Stuff going on Labor Day weekend in Huntington Beach

Labor Day weekend is only a week away, are you staying in town? If so, I’ve got a couple of ideas for you to keep you entertained next weekend.

First on Saturday night the 5th, I’m going to be going to the Bethany Owen show “One Voice”. This woman is full of talent. She is a one woman show doing impersonations of many female celebrities. The show is full of comedy and vocal tributes to these superstars. Bethany is a HB local, so come out and show her some support. The show is at 8pm at the Star Performing Arts Center in Fountain Valley, only $20 per person. You can get more info about Bethany at And to buy tickets, the best way is to visit the site: The number is 714-418-2499 if you prefer. Hope to see some of you there!

Then on Sunday, September 6 from 2pm to 6pm, why not get on down to opening day of Oktoberfest at Old World Village Festival Hall. It is a great deal at $10 which includes dinner. Also that day you will enjoy Dachshund Races, German music, prizes & drawings and so much more. Tickets are being sold through the Therapeutic Riding Center and you can find more info & get tickets on their site: Please check them out, they are such a worthwhile organization!

In between these activities, don’t forget down at the pier is the annual Baordfest. You will get surf, skate, snow all in one festival. Plus music, fashion and interactive exhibits. It runs the 3 days of the long weekend, and you can get more info at
Finally, if you find yourself downtown during the weekend, or any time for that matter, pop in to Gallaghers – they are on Walnut just east of Main (their address shows as 300 PCH, #113 however). This little Irish pub is a nice hang out for locals. The new owners have brought in a new chef and the food is worth a visit! Plus there are awesome beers as well as nightly shows (music, karaoke, comedy,etc). You can find their whole entertainment schedule at their site:

Have fun what ever you choose to do Labor Day weekend (and be safe!)

Huntington Beach local, Bethany Owen (Woman of 1001 Voices & Faces) will be performing local Labor Day weekend.

A shout out for one of our HB locals: Bethany Owen is called the Woman of 1001 Voices and Faces. She is a rare and unique blend of talent to the world of voice impressionists. Her one-woman show "ONE VOICE" celebrates the zany and fun side of celebrity personalities through the use of comedic parody and musical vocal tributes to some of the world's most legendary female superstars of our time. Their look, body language and facial expressions are brought to life through her quick costume and wig changes done right in front of the audience. Check out her show Labor Day weekend (Saturday, Sept 5). You won't want to miss it. You can get all the show details on her website:
