Guess what? We like the Earth. We like it so much we got an early start on celebrating it last week. We like it so much we're going to continue celebrating it this week. The LA Zoo is so head over heels about Planet E, it's keeping the party going for five (count 'em) consecutive weekends. Our planet rocks.
Of course, some creatures go overboard in showing their planetary affection. Like those silver swimmers, the grunion. And by going overboard, I mean wriggling onto dry land to kiss the ground (and make some babies). You can watch the totally G-rated albeit past bedtime action in both San Pedro and Venice this weekend.
And why do all creatures great and small love our home turf so much? Well, duh, it's because of all the great things we can do here! Take a look at our calendar for this weekend: we've got trucks; we've got pets and cowboys; we've got a big ol' parade and an even bigger street fiesta. We've got free Hot Wheels and a free chance to dance. We've got all your favorite Disney characters on Ice; where else can you find that? Pluto? You must be Goofy!
