Big Fun in Huntington Beach this weekend


Huntington Beach is the place to be this weekend. So much is going on. Here are some highlights: Project Save Our Surf is having a 24 hour surfing event (south of the pier) which is a full on two day festival of surfing, live music, film, guest speakers, and eco-friendly vendors. It starts at noon on Saturday and closing ceremonies are noon on Sunday. Live music, guest speakers, and eco-friendly vendors.

Also on Saturday & Sunday, stroll up Main to enjoy the annual "Chili at the Beach" family fun event starting at 11am. Activities will include a Chili Cook-off (Saturday only), Charity Raffle with prizes galore, (benefiting CHOC), a Business Expo, Special Attractions, Children’s Activities, Street Performers, Father’s Day specials, Auto and Motorcycle exhibits, a Surf City Art Show, and much more. When there on Saturday, make sure to visit the booth by Tommy Pastrami . They are teaming up with Surf City Kiwanis. Their chili is called "Tommy Pastrami's Good Time Save the World Kiwanis Chili".... now that's a mouthful. And I heard it is going to be some tasty stuff!!

On Sunday afternoon make your way up Beach Blvd to check out the " Pups & Pinot" wine/food tasting, 2-5pm. This casual event will be held at the Newland House (19820 Beach) and will feature the finest wines from Napa Co., Sonoma Co. and will be paired with our favorite foods from Lazy Dog, Fred's, The Hilton Waterfront and more. Bid on fabulous bargains at the silent auction tables. Week long stay trips in vacation homes from Sonoma to a few days in Catalina, home decor, gift cards, fantastic wines, pet pampering items to name a few. Listen to jazz, meet Ed McCabe in person (the closest thing to a dog whisperer in The OC), and enjoy a dog parade. Feel free to bring your dog, pet sitting is available! Proceeds to go to A Leg Up Animal Rescue. All guests receive a free gift! All for only $30. Just show up!!

Now with the wild and crazy weekend, hopefully you don't get yourself in any kind of trouble, but if you happen to, who you gonna call??? One local specialist is Rosanne Faul . She is an Orange County Criminal Defense Lawyer to help those finding themselves in the unfortunate position of being charged with DUI, assault, possession of marijuana, driving offenses and other misdemeanors and even felonies. I'm sure none of that applies to you, but just in case..... or maybe someone you know, you can get ahold of her at 949-275-6377. Tell her you are a friend of TheLocalHB.com and she'll be happy to help you out.

Since we are on this lovely topic, what if that bad thing did happen and you went and got yourself arrested? Before you can get Rosanne to help you out, you might need bailing out. And that is where Awesome Bail Bonds comes in. The owner, Rod Frontino, is a long time friend and very good at what he does. He can take care of all kinds of bonds and is available 24/7. Maybe some day someone you know will need this service... keep his number handy: 888-877-BAIL (2245).
