Del Mar Highlands Town Center is celebrating its grand re-opening with two jam-packed days of festivities and promotions on Friday, Sept. 9, and Saturday, Sept. 10. The event will feature live music, fashion shows, a pet parade, free face painting, cooking demonstrations, food samplings, prizes, giveaways and much more. Nearly every Del Mar Highlands merchant is offering up fun, free or discounted deals.

The re-opening festivities kick off on Friday, Sept. 9 with a fashion show featuring the latest trends from center merchants in the plaza from 4-5 p.m. The show will be followed by soft jazz live music performance by Forecast.

On the upper plaza, food samplings from the center’s eateries will be offered and dogs can grab a bite at “Yappy Hour” at Pet People from 3-7 p.m. Pet People will be serving up Sweet Spots doggie ice cream samples with biscuit toppings.

On Saturday, there will be free caricature drawings, face painting and balloon twisting for the kids as well as a Ronald McDonald magic show in the plaza from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Prize drawings will be held every hour from noon to 6 p.m. in the plaza, with the grand prize being a $500 shopping spree.

The pet parade contest will also be held Saturday. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. and the parade and judging begins at 11 a.m. in the lower level plaza. The winner receives a $100 gift certificate to Pet People.

Local radio stations will be doing live remotes from the center: KyXy 96.5 will be by Rite Aid from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sophie 103.7 will broadcast from 1-3 p.m. by Tilly’s. Bring a $25 or more receipt from a Del Mar Highlands Town Center merchant to any of the live radio remotes on Saturday and receive a free gift while supplies last.

Celebrity chef Brian Malarkey of the new restaurant Burlap will serve up a cooking demonstration in the plaza at 3 p.m., followed by Chuao Chocolatier founder Chef Michael Antornorsi demonstrating how to make his signature truffles with a twist at 3:30 p.m.
