Ready to plan your week of Things To Do? September in Orange County has lots to offer! We’ve shared some of our favorite happenings this week! Still looking for more? Head to our Event Calendar in the link below.
Surf City Nights
Starts at 5 p.m. at Downtown Huntington Beach
This Tuesday 09/11/18 attend Surf City Nights, the weekly street fair and certified farmers market down in Huntington Beach, proved so popular with Orange Countians that officials had to expand the already-sizable shindig over to the Strand on 5th Street. What that means for us is even more vendors to peruse, ranging from jewelry to clothing to home decor to weird knick-knacks; even more street performers and musicians, and even more tasty food selections to sample. So with that much ground to cover, we think it’s best to get there right for the 5 p.m. start time. Wear your walking shoes. Event ends at 9 p.m.

14th Annual Japanese Classic Car Show
Starts at 9:00 a.m. at 386 E Shoreline Dr in Long Beach
This Saturday 09/15/18 the Long Beach Marina Green Park in beautiful downtown Long Beach. Located alongside the same roads used for the annual Long Beach Grand Prix, this location was chosen for its spacious accommodations: we can fit much more than our usual 400-car limit, we can offer more than our traditional 55+ car manufactures and car parts, special clothing and Japanese “Matsuri” vendor booths, and reasonably-priced parking is plentiful. The epicenter of the Japanese classic-car movement is the annual JCCS event in Long Beach. Every year the owners of the cars that come to JCCS raise their game. Japanese cars are now established as classics, not just “old cars,” and we treat them as such. There will always be customs and modified cars, but there is also a renewed interest in originality and restoration. The hobby is evolving and growing in all directions. Event ends at 3:00 p.m.
