Weekend Fun – Raining or Not!
Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Next weekend is one of those blips that awake us from our winter doldrums. It’s Valentine’s Day and a holiday weekend, so it’s a good excuse and a little extra time to explore the Coast.

We’re in the midst of the amazing Grey Whale migration, which you can enjoy from shore or at sea. Whale exhibits are at Ford & Kelley House in Mendocino and at MacKerricher State Park in Fort Bragg. In addition to the beautiful flowers blooming, the scale model train is running at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. Crab season is also in full swing, so you can enjoy a multitude of crab dishes at local restaurants or buy fresh crab from the boats in Noyo Harbor. Mendocino celebrates the Chinese New Year with a parade and the annual fund-raiser dinner for the Kwan Tai Temple. Of course, there are Valentine’s Day restaurant and lodging specials, plus annual fund-raisers such as the Kiwanis Diamond Dinner. For activities with less calories, there are poetry readings and an artist open house.  Come out an enjoy a fun-filled weekend on the Coast. (Event details are posted on our Current Events page.)
