Tri-City Shopping Center, one of the major mixed-use retail districts in Southern California's Inland Empire -- the IE - and home to the annual Thanksgiving Weekend Snowtacular, has expanded its event series to four major annual sales festivals -- which it has dubbed the "Spectacular Event Series." The additional Spectacular events include more free things to do for IE families including the Redlands Spring Funtacular, the Back-to-School Showtacular fashion event on Labor Day weekend, and the upcoming Redlands Family Memorial Day Weekend Sportacular.
