Los Angeles Free Friday

Sep 10, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Today’s Free Friday is but one of the many that we’ve published to bring our readership free activities and events to attend at no cost.

If you factor in all the things to do here that cost money–no matter how little or much–the “fun” factor increases dramatically.

We’re not perfect, however, so if you have a Free Event or Activity that you’d like us to publish, just insert it into our contact page, and we’ll make every effort to include it for that week.

I can hardly believe it’s already September 10th. Where has the year gone? Well, if you’ve recovered from all the Labor Day weekend festivities, you’re ready for everything Los Angeles has going on this weekend.

Since this Free Friday weekend is packed chalk full of music and bands, get your groove on, as there’s no shortage of things to do and places to go right here, while Travelin’ Local.

If you love dancing, but never learned how, your chance to change that can happen at the beautiful Music Center in downtown Los Angeles. Tonight is the last evening of Dance Downtown.

If you’d like to surprise your significant other and learn in secret, a partner will be provided.

With the music of Grammy Award winners Mariachi Divas, and a special performance by Mario Reyes of the Gipsy Kings, the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Latino Heritage Month is the family event of the day, if not year.
