Jewels of the season

Summer

BY CHRISTY HERON

2010

It’s summer! Explore beaches and berries, camps and cooking events, music and more …

T

he 2010 Summer Guide is back and has grown like a weed. I dug deep this year to find not only the usual suspects when it comes to the hottest events and activities all over SLO County, but also new and unique happenings, camps, artistic affairs, concerts, and so much more. I strived this year to provide every detail, so all you have to do is glance at the Guide, choose your adventure, get in your car or on your bike, and be prepared to have fun. Nothing about summer should be difficult. It should be as easy as applying SPF 50 and breathing in that intoxicating smell. It should be about simplicity, sunshine, and minimal planning. That’s where I come in. For more than four years, I’ve been the queen of what’s taking place in SLO County. My advice? Keep the pages clipped on your fridge, make copies for friends and family, and check out our digital version online at newtimesslo.com. Go through the Guide with a highlighter. Events are listed by category, then in order of date. Kids camps are listed by various categories, then in alphabetical order. There’s something for all tastes and budgets. Here’s just a sprinkling: In the mood for strawberries? Immerse yourself in the juicy goodness that is the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival, completely free to attend. Get there early for parking, or take a shuttle. Browse through the hundreds of vendors (the shopping is incredible), then top off your day with succulent strawberries and cream. Want to cook? Attend “Global Gourmet” for just $15 in SLO—or pay a bit more and actually cook with Evan Treadwell of Lido in Shell Beach. Take a workshop at the SLO Botanical Garden for $10 or less: “Turn Your Lawn into a Garden” on May 22 or “Sustainable Landscapes Workshop” on June 7.

School of the Arts Art Camps & Classes

If you want music, there’s a ton, from various shows at beaches throughout SLO County—like PHOTO BY STEVE E. MILLER at the Avila Beach Farmers Market happening every Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. (avilabeachpier.com), at the Cliffs Resort, or during New Times own Music Awards weekend-long extravaganza taking place in August. There’s even an upcoming event celebrating water: slowaterfest.org. What do your kids feel like doing this summer? Attend a camp at a water park? Think sprinkler relays, water balloon wars, or rafting down the lazy river in Paso Robles: ravinewaterpark.com. Are they pirate obsessed? Want to film a movie? Play and learn basketball or soccer with the best? Kids can also become a lifeguard, swim for miles at various pools throughout SLO County, or learn surf till they’re pruny and happily spent. Athletic camps abound and cover the entire spectrum of sports. For families, Kirk Henning puts on incredible “Stories ’Round the Fire” all summer in Cayucos right on the beach for $3. Check out kirkhenning.com. Round out the summer back at Avila Beach in style at the Pops Festival with the SLO Symphony. The point is you have options. That, I promise you. ∆ Christy Heron is New Times’ Calendar Editor, who tries not to let her summer queen crown blind the staff. Contact her at cheron@newtimesslo.com.
