Week Ahead: Carlsbad Marathon, Whale Watching and More

A round up of interesting things going on this week in town.

Monday is National AMBER Alert Awareness Day. The CHP reminds the public to get involved during an alert by listening to news reports, paying attention to highway message signs, and keeping an eye out for the suspect vehicle.

If you think your pet needs a makeover, Tuesday is the perfect day. It’s National Dress Up Your Pet Day, an event which dates back all the way to 2009. If you participate, send Patch a photo!

Attention self-employed individuals: Wednesday is the deadline for paying estimated taxes for the last quarter of 2013. The government shutdown in October delayed the start of the tax season, but not the date for payments.

Wednesday is also a great day to go to Carlsbad Film Series presents “Despicable Me 2” at the Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium at 6 p.m.

Winter is the height of the whale-watching season in San Diego County. Thousands of the giant mammals migrate from Alaska to Baja California to give birth, then return. The Convention & Visitor’s Bureau offers an online guide to tours.

Saturday is the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon & Half Marathon
