wwlBeach, swimsuits, ice cream and longer days – no wonder we love June. June marks the first days of summer so bring the dinners, galas, concerts and parties outside and enjoy a mood-boosting cocktail. San Diego and Tijuana offer a variety of summer events to attend and enjoy so go out there and celebrate that summer is finally here.

A burst of color awaits you at the annual Color Me Rad 5K on June 8. Get ready to start out the run clean and then go on to be coated with color bombs until your face, shirt and body are tie-dyed. Instead of running FROM something, get ready to run FOR something at this year’s Color Me Rad. www.colormerad.com
