Brrrr month bringing some real heat

September is here. That’s the first of the “brrrr” months, although you couldn’t tell that by looking outside. But the pace of activities is picking up with meetings, events, and – of course – football. Here’s how things look for the week for the good folks who live, work, or play in Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Stanton and Westminster.

WEATHER:  It’s going to be a warm week, or at least warmer than we’ve had for an unusually mild summer. Temps will reach up to 91 on Monday and all the way to 94 by Wednesday, gradually receding to 80 by Sunday in Garden Grove and Stanton. In Westminster and Huntington Beach, the highs will stay in the mid-80s, and then dive into the mid-70s by the weekend.

MEETINGS: Huntington Beach City Council meets on Tuesday this time instead of Monday because of the Labor Day holiday. The council’s study session starts at 4 p.m., with the regular session commencing at 6 p.m.

  • Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education meets on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
  • Garden Grove Planning Commission meets on Thursday at 7 p.m.

ENTERTAINMENT: Local live stages are still dark, and area cinemas aren’t much more lively. Opening this week is “It Chapter Two”: The same kids who battled the creepy clown are grown-up now, and not taking that harlequin’s guff any more. Rated R.

EVENTS: Some events you may want to attend:

  • “Chili Cookoff” at Eastgate Park in West Garden Grove Saturday from 12-3.
  • “Blessing of the Waves” on Sunday from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at the Pier Plaza (Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway) in Huntington Beach.

AND ALSO: Although most local public schools systems have started classes, some will begin this week. The Huntington Beach City School District will  commence instruction on Thursday and the Ocean View School District on Wednesday.

Oh, and have a great Labor Day, especially  if you’re not laboring.
