Need to get a little spring fresh air?  Here’s a few things going on in your local area this weekend.

Friday 4/4/14

Downtown – How do you take your tacos?  Well find out at Grand Parks’s Taco Madness.  Tacos, and DJs, Live art and a Beer garden.  Seriously.  Just writing about this makes me hungry.
Downtown – DODGER DAY!  Welcome to the start of baseball!
Las Virgenes – Come join the Sky Walkers on their night hike as they observe the night sky in their monthly walk.

Saturday 4/5/14

Franklin Canyon – Head to Franklin Canyon park for a guided nature walk at 8AM.  Get both your exercise and some fresh air.  Best of both worlds, right?!
Franklin Canyon – If you’re still in Franklin Canyon after your walk,head over and join Food Forward, a nonprofit who helps pick food and donate to local food banks.  They will be collecting their 2 million pounds of food picked at that location!
Long Beach – Okay, usually I don’t post quite so far away. But I have two words for you: Fishie. Fishie.  Head to the Aquarium of the Pacific on either Saturday or Sunday for International Children’s Day. With music and dancing from all sorts entertainment for the kiddos from all corners of the earth.
Los Angeles – this is one event I try to go to every year.  PILLOW FIGHT!!!!  International Pillow Fight Day is back!  People all over the world gather at the same time to have one knock-down-drag-out-all-for-fun pillow fight.  And I must admit, the view of feathers floating along downtown always makes me laugh.
Pasadena – Those who know me well know that I’m not only a HUGE animal lover, but I’m also a big equestrienne.  So I get a little giddy every year for the Santa Anita Derby. For starters, there’s a Beer festival that day. 2 for 2.  And a 5K walk/run.  You can even bring the kiddos.
Woodland Hills – For some family fun, head to CHIME Charter’s Carnival and Health Fair. Expect games, rides, and general merriment. There’s even a silent auction to support the school.

Sunday 4/6/14

Franklin Canyon – If you weren’t free for Saturday’s walks, try heading up to one of three guided nature walk on Sunday. Each walk has  a different ‘theme’.  From kids walks to learning how to take pictures of nature, there should be something for everyone.North Hollywood – Valley Vista Elementary school will be holding its annual Springtacular!  Attractions include a toddler zone, live music, art sale, carnival games and much more!

Friday 4/11/14

Los Angeles – Hubster is a writer so one thing we share is an avid love of reading.  Which means we both get a little giddy when the Los Angeles Times takes over the USC campus for the Festival of Books for the entire weekend. Have you ever seen a grown man giddy?  It’s quite the sight.
Sherman Oaks – If you missed the last two school carnivals, perhaps you might want to go to Chandler Learning Academy’s Spring Fair  as well! At only $1 a ticket, it’s a great way to cap off the week!

Saturday 4/12/14

Franklin Canyon – Some people aren’t campers but are curious about being outside.  Join in on the guided full moon hike and check out the beautiful city views!
Los Angeles – After visiting the Easter bunny in Sherman Oaks, head to Pershing Square for the annual Easter Egg hunt!
North Hollywood – I personally spend regular time in North Hollywood’s Art District and have always been curious about the Amelia Earhart library.  Well now I don’t have to wonder any longer because the Museum o f San Fernando Valley will be hosting a NoHo guided walking tour and including that stop!  Perfect!
Sherman Oaks – Here comes Peter Cottontail!  At least, I think that’s the Easter bunny’s name.  Regardless if I’m mixing together childhood stories, the Easter Bunny will be coming to Sherman Oaks Galleria to meet with the kids and be all ears!
Sherman Oaks – If you won’t have a chance to head to the Festival of Books, but need some new reading material, try headingto the Sherman Oaks Public Library’s Book Sale instead!

Sunday 4/13/14

Los Angeles – I think that the avocado – a food I abhorred before moving to LA – is a mandatory food to like if living in California.  SO why not head to Olvera Street to pay tribute during the Avocado Festival?  Sounds delicious…
Universal City – Take the Do Good Bus for the day as they head around town to help out various altruistic causes.  Wow, seriously what a good idea.
