In Southern California, autumn is the best time to plant everything from flowers to vegetables. Why not get your garden off to the best start possible with advice and ideas at Fall Fest, a family-friendly harvest celebration in San Juan Capistrano packed with garden programs, bluegrass music, gourmet food trucks, craft beer and wine, and hands-on activities for kids?
Here’s your perfect day on October 14: Hop on a Metrolink train to avoid traffic and parking hassles and read a great gardening book or blog on the way to the festival. Adults can travel all day on Saturday or Sunday for just $10. Have kids 5 years old and under? Each paying adult can bring up to three kids free. Bring a non-perishable food donation and get a free pumpkin (while supplies last).
Take the free shuttle from the train station. When you get to the festival, show your Metrolink ticket and get in for free – a $5 savings.
Before you return home, stroll around the beautiful town, Metrolink ticket in hand, and take advantage of Metrolink discounts at restaurants and shops. Your $10 Metrolink ticket can easily pay for itself.
