May 5, 6, 7 and 8 --- Gator By The Bay
This is our big project for the month of May for the Bon Temps Social Club. Actually it is a year in the planning, and involves hundreds of volunteers. The event draws 20,000 each year, and offers the dancer five music stages from which to choose, with two main stages offering 3,000 sq. ft. tented dance floors at each. The event is situated on mile-long Spanish Landing Park on San Diego Bay directly across the street from San Diego Lindbergh International Airport. The weather in San Diego is particularly nice in May with temps at the bay around 75 degrees, but bring a jacket because when the sun goes down it gets a bit chilly. This is a four-day event which kicks off on Thursday May 5 and concludes on Mother’s Day, May 8. www.gatorbythebay.com.
