  1. Majestic Miss Temecula Valley Scholarship Pageant 2015

    The Majestic Miss Scholarship pageant is open to young girls and women of all ages. The only requirement for our pageants is that you be true to yourself and have a great time! We believe in all natural beauty, so only age appropriate outfits and make-up are allowed in our pageants.

  2. From May – October, the Temecula Valley Polo Club has polo games where families can tailgate and watch the match for free! You back your car right up to the field, pull out a blanket, a picnic dinner, a couple activities to keep the kids busy during slow periods (like hula hoops or kid’s croquet), and watch the match. There is a tent with dining tables and vendors (but it’s $20/person). There are also several amazing food vendors.

    • I just checked their website and unfortunately, the polo club now charges $15 pp for admission to tailgate. Ugh.
