SAT SEPT 28TH
DOWNTOWN: I’ve never been to a drive-in before, so I might need to check off my bucket list “See NeverEnding Story at a Drive-in” this day. Little known, Chelsea fact: The NeverEnding Story is definitely one of my favorite childhood movies. I mean, who doesn’t want to ride a giant, flying dog-like creature?!

SUN SEPT 29TH
DOWNTOWN: Fact–ukulele means “jumping flea” in Hawaiian. Seriously. Tickets are free, but space is limited to join the Music Center’s Ukulele-Along: where beginner and intermediate ukulele enthusiasts can step into the gateway of happiness and make some fun music.
PASADENA: Last walk, I swear. Bring the puppies and kiddos and join the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA for the Wiggle Waggle Walk. This one entry is free–but donations & sponsorship are certainly encouraged.
TARZANA: Calling all princes and princesses! The Faery Hunt is underway! Join the faery folk as they search for the Fae Royalty in a scavenger hunt type interactive show. Costumes for the kids are encouraged.
