Anza Cove
Get ready for side ponytails and lots of neon. A totally awesome event is bringing the 80s back! Proceeds from this 5 or 8K race will go to the Free Hugs Project to promote peace and unity and Honor Flight San Diego, which transports veterans to Washington DC to visit memorials dedicated to the wars they fought in. Entry to the race costs $43 ahead of time or $45 day of. Participants will be awarded a working Rubik’s cube medal at the end of the course. For those that are on that post-race high, keep the party going at Tin Roof in the Gaslamp. Classic 80s jams will be blasting from the speakers as racers enjoy refreshing after-race drinks and brunch.

and the best for last!
