Weekend Fun for LA Kids: Farmers Market Fall Fest, Depot Day, and Lots of Halloween Scares

Enjoy weekend activities in Agoura Hills, Oxnard, Fillmore, Bel Air, Pomona, Hollywood, Calabasas, Buena Park, and more

The weekends around here have been Halloweeny for a while now, but they're starting to get a little...scary. And I don't just mean because you realized that your kid's desired costume is on backorder til Christmas so you may have to make one yourself. I mean honest to goodness, Momma's too old for this, scare the bejeebus out of you, old school nightmare-inducing terror.

Thank heavens for the light side. The pumpkin paths with a little extra, the fall festival in the middle of our big city, the old fashioned mechanisms and the newfangled futurism and the prehistoric history. Nothing beats the look of joy on an elephant's face as he chows down on a whole pumpkin. (At least I think that's joy?) Nothing beats the look of joy on your kids' faces when they chow down on fluffy puffy marshmallows. (Now I know that's joy!)

This weekend you can go to your happy place, whether it's a train depot, a Japanese gardenSalem, Massachusetts, or outer space. Tons of fun, and none of it scary. Except for that thing about the costume. Anyone know a good seamstress?

Keep reading for our favorite picks for the weekend, which totally aren't scary...
