Mission Hills Streetcar Line Walking Tour and Canyon Pics (Video)

24 Sep

Today is the Annual Streetcar Line Tour in Mission Hills. As we set out on our daily walk with Nina and Ralphie, our new rescue dogs, (more on that later) I decided to shoot some photos for you to enjoy. I’ve included some favorite homes, views and fall decor. Also see my Canyon Views Ep. 1 where I spend one minute showing you the beauty and tranquility of my community.

A Walk Along the Streetcar Line Annual Tour 9/24, 1-4pm

16 Sep

Mark Sept. 24th on your calendars and be sure to come join us at the Mission Hills Walking Tour! We’ll take a journey, led by Mission Hills Heritage, back to the early 20th century and explore the old streetcar route that ran through Mission Hills. Pick up some history and learn about early residents of the area, as well as the development spurred by the streetcar line.

To top it all off, Class 1 streetcar No. 138 will be at the event so you can take a look at one of the historic cars that ran on that very line… and imagine what it would be like to see them running again in Mission Hills and San Diego’s other inner city neighborhoods.
You can view the event details on the flier above or here.

San Diego: On Adams Avenue, a big, free street party is coming up

9 Sep

The 30th annual Adams Avenue Street Fair starts Sept. 24 and lasts two days

  (Adams Avenue Business Assn.)

In San Diego, where there’s evidently a general agreement on how to throw a street party, organizers of the 30th annual Adams Avenue Street Fair say they will have more than 60 musical acts to offer at their free event Sept. 24 and 25.

Among the headliners: El Vez, Dengue Fever and a reunion of the San Diego-based band the Beat Farmers. You can find  a detailed list of performers here.

The San Diego event comes a month after the cancellation in Los Angeles of the Sunset Junction Street Fair, a longstanding music festival that was denied permits because of $260,000 in unpaid city fees.

The Sunset Junction event, also 3 decades old, was to have been staged Aug. 27 and 28. The event had grown to include more than 80 bands (performing on a closed-off stretch of Sunset Boulevard in L.A.’s Silver Lake community) and carried a $25 admission charge.

After city officials refused to issue permits for this year’s event, Sunset Junction organizers said on their website that they were “reviewing next steps and will be reporting back soon.”

As for the party in San Diego, Adams Avenue is a commercial street in the Normal Heights neighborhood,  known for its antique stores, eclectic shops and pubs, many modest bungalow homes from the early 20th century and a growing arts scene. Besides music, the program will include beer gardens, carnival rides and scores of food, arts and crafts vendors.

The event, billed as Southern California’s largest free, two-day, all-ages music festival, will run 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Sept. 24 and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sept. 25.

The event is sponsored by the nonprofit Adams Avenue Business Assn., which also stages an annual Roots Fest and a Taste of Adams Avenue event. Bethany Yarbrough, office manager for the business association, said last year’s fair drew an estimated 100,000 people.
