The Special Olympics continue this week at multiple venues. You can celebrate these gifted athletes any day this week by checking out one of their events, all of which are free.
Los Angeles lives up to its reputation as entertainment capital during the summer months in particular, when movies and music play indoors and out. And there’s the weather: while many of us may have been shell shocked by last week’s rain in July (really, after the garage sale was all set up?), the weather has been otherwise glorious. This week should be a perfect one for splashing at the Annenberg, checking out the surfers in the South Bay, enjoying an outdoor concert in the Marina, or stargazing at the Garvey Observatory. Let’s not knock the rain, though, and let’s certainly not assume that the drought is over. We still have a long way to go before our parched state quenches its thirst. So while we are all crossing fingers for rain, and making plans to be outdoors most of the summer, let's not forget that Mommy Poppins also has a handy guide to indoor activities, for days when it is too hot, too cold, or even too wet to be outside.
Be sure to check out our Event Calendar for more free and discounted activities; here are our five favorites for the week.
