Last Saturday after our Harbor Excursion, Skyler and I grabbed some lunch at Bub’s Dive Bar & Grill (I will be writing about it later in a downtown restaurants post) and walked around downtown for a bit.
We checked out Petco Park (again) and just walked around the entire stadium/park area. They have what they call Park at the Park on non-home game days and specific hours on home game days where you can relax and enjoy the view inside the park for free. They have a little tea ball field that is incredible so we watched some kiddos play for a while and they have a picnic hill and the bleacher beach area is open. It is just super cool to experience that whole area when there aren’t mass crowds of people swarming.
Once we finished up there, we headed home to rest and get cleaned up to go out later that night. Seaport Village was holding it’s annual Spring Busker Festival, which if you’re like me and you don’t know what Busker means, it is referring to street performers. Seaport Village is exactly what it sounds like: a village right on the water and it is very close to where we live. It is made up of lots of different shops and restaurants and is so quaint and cute. I will be writing more about it later because we are going to spend some time there when we have company in a couple of weeks.
During the Busker Festival, these street performers are there all weekend doing little shows for the family all day Saturday and Sunday. There was juggling, dancing, music, comedy, magic, etc. I really wish we would have spent some time there during the day too, but we did make it down for the last two acts of the Saturday night Buskers After Dark. We didn’t make it in time for the acrobats, but we did get to see two comedians with juggling acts. One was even a fire juggler! It was a lot of fun with a DJ and the restaurants/bars were open. A very energetic vibe and a fun (FREE) way to spend an evening!
