The Park Rangers are more than happy to show you everything that the Lopez Lake Preserve has to offer. This Saturday isn’t any different and there are 2 cool events for the whole family. We try to make our Enjoy a SLO Weekend feature a showcase for FREE events in the area but sometimes a small fee is worth it. So, if you want to escape the “city” head to Lopez Lake for a morning, evening, or all day nature feast.

Enjoy a SLO Weekend…The Classic at Pismo Beach Car Show

Pismo Beach will be all revved up this weekend with shining beauties. Come out for all of the festivities, see some amazing rides, watch them cruise old-school style, and spend the day at the beach. The Classic at Pismo Beach Car Show celebrates it’s 28th season this weekend and invites all of us to spend the weekend with them. Come early, the streets are blocked off in multiple places and this beach hamlet will be buzzing and leaving a lack of parking spaces for the masses.

Check out the schedule for the weekend…

Not sure you want to go to the car show? Head over to Cal Poly for their graduation or check out a free outdoor concert! Whatever you choose, get outside because it is beautiful.
