:: get your weekend on ::

This weekend there are tons of fun things going on in your area. I unfortunately don't have a long weekend- so I wont get to everything. But here are a few things that I think you should check out if you're in the area and have some extra time. Pack up your sunscreen your headed outdoors this weekend for some festivals.

 J-POP SUMMIT FESTIVAL is a pop culture-themed street fair that covers the grounds of Post Street from Webster to Laguna and the Peace Plaza of Japantown, San Francisco. The weekend hours are Saturday Aug 24 - 11:00am - 6:00pm and Sunday Aug 25 - 11:00am - 6:00pm.This is a pretty       Japanese-esque festival so bring your Hello Kitty backpack and be prepared to stock up on hair accessories and yummy food.

Have you been itching to find some new end tables or a new trunk? how about an older one... like vintage/antique. That's my favorite word(s).  I have told you before here, that I love antique shopping- so I might have to check this out. This is the 48 annual Niles Antique Fair held near Fremont. Plus tomorrow they are having a classic car show and Sunday they will have a few live bands. The serious shoppers go around 6AM, so get there early before all the good things get snatched up!

So, whether you reside closer to the North Bay or the South Bay... there is an art festival located in your neck of the woods.I love art festivals because there is always so many different items to look at, from all different walks of life. There are so many talented artisans, from paintings to photography, ceramics and jewelry to unique sculptures. Palo Alto is having there big art festival this weekend from 10- 6 both days in their main drag off of University. Tiburon is also having theirs this weekend and it will be from 11-6 both days and is situated on historic Ark Row in downtown. (cost is $5)

enjoy your weekend
