On tap this weekend

DiscoverSLO is a little late getting to weekend plans this week, but first and foremost, don't forget about Mom!

At the very least, she deserves a card and a phone call or visit. If you want to give her a real treat, consider Mother's Day at the Ranch, a benefit for Arts Obispo at Santa Margarita Ranch from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Sunday. There's spa treatments and dinner (additional cost) as well as music by Inga Swearingen and Trio, arts and crafts for the kids, train rides and more. Admission is $20-$25, $30-$50 with dinner and $80 for the spa package. Call 805-543-3414.

If you're looking for something a little lighter on the pocketbook, head to Templeton Park Saturday for the free Day in the Shade: A Celebration of the Arts from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be fine arts as well as crafts, food, wine tasting, live music and entertainment. Call 805-237-4490.

I'll be heading just north of the county line for the ninth-annual Parkfield Bluegrass Festival, which goes today through Sunday, with performances, workshops, jamming, camping and more. Tickets are $15-$30, half that for teens and free for kids. Camping is $8-$12. Check out who's playing here and call 805-937-5895 or 805-720-2427 for more info.

Want to stay more low-key? Stop by the Avila Valley Barn (scroll down for more info), which opens for the season this weekend.
