Los Angeles Free Friday

Jun 25, 2010 by Lisa Newton





For this week’s edition of Free Friday, I thought I’d start with a little poem.

I know, I know, you’re not here for the exciting introductory paragraph, you just want to see the various free events in Los Angeles this weekend.

Well, wait no more:

This Saturday and Sunday at Redondo Beach they’re going all out with the Riviera Village Summer Festival. Featuring music, beer gardens, kid’s crafts, carnival rides, and much more, this year’s Riviera Village Summer Festival looks is the place to have a lot of quality fun time. So be sure to head over to the corner of S. Catalina Ave & Avenue I, just one block from Redondo Beach State Park and have party hearty.

If you’re into desert plants, and when I say desert plants I’m talking about hundreds of award-winning plants. In the Friend’s Hall at Huntington Library and Gardens, on both Saturday, June 26th, and Sunday, June 27th, the Cactus and Succulent Society of America presents its annual show and sale. It will feature a plethora of rare specimens native to Chile, Argentina, Botswana, Madagascar, and the Middle East. If you’d like get there early, on Friday the hours for viewing are between 12:00 and 4:30pm. Over the weekend, the hours are between 10:30am – 4:00pm.

Due to the recent ongoing devastating gulf oil spill, Hands Across the Sand, is a movement made of people of all walks of life and crosses political affiliations that want to make a difference. It’s not about politics; it’s about protecting our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife, and fishing industries  Its mission is to share our common knowledge, energies and passion for protecting all of the above from the devastating effects of oil drilling. It starts at 11:00am on Saturday, June 26th, at locations throughout the California coast. Here;s the link to help you find a beach spot near you to make a difference.

Fallen Fruit is playing host EATLACMA, a year-long celebration of food, art, culture and politics. If attending feel free to bring a blanket and a picnic dinner and enjoy the festivities at LACMA on Sunday, June 27th, from 5:00-8:00pm. Fusing the richness of LACMA’s permanent collection with the ephemerality of food and the natural growth cycle, the EATLACMA’s project considers food as the common ground that explores the social role of art and ritual in both our community and human relationships. 

Since summer is officially begun be sure to have a safe and happy weekend full of fun and adventure.
