You could do that massive pile of laundry that has been gathering on your floor for the last two weeks, or you could blow it all off and go play with your kids. Interested in the latter?
Here are my top 5 picks for Family Fun in Santa Clarita this weekend:
Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center – Mary Poppins the Musical
Take the family to see the joyous musical Mary Poppins at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at the College of the Canyons for some air-conditioned live entertainment. It’s running Saturdays and Sundays now through August 16th and you can find tickets and info on their website.
Its family fun with a sweet message, plus some delicious singing and tasty dancing, too.
Youth Safety Fair
Your kids listen to you, kinda, right? Sometimes it’s helpful to have another voice giving them safety tips, and the Old Town Newhall Library is adding in the “teenager cool factor” for an added bonus at their Youth Safety Fair.
It’s Saturday, August 1st from 1-3pm at the Library and the free event will feature local teens giving the scoop on safety topics through skits, games and prizes. Get all of the details here.
Not a bad idea, since sometimes when we are giving advice to our kids we sound like the teachers in Charlie Brown.
Blues Music Day
Appreciate good blues music? Celebrate Blues Music Day with the whole family at Rivendale Park as part of LA Summerfest! The free (donations welcome) event is made for the whole family to enjoy on Saturday, August 1st from 3-9:30 pm and includes live blues music, plus food trucks, vendors, and dancing. You can get the details on their website.
That will keep you from singing your own “bored with nothing to do blues.” Da DA duh da duh…
Vida Fest – Real Life Church
Helping people in need while having a good time with your family? Sounds like perfection, right? If so, head on over to the Vida Fest this weekend to enjoy a perfect day.
Vida Fest, brought to you by the Real Life Church, will be held at the William S. Hart Park on Sunday, August 2nd. They are collecting backpacks with certain school supplies in them, so visit their website for the full list of supplies needed and details on drop-off.
Plus there is a party with food truck, music, backpack giveaways, and more. So party….perfectly!
Scott Martin Latin Soul Band – Concerts in the Park
The concert takes place in Central Park starting at 7 pm, and this week features an incredible Latin Jazz lineup with The Latin Soul Band. Make sure to bring a picnic blanket or chairs, food or cash for the trucks, and your ability to bust a move.
Your whole family will love it, whether that move gets busted or not.
