Here’s a list of fun events and activities in January for the entire family in North County San Diego.

ESCONDIDO: Interpretive Walk at Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve (FREE)

CARLSBAD: Carlsbad Film Series: Hail, Caesar! PG-13 (FREE)

On Wednesday, January 11, 6pm to 8pm, kick back, relax and enjoy the film “Hail, Caesar!” A Hollywood fixer, Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), in the 1950s works for a film studio to keep big name stars from scandal and public scrutiny. When Baird (George Clooney), the studio’s biggest star, goes missing Mannix’s work becomes more difficult trying to hold off the gossip columnists. Learn more:

ENCINITAS: Moonlight State Beach Cleanup (FREE)

On Saturday, January 21 at 9am, join fellow ocean-lovers as they help keep the beach free of trash – especially the small pieces of trash and cigarette butts that often look like food to sea creatures.
