This weekend in Santa Clarita may be sunny, or it may have a torrential downpour and flash flooding. To be prepared for anything, you may want to plan for both indoor and outdoor activities with your kids. (And DON’T try to convince your kids a flash flood is a waterslide park. They won’t go for it.)
Here are my top 5 picks for family fun in Santa Clarita this weekend:

You all deserve a prize for your hard work over the summer. Especially you, parents!
NOBODY parties like the City of Santa Clarita, seriously. So if you want a family friendly party to take full advantage of the summer, then check out the Summer Bash they are throwing.
Friday, July 24th from 6 to 10 pm check out the Block Party on Luther Drive between Soledad Canyon Rd and Mandan St in Canyon Country. Music, food trucks, and family fun activities are all part of the fun and admission is free.
So party with the city and make all those other cities super jealous (we are talking to you, Burbank.)
