Sunday April 3, Paws N’ Claws Golf Tournament & Dinner  The Los Cabos Humane Society presents their 11th Annual Paw N’ Claws Golf Tournament & Dinner fundraising event to help continue to provide the benefits of a decreasing pet population and a cleaner environment in Los Cabos. The event was first created a decade ago to assist the tireless work their staff does in the Los Cabos pet community. Because there is no governmental agency to address the problem of homeless domestic animals living on the streets of Los Cabos, The Los Cabos Humane Society operates as a non-profit organization which exists as the only form of animal protection and control in the Southern Baja California region of both tourist-popular San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. The LCHS Center only has a few paid staff members. The rest of the work (pet adoption, neutering) is accomplished by hard-working volunteers from both communities. The open golf tournament will take place at Palmilla followed by dinner at Don Sanchez Restaurant in San Jose del Cabo. For tickets, please call Margarita Partridge (624) 156-6502 or email tropimargarita@prodigy.net.mx.

Many schools celebrate the day and parents are invited. There are no classes or school on Dia de Los Ninos, April 30, and in San Lucas, parents will generally take their kid’s to Medano Beach, while San Jose del Cabo holds a small parade and children’s activities at the main plaza in front of the historic Catholic Church downtown. Children’s Day has been celebrated annually in Mexico since 1925. Children in Mexico are recognized as an important part of society so the day focuses on the importance of loving, accepting and appreciating the young children of every community, city and state within the Republic of Mexico.   Thursday April 21-Sunday April 24, Rancho Pescadero Culinary Weekend The cozy beachfront boutique hotel , Rancho Pescadero Resort, which is located on the Pacific Coast 20 minutes south of Todos Santos is hosting their spring season’s Culinary Weekend event that starts on Thursday April 21 and culminates Sunday, April 24.
