Another weekend filled with fun things to do and beautiful weather!  It’s a three day weekend for most and we gave you some fun ideas, or vacation camp options, for Columbus Day here.

In addition to those, check our Upcoming Events to find out all the happenings and details. We’ve added a nifty new feature that allows you to share, “Recommend” on Facebook or Tweet any of our listed events! We work really hard to give you the most comprehensive events listing around, so if you attend an event because you learned about it from Barista Kids, make sure to give us a shout out.
