Okay, technically, it is still spring, and the first day of summer, Monday June 20th, is weeks away. Nevertheless, I think we can all agree that as school comes to a close, Memorial Day barbecues are lit, and The Annenberg Beach House opens for holiday swimming, the season of the sun is upon us. There are myriad ways to honor our vets on Monday. Festivals and parades abound. But if you want something low key and relaxing that says “summer is here!” hang out at the Annenberg Beach House, where you can spend the day on the beach and then cool off in a glorious pool as the sun sets.
Many of our local libraries are starting to rev up their summer reading programs. Everybody does it slightly differently, but the end result is the same: kids spend the summer reading books. In Eagle Rock, the kick-off is this week. Another thing kicking off this week is a summer of al fresco music, starting in Beverly Hills as the Concerts on Cañon commence.
Also launching this week are four cool experiences at our two Discovery Cubes: In LA Speed: The Science of Motion explores the science behind Formula 1 racing (conveniently coinciding with the Indy 500), and Dora and Diego guide baby animals through a rainforest maze. Meanwhile in Orange County, life-sized animatronic dinosaurs recreate prehistoric times, and young motorcycle enthusiasts get to dream it, build it, ride it with a hands-on Harley-Davidson immersive exhibit.
Honestly, there is so much going on, it's hard to say what's the best of the bunch. That's why we need your help choosing! Please vote in our Best of LA contest, and you could win one of the wonderful prizes that we can't wait to share (think parties and vacations)!
Oh, and best make it a habit to peruse Mommy Poppins’ Event Calendar; you wouldn’t want to miss out on National Donut Day.
