The weekend is within reach, and if you're sticking around the Bay Area for the next few days, ABC7's Reggie Aqui is here to give you some ideas.

Head over to Ocean Beach tomorrow morning for the fall edition of Nor Cal Corgi Con.

The free event, which begins at 10am between Stairwell 2 and 5, will feature exciting events like a ninja obstacle course, a group photo, a costume contest and many other attractions. 

If you're looking for something a bit more tame, check out this year's Wharf Fest, which begins at 11am at Pier 43. Unfortunately, tickets to the chowder competition are sold out, but you can still have fun by going to the street fair, buying some art from local vendors and taking part in a Segway obstacle course. 

Finally, after you're had your dose of corgis and chowder, make your way to SoMa for the San Francisco Trolley Dances. The two-day event, which offers six tours each day, showcases performances in hip-hop, Tibetan folk dance and music, contact improvisation and many other dance forms.
