Inland Empire Weekend Events | Weekend Fun Guide 1/31-2/2/14





Hi Friends & Neighbors!

Looks like winter may actually make an appearance in the Inland Empire this weekend! Don’t let the cooler temps and slight (and I mean slight) chance of rain scare you away from doing anything outdoors. Just bring a jacket and an umbrella and have a great time!

The Winter BBQ and Games in Perris sounds like great fun for the entire family, as does the Volcom Peanut Butter and Rail Jam Snowboard Contest in Bear Mountain. Check out the longest, most fun list of weekend events in the Inland Empire.
