Get Your Fair Food Fix
The OC County Fair may be cancelled this year, but you can still enjoy some classic carnival grub. Get ready for the Fair Food Drive-Thru, featuring all your favorites, including funnel cakes, hotdogs on a stick and Hawaiian chicken bowls. All the details.
See “Big” on the Big Screen
Westfield Century City’s Come See movie nights returns for its third annual year this summer! Spend an evening in the open Atrium, book a Cabana for you and your party, and watch a movie under the stars (Big on Sat.) in a socially-distanced outdoor setting. All the details.
Experience Street Food Cinema
Do dinner and a movie on Fri. night with a drive-in showing of Zootopia from Street Food Cinema. If you’ve got older kids, it’s worth noting that the Labyrinth is playing on Sat., and La La Land on Sun. All the details.
Play Farmer for a Day
Head to Tanaka Farms for a U-Pick & Plant adventure, with a wagon ride around the farm, led by one of Tanaka’s friendly tour guides. Along the way, you’ll make stops to pick two different veggies (plus blackberries on select days), and at the end, you’ll learn how to plant your very own food to grow at home! All the details.
Rediscover the LA Zoo
The Los Angeles Zoo reopened on Aug. 26, with advanced reservations and timed entries. (Masks are also required.) If you can’t snag a ticket for this weekend, check out the Zoo’s Camplette packs, filled with fun and educational activities for little ones. All the details.
Give Fido a Check-Up
Join Annenberg PetSpace Health Center online for a special behind-the-scenes look at taking care of animals. They’ll show you how they care for their adoptable cats and dogs as they prepare them for their new homes. All the details.
Find a Starfish
Discover starfish, sea urchins, crabs, anemones and more at these tucked-away tide pools along the coast. We’ve got everything you need to know about where to go, when to arrive and how to get there—some pools are a bit trickier to access than other. All the details.
Do Zooga Outdoors
