Weekend Fun for LA Kids: Hollywood CicLAvia, Wings over Camarillo, Tacos, & Rocket Fever

Things are about to change around here. Say goodbye to the nonstop fiesta filled with concerts, festivals, and moviesA huge chunk of kids in the LA area are going back to school sometime in the next week, and that means ...{checks notes} ...a continuation of the nonstop fiesta filled with concerts, festivals, and movies. Huh. Go figure.

This weekend, for instance: you can go full Little Tokyo at the closing weekend of the Nisei Week, with a gyoza eating contest and the Rubik's Cube Open. You can chow down on BBQ and tacos. You can take flight, soaring through the skies, or reaching for the space just beyond that. 

There's lots of music making and moving pictures.There may even be a chance to learn something as well, but we will call it entertainment. No need to put up a stink. It's just a typical weekend round these parts. Now that school is starting.
