This is not just any week, folks; it's Grandparents Week! Noah's Ark gives the whole family a chance to celebrate National Grandparents Day all week long at Skirball Cultural Center, with up to two grandparents (or great-aunts or great-uncles) getting in free when purchasing child ticket. The older set can watch or join in as kids enjoy the floor-to-ceiling wooden ark filled with animals two by two.
Grand Park in Downtown LA hosts a free daylong party for families to launch the art installation Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. Led by the Getty, the event is a series of thematically linked exhibitions by art institutions throughout Southern California, exploring Latin American in relation to the LA area. Families can learn more about the exhibits through a pop-up installation and social space, an immersive workshop, and live entertainment.
And since the week begins with September 11, we're highlighting two kid-friendly events to mark the day. In particular, Pepperdine's annual 9/11 Flag Memorial, with thousands of flags flapping in the sea breeze, is always worth a drive up PCH.
