Weekend Fun Guide | Inland Empire Weekend Events 4/26-4/28/13



Hi Friends & Neighbors –

Another month is ending, can you believe how quickly this year is going by?  Sometimes we just have to force ourselves to take a step back and reflect on how much has happened in one year.  I’ll definitely be doing some reflecting this weekend.  My favorite way to reflect?  Get away from my desk and enjoy some time outside!

I hope you’ll all get the chance to do the same and take advantage of the gorgeous weather this weekend.  Check out this our list of great events and activities happening this weekend in the Inland Empire.

Remember to follow IEShineOn.com on Facebook and Twitter for giveaway announcements, daily updates about new events and good times happening in the Inland Empire.

Till next time…
