Life is sweet this weekend. Case in point, you can learn how to ice a mean cookie and maybe even enter your famous bacon maple cupcakes at the Cupcake Camp San Gabriel Valley Cupcake Contest. Browsing the vendor booths there will be just as sweet, as will hunting for treasure, whistling at classic cars and enjoying a free concert performed by one talented pianist.

Our goal is to make the Get Out planner as reliable as possible, but keep in mind, some events change at the last minute. We advise calling ahead just in case.
