With a full belly, San Juan Capistrano Fiesta Association looks to ramp up the fun
As festive as San Juan Capistrano’s annual Taste of San Juan was, it was only a taste of things to come.
The Feb. 8 event at San Juan Hills Golf Club gave partygoers a chance to sample dishes from some 25 local restaurants and caterers.
It is one of five San Juan Capistrano Fiesta Association events that will lead up to the city’s biggest event, the March 24 Swallows Day Parade and Mercado Street Faire.
This weekend’s Pet Parade
Children ages 5 to 12 are invited to enter their pets in a parade at Los Rios Park, 31747 Los Rios St. Signups are at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 17, with the parade starting at noon. The entry fee is $5 at the park. Pets need to be on a leash or in a cage. Costumes are welcomed, for both pet and owner.
Prizes will be offered for best bird, best domestic or household pet, best costumed pet and owner, best exotic pet and best barnyard or farm animal. The judges also will pick an overall winner. That pet and its owner will be invited to appear in the Swallows Day Parade.
Much more in March
Other upcoming events include the March 17 El Presidente Ball at El Adobe Restaurant, the March 21 Fiesta Grande at the Swallows Inn, the March 23 frog-jumping contest at the Mission Grill, the March 23 Hoos’ Gow Day in the downtown district, and finally, one of America’s biggest non-motorized parades on March 24 celebrating the annual return of swallows that migrate from Argentina to Mission San Juan Capistrano.
