Let’s Enjoy Tijuana: Great Events in September 2016

It’s September! And as all moms and dads out there will understand, we are in full back to school mode. Our Worldschool approach means that I’ve been busy selecting curriculum and seeking out fun and educational opportunities (hence the late post). But fear not, Tijuana has been busy planning several not-to-be-missed events throughout the city.

Ever wonder how much there is to do in Tijuana? You can check out the 105 Kid Friendly Things To Do in Tijuana list to find out!

September also means that the city is putting on its patriotic best and preparing to celebrate the “Grito de Independencia”. So come on out, celebrate with fun loving Tijuanenses, it’s going to be a great month.

So, Let’s Enjoy Tijuana!

As always, the amazing thing about this list is that it is but a small sample of all the fun events planned around Tijuana. Really, the Casa de la Cultura, Mini City, El Trompo Interactive Science Museum, Pasaje Rodriguez, getting lost in one of the huge Mexican candy stores, are all just some of the opportunities to enjoy in Tijuana. Walk around and discover just how family friendly and child friendly Tijuana really is! You will not regret a day in this vibrant city. And, if you get hungry, kid friendly Telefonica Gastro Park (food trucks from heaven) has you covered.
