It's one of those weekends where so much is happening in the Southland, you don't know what to talk about first. 

Let's start in Orange County where the Orange County Sheriff's Department has announced it will deploy "DUI saturation patrols" in Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Woods and Aliso Viejo on Friday at 7 p.m.

"After falling dramatically for five straight years, figures for 2012 showed an increase in deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver," according to a press release sent out by the OCSD. 

Then, there's the March of Dimes on Saturday at Exposition Park in Los Angeles. The march starts at 8:30 a.m.
