Events: Top things to do this weekend

Some great ideas for San Diego county residents this weekend from the Union-Tribune San Diego:

Art Alive

Have you ever been so inspired by a piece of art that you rushed home and designed a floral arrangement based on it? What, you haven’t?

Well, some local floral designers do this every year for Art Alive and it’s pretty spectacular. The weekend event is the San Diego Museum of Art’s biggest fundraiser for good reason. Roses, daisies, ranunculus, tulips and many other types of plants and flowers are interpreted to resemble art in the museum’s collection. And with patrons often showing up in floral dresses, the whole event is nothing but lovely.

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Flower After Hours is from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday San Diego Museum of Art, 1450 El Prado, Balboa Park. $15 and $5 for ages 7 through 17. (619) 232-7931 or sdmart.org.

Last chance: Butterfly Jungle

Fallbrook Avocado Festival 2012Every year, San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park sets up a warm and colorful exhibit featuring thousands of butterflies flying around. And after this weekend it will be gone until next year.

So grab your most colorful clothes and a camera and get ready to get intimate with some Monarchs and Blue Morphos. I admit, I once thought it was sort of gross to have butterflies touch your hair and arms, but I recently went to Butterfly Jungle and it was pretty great, kind of like walking in a fairy tale, minus the bad guys.

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Saturday. San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park, 5500 San Pasqual Valley Road, Escondido. $32 for ages 3 to 11, $42 for ages 12 and over; parking is $7 to $15; sdzsafaripark.org.

Fallbrook Avocado Festival

Guacamole is pretty much the best thing, ever.

Celebrate the fruit from which it’s made at Fallbrook’s 26th annual festival. Along with booths and booths of guacamole and other avocado-related treats, there will also be contests, carnival rides, live music and dance and a lot of people wearing green.

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Main Street, Fallbrook. Free; (760) 728-5845 or fallbrookchamberofcommerce.org.
