Looking for something to do this weekend?

If Roll Out the Barrels isn't your thing, there's plenty more going on around SLO County this weekend.

Cruisin' Morro Bay takes to the streets for most of the weekend along the coast, with a Cruise Night from 6-8 p.m. Friday and Show and Shine and awards from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Sunday. Attendance is free. Stroll among the cool old cars along Morro Bay Boulevard and nearby streets and then enjoy some time at the city's waterfront, restaurants and shops. Call 805-772-4467 for more info.

If you missed last weekend's kite festival in Morro Bay -- or it whet your palette for more -- Paso Robles is hosting Kite Fest 2007, where nationally ranked kite fliers perform to narrations and music. There are demos of dual and quad lines, a candy drop and more. Free. 2-5 p.m. Saturday at Barney Schwartz Park, at 2970 Union Road. Call 805-237-3988 for more info.

For the kids (and adult kids), Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, when stores across the country give away comic books. Locally, Captain Nemo Comics and Games at 563 Higuera St. in SLO (805-544-6366) is participating. For other locations, check

Being the first Sunday of the month, Art in the Park takes over Dinosaur Park in Shell Beach, just north of Pismo. Booths with art and other items and live music take over the scenic waterfront park, perfect for a relaxing stroll.

Saturday is also Cinco de Mayo, so another tempting option is just to grab a comfortable spot, order up some margaritas and let the week slowly fade away.
