Horseshoes and horsepower plus music by two lakes

This Sunday is Father's Day, and if father and child are both of legal drinking age, one fun way to celebrate is the Father’s Day Horseshoe competition and barbecue at Cass Winery. Sign up with Erin at or call at 805-227-2888.

If you and Dad are more comfortable poking around under the hood, head to Pismo Beach for the three-day Pismo Beach Classic Car Show, which takes over the town with more than 1,200 classic cars. New this year is a different kind of horsepower -- the Budweiser Clydesdales will be clomping around town and showing off for pictures and petting. Find out more about all the festitivies in our story in Ticket or at

You can also make a weekend of family bonding at the Live Oak Music Festival, which is near Lake Cachuma in Santa Barbara County but reputedly well worth the drive. The Tribune's Pat Pemberton writes about the festival in Ticket this week and takes a look at the local bands in the lineup. You can also call 805-781-3020 for information.

To wind down from the work week and kick off the weekend, head to Bianchi Winery Friday at 6 p.m. for a lakeside concert with FUNK:30. Pack a picnic or pick up something from the deli case. Patio seating is limited, so bring lawn chairs or blankets. No outside beverages allowed. Reservations suggested. $20/per person or $10/per lakeside member. Call 805-226-9922 ext. 31.
