Moms, Dogs, and Fiestas: Ideas to help combine the three this weekend

With Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s day so close together you may be looking to combine your activities.  Well there is no shortage of things to do in the Inland Empire this weekend, so here are a few ideas to help to combine moms, dogs, and fiestas:
1.       Take your mother to a Mexican food restaurant for brunch, lunch, or dinner and your dog can come with you.  Here are some dog friendly ideas:
               Mi Tortilla Mexican Grill in Riverside
               Gabbi’s Mexican Kitchen in Orange
               The Bank, Mexican Restaurant and Bar in Temecula
2.       Take your mother and your pooch to see a local Parade.  Corona is holding its 40th annual Cinco de Mayo parade and fiesta this Saturday, May 7th. 
For more information, check out Corona’s event webpage or this Press-Enterprise article
3.       Take your mother and dachshund to Fairmont park in Riverside for ‘Wienerfest, Wienies n Wheels’ event on Saturday, May 7th, to enjoy wiener dog races, a car show, and more.  This event is being hosted by Sunny Oasis Dachshund Rescue, a local dog rescue, so you can check out their website for more information.
4.       Maybe your mother and/or your dog is a little too tough for dachshunds, well then we have the event for you.  The 5th annual Cinco de Mayo Super Bully Show/Car Show is being held in San Jacinto (on Soboba Casino grounds), this Saturday, May 7th.  This event has it all from ABKC shows and weight pulling to car shows and rap contests.  For more information, check out
5.       If you are in, or will be in, Orange County and looking for something to do with your dog and/or your mother, check out the Fullerton Market, which is open every Thursday from 4 -8:30 p.m. They will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Thursday, May 5th, by featuring Mexican brews in their Beer garden and hosting live musical groups playing Folklorico to Meringue for your listening pleasure.  For more information on this particular event, check out this OC Register event posting. Or for more information on the Fullerton Market, check out their website

 Enjoy a safe and loving Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day with your dog this weekend!
