Food lovers rejoice: rather than traverse the town in search of a variety of cuisine, they can save time and shoe leather by attending the Valley Center Gourmet Food Truck Festival. The second annual culinary extravaganza—sporting a Hawaiian theme this year—features mouth-watering platefuls from food trucks such as Crepes Bonaparte, Dang Brother Pizza, and Hoangie's Bahn Mi, dished out alongside pours from Hess Brewing and California Fruit Wine. While adults enjoy of-age libations, youngsters can partake of activities including pony rides and face painting. Live music and DJ performances underscore each sip, swirl, and perfectly tuned bite.

The owners of Corona Pumpkin Farm weren?t setting out to build a business in the fall of 2009. They just wanted to cultivate fresh, healthy produce for their family. So they began sowing seeds in box gardens, nourishing the soil with compost from chickens that also bore fresh eggs, and the occasional golden one. Eventually, the chickens? bounty outgrew the boxed gardens, and the humble family endeavor flourished into Corona Pumpkin Farm, which sits atop more than an acre of land. Now the farmers nurture more than 50 types of pumpkins for eating and carving, as well as a cornucopia of fruits and veggies that includes three types of corn and pick-your-own boysenberries. Along with the produce, they raise chickens and turkeys for meat, gather eggs from the coop, and sometimes barter with neighbors for beef and pork.

To show their respect for Mother Nature and their own health, they prefer to use organic solutions first, avoiding chemicals on their garden grub whenever possible. But visitors don?t flock to the farm just for the fresh, healthy fare; they come to pick their own pumpkins, meander through the 10-foot-high stalks that fill a half-acre corn maze, and enjoy other seasonal activities, such as cuddling baby chicks, zooming down an inflatable slide, painting pumpkins, and crafting personalized trick-or-treat bags.

The scent of chlorine fills the air as kids sprint from slide to pool and back again, shrieking in delight each time they splash into the water. Guests stop by The Fill Station for refreshments like a family four pack of cheeseburgers. The park offers both daily admission passes and season passes for the whole family.

Located on the entertainment-rich grounds of the Lake Perris Fairgrounds, the Perris Auto Speedway has housed an 8,000-seat temple to transmissions and high-octane action since 1996. When the half-mile clay oval track hosts the Sokola Shootout––with USAC/CRA Sprint cars and California Lighting Sprints––it will be a night full of roaring engines, fast laps, and the manly musk of combustion-engine fumes. Races feature a field of open-wheeled automobiles piloted by drivers protected only by their wits and a roll cage.

It can take a long time to build up the courage to skydive?and then, whoosh, the big moment passes in literal moments. Luckily, Skydive Perris lets you draw the experience out a bit. The company's Sensory Overload package, for instance, allows fledgling jumpers to try two indoor skydiving sessions in a 95-foot tunnel, followed by a very outdoor tandem jump from an airplane that soars to 12,500 feet. The instructor won't pull the cord until 5,000 feet, giving guests an entire minute to experience a free fall.

After alighting, visitors head down to the onsite restaurant, Bombshelter Bar & Grill, to watch a DVD of their flight on a big-screen TV. As their adrenaline cools on the windowsill, they can unwind on the bar's patio or with a dip in the adjacent pool before turning in for the night at one of the bunkhouses. If guests find themselves dreaming about the high-octane experience, they might consider returning for training in solo free falls or advanced group jumps, which teach participants how to form their bodies into patterns spelling "Look Ma, No Gravity!"
