Arboretum Summer Nights

when: Aug 8, 2014 at 6 p.m.

where: Los Angeles Arboretum, 301 North Baldwin Ave., Arcadia, Ca

cost: $3-$5

ages: All Ages

add to calendar: Google   iCal/Outlook

the scoop:

The one problem with the beautiful Arboretum in the summer is – it’s hot.  Darn hot.  Too darn hot.  The solution?  Come at night.  The evening cool, you bring a picnic (or get food at the Peacock Cafe), stroll the grounds, and then pull up a blanket or lawn chair for the concert.  Tonight’s concert is the last of the summer and features the Steven Rushingwind Project, playing native world flute music.

Pippi Longstocking lives with her monkey in a wacky house, Villa Villekulla. When she’s not dancing with the burglars who were just trying to rob her house, she’s attempting to learn the “pluttification” tables at school; fighting Adolf, the strongest man in the world at the circus; or playing tag with police officers. Pippi’s good-natured hijinks cause as much trouble as fun in this bubbly, slapstick show for the whole family! This show is a Creating Arts Company pint sized play and is a one hour long interactive-cinematic-theatrical-experience that is recommended for ages 3 and up and fun for the entire family.
