What’s Happening in Lamorinda this Weekend – May 14-15, 2016

May 12, 2016

There are a few family friendly events happening in our community this weekend, so here’s a quick roundup:

Saturday, May 14th

  • Walnut Creek is holding a Pet Fair in the newly updated Broadway Plaza. There is a one-mile pet walk that begins at 9:30am. There will be adoptions, rescue groups, vendors and booths all along Broadway Plaza from 10am – 4pm. My kids love to go and pet other peoples animals, and I love to come home to a pet-free house.
  • The Lafayette Rotary is holding their annual Concert at the Res from 11am to 3pm. There will be food and drinks available for purchase. Kids from local school bands and theater groups will be performing.  There is a playground and restrooms nearby. Parking at the res is can be challenging, so it might be best to park down on the street and walk up the giant hill to the res.

Sunday, May 15th

  • Orinda Doggone Fun Fest – Orinda Community Center Park – 2pm-4pm. If you loved the Lafayette Dog Parade as much as we did, here’s a chance to get more dog fun without the pouring rain. Dog trick contest, agility and search and rescue demonstrations. We don’t have a dog, but again my kids can’t get enough of other peoples dogs.

Have a great weekend! Hope to see you out and about!

Garret’s sister recently got married and we took the opportunity to get a family photo with the four of us all dressed up… nailed it.
