Here's what we learned last weekend: it does rain in Southern California, sometimes so much that they cancel or postpone things, like concerts in the park, plays… they even closed the ocean (sorta kind of). But that was last week. This weekend, we should be back to our usual partly-sunny, no-humidity-here kind of paradise. Go ye forth and frolic, get your dance on, and enjoy all that our beloved Southland has to offer. (Beaches, even!)
And good timing, too, since the eyes of the world will be upon us this weekend. The Special Olympics brings special needs athletes from 177 nations to compete in venues throughout Los Angeles. Events are free to attend, so why not go cheer on some exceptional competitors?
Of course, in the land of the free, you can stay indoors if you really want. Indoor type? Circus, baby! Want the sun on your back? Orange County Fair! You can learn about space indoors with a roof over your head, or with a ceiling of stars. You can enjoy the Sunshine (Band) at night in the Marina (with KC, of course!), you can build your sandcastle in the sand, explore Chinatown, enjoy the arts and free movies, party with the faeries, run the bases and take in the explosive finale to the 1812 Overture. Okay, it looks like outdoors is winning this weekend, which makes sense, it being Southern California and all. (But better enjoy it while you can: an El Niño is coming this year!)
