Things to Know: What's Happening in Pacifica This Weekend

Before heading for the cotton candy at the county fair, here are three stellar events to know about that are happening in Pacifica.

The San Mateo County Fair has a long list of activitie that begin on Saturday, but don't miss out on what's going on right here in Pacifica. Here are three events you should know about.

Rummage Sale

This Saturday and Sunday, the Pacifica Historical Socety will host a rummage sale of furniture, books, art, and housewares that Pacificans have donated. The items fill up an entire floor of the Little Brown Church at 1850 Francisco Blvd, which will benefit from the sale. The Society is currently renovating the building, and has already raised $300,000, which has gone toward installing gutters, retoring butresses, installing a handicap lift, among other additions.

The church was built in 1910, making it the second oldest building in town. The Society his more than half-way through with fundraising efforts, but still have a long way to go. Following this weekend, the church will hold sales throughout the summer. The Society's president, Kathleen Manning, told Patch, "it's a chance for people to see what we've done," while also rummaging to their hearts' content.

What's Growing

The Pacifica Garden Club will be hosting the 15th annual Gardens by the Sea tour that winds through verdant local gardens from 11am to 4pm. The event also includes a plant sale, raffle prizes, and a silent auction of rare plants. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 day of tour. The walk begins at Mildred Owen Concert Hall at 1220 Linda Bar Blvd.

Tomorrow is also a work day at Pacifica Gardens at 830 Rosita Road from 10am to 2pm.

Book Sale

The Pacifica Friends of the Library will hold its semi-annual book sale today and Saturday at Sharp Park Library. Today the sale will run until 6pm, and tomorrow from 10am to 4pm. Ready for sale are thousands of paperbacks, many of which will go for 50 cents each, as well as audiobooks and hardbacks. Last year PFOL made more than $14,000 to support adult library programs, Summer Reading, the Quick Pick Collection, the Homework Center, and the needs assessment.

"The church was built in 1910, making it the second oldest building in town." I think it might be third-oldest, after the Sanchez Adobe and the Salada Beach Cafe, formerly known as Anderson's. Welcome to town, Mr. Wiles.
