Today official marks the first day of Spring 2014. Love (and pollen) is in the air and as hard as you work, don’t forget to get out there have fun and relax. There’s nothing better than the springtime weather in Southern California and we’re lucky that we have so much culture and different events to enjoy. Here are just a few:
Check out the Electric Dusk Drive In in downtown Los Angeles for a screening of The Big Lebowski on the “big” screen! Bring a lawn chair and enjoy a White Russian… for the Dude’s sake!
Spring signals the beginning of festival and concert season. Whether you’re committed to Coachella or Brokechella (yes, it’s a thing!), there’s something for everyone. The Greek Theater, Pantages Theater, and the Hollywood Bowl have just announced some upcoming shows. Take advantage of the weather for some prime people watching and music loving at a concert near you.
Laugh It Up at the LA Comedy Fest
Once again, there’s something for everyone. Short films, stand up compedy, improv and celebrity appearances. What’s there not to like?
Blessing of the Animals on Olvera Street
Easter celebrations are often associated with church, Jesus, family, candy, the Easter bunny and eggs. But farm animals and pets are welcome to be blessed with holy water the Saturday before Easter Sunday.
LA Times Festival of Books
Calling all bookworms! The USC campus hosts a festival of books that is open to the public each spring.
Cinco de Mayo
Come celebrate this festival known to break 500,000+ people in the crowd. Feast, dance, enjoy music and the occasional piñata-breaking.
The Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire
Spend your weekends at ye old Ren Faire. There are plenty of shows to see, crafts to buy and turkey legs to munch on.
Check out the Japanese Garden and Balboa Park in Van Nuys for prime flower viewing. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom, making it a perfect photo-op and walk around the park with a date!
