Looking for the best things to do in Los Angeles this weekend? Here are some of our favorite events and activities to add to your list this weekend.

It's a dino-mite weekend, booked with festivals and train rides. Start the weekend with a clean slate at the Coastal Cleanup. Sit back and enjoy the ride, hopping on the train at Griffith Park or the Santa Barbara Zoo. Then it's fiesta time, with choices of dinos, gorillas, or ukuleles. And pumpkins? You've got your pick, as patches are popping up in some of our favorite haunts. 

This weekend is the first official weekend of fall! So, if autumn traditions are on the mind, discover the best fall fairs and festivals in LA, have a gourd time choosing a pumpkin in the best pumpkin patches near Los Angeles, and find more fall festivities in our Fall Fun Guide for Los Angeles and OC Kids
