In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music.

The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.

How the ropes course is enjoyed is entirely up to each person—participants can push themselves to the limit or just spend an afternoon on the oversized playground built for joy and laughs. Choose to start the adventure on the ground or the low-ropes course, or tight walk straight across to the high-ropes challenge. The ropes course can go from two to 35 feet in the air, but no matter how high you go, safety is ensured through harnesses, helmets, ropes, and other precautions. Once tight-rope walking is successfully mastered, fly down to the ground on the zip lines, practice conquering inclines on the challenge climbing tower, or make clockwork out of the massive pendulum swing. There must be a minimum of four people per session, so if you can’t convince your scared sisters and nervous nephews to join, you'll be paired up with new, random friends.

Even at 2,500 feet in the air, you may have never have felt as still as you do inside one of Skysurfer's balloons. It's quiet—"There's no noise from engines," one passenger remarked—and balloons follow the wind's lead instead of resisting it, making the colorful aircraft's motion hardly noticeable. And because there are no windows between you and the sky, as team member Kaleena Brundage says, "You can reach out and feel the clouds that you're next to."

Skysurfer's team of FAA-certified pilots, many of whom have been with the company since its inception more than 35 years ago, boast a perfect safety record. They embark on two flights daily, one around sunrise over Temecula wine country, and one at sunset in Del Mar. Each flight can accommodate up to 12 people in the balloons' roomy wicker baskets, which are large enough for each passenger to comfortably stand at the basket's side and look out over the Pacific Ocean and surrounding countryside. Pilots pour chilled champagne to celebrate the excursion, each of which lasts from 45 to 60 minutes depending on conditions and the balloon's curfew.

Children tucked inside giant plastic hamster balls giggle as they roll across the water. Meanwhile, a quartet bounds and flips in near-unison on their own personal trampolines. Though these acts would fit right into an avant garde circus, you'll also find them at the sprawling San Diego Kids Expo & Fair on the Del Mar Fairgrounds. In keeping with the event's mission to highlight local kid-friendly businesses, many of these activities are organized by area merchants. Military-grade laser tag games and a rock-climbing wall, among other attractions, beckon visitors of all ages to lose themselves in child-like wonder and the hope that maybe the lawn will eventually just mow itself.

Besides activities, the expo hall houses more than 150 exhibitors. In rows of booths, dance teachers, soccer coaches, and local chefs from Cooking 4 Life each discuss their craft. The focus on childhood health and education also extends to four performance stages, which become stomping grounds for martial-arts demonstrations and kid-friendly musical acts. Through this yearly celebration, the Expo aims to raise awareness (and funds) for local music and arts programs.
