The parade...

Well, here's a fun sight from Kensington's parade today.
There were some cool vintage cars. Kids walked with their schools. Businesses decorated various vehicles. The Mayor of San Diego was in it - I could have made better note of which other electeds and wannabee electeds were there. I was better at that in a past career.

And there were chickens.

A parade - Free today

It's Memorial Day, and apparently the Kensington neighborhood celebrates with their "Holiday at Home" parade on Marlborough Avenue (10:30 to 11:30 a.m.).
I've seen posters for the Holiday at Home events around Adams Avenue for weeks. I think I've missed my chance at stopping by the community pancake breakfast, though (which probably wasn't free, anyway).

Free museums from BOA - Coming Up

Bank of America customers get free admission to select museums on the first weekend of the month. You can figure out what's free in San Diego, or in whatever city you are heading to at museums.bankofamerica.com, which can be kind of a clunky site to navigate.

Visit the Birch Aquarium at Scripps in La Jolla (open between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.) or take the kids to the New Children's Museum (open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, and from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday) June 5 and June 6.

If you are hitting the road, the Riverside Art Museum will be free for BOA cardholders Saturday, as is the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana. You can also try the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach,  or Muzeo in Anaheim.
Heading to L.A.? Stop in LACMA or the Autry Center of the American West.

Art Around Adams promises "1.6 miles" of music and art when "more than 75" businesses along the Adams Avenue area from 30th Street to Vista Street provide performance and gallery space, according to artaroundadams.org.

Sadly, I won't be there to check it out, but if you go, please let me know what I missed.
