Garden Party of the Century

8 Oct

Anything that has this name, of course I had to go! Since this year is Balboa Park’s centennial anniversary, they are doing a bunch of special things all year long, and a big floral party was one of them. I unfortunately had to miss most of it, but did get to see this one small part of it. You can’t go wrong with flowers!

MotorCars on MainStreet Car Show

30 Sep

I love cars.  If y’all haven’t figured that out already… I particularly love old cars.  I mean…I love super fancy cars too, but your average car now is definitely not as awesome as your average vintage car.  Therefore, vintage car shows are particularly fantastic, such as this one.  It’s the Coronado car show (although not the Coronado Speed Festival, which actually took place two weekends ago, and I missed due to being at Disneyland for Dapper Day!  So many things), and there were so many amazing vintage cars!  It was such a fun car show.

Coronado Flower Show

28 Sep

As I mentioned in my last post, I LOVE flowers.  I have never been to a show that was just flowers, so I was pretty excited to go to the Coronado Flower Show.  It was AMAZING!!  I’ve never seen so many flowers in one place, and there was a great variety of different types of displays, including tiny arrangements, table settings, children’s creations, etc.  There was even some live music!  This is my first post out of two, because I have so many photos!

Fashion Week San Diego Spring Showcase

14 Sep

Hey, I managed to get the spring showcase photos done before the actual fashion week! Just barely though… I was hoping to be able to go to fashion week this year, possibly as a photographer, but I was trying to build up my portfolio before I applied, and then never got around to applying. Now there are about a million things going on at the same time, so it’s not so convenient…will make more of an effort next year! Since I am on the email list though, I found out about all the wonderful events they had throughout the year, and while I unfortunately missed most of them, I did get to go to this spring showcase, which was so much fun! At least I’m not totally missing out this year 🙂  Fashion Week San Diego starts October 1st, for any of you that might be interested.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

8 Sep

Obviously I’m quite behind on these, but better late than never, right? I’ve never been to a St. Patrick’s Day parade before, so it was a lot of fun. There were some new, interesting things that I hadn’t seen at previous parades I have been to. It was great to see some actual Irish people/things, as opposed to what I normally see on St. Patrick’s day 😉

Spring Busker Festival

7 Sep

I would have liked to have been able to see a little bit more of this. There were some quite talented street performers! It was a fun event; being able to see various street performers in one location. I went to the evening show and then the second day show. The street performers were all very talented and great at engaging the audience. I was very entertained! 🙂

28th Annual Koi Show and Water Garden Expo

6 Sep

So koi are pretty cool. I think most people would agree with that. 🙂 I am not a koi enthusiast or anything, but it was really fun to go to this show. Koi are fascinating, and I had no idea how many different types there are. There were some very unique looking ones, as well as sizes ranging from babies to GIGANTIC ones. I believe the largest was 70 lbs, although don’t quote me on that. It was definitely huge though. I’m thinking I might have to start a koi family…
