More Things to Do – Make a Weekend of It!

Winter in San Diego is pretty amazing, 72 degrees and sunny – and palm trees!  This is a premier two day show, so you will want to come in early and stay for the weekend. Get some sand between your toes at the beach or enjoy any of the other wonderful things to do in the area! A premier artist will be conducting pre-show classes that you will not want to miss:
