Does your typical weekend go like this?
You: “Let’s go out and do something fun together!”
Kids: “There’s nothing to do around here, let’s watch TV instead.”
You: (deep sigh) “Fine, at least let’s sit side by side on the couch…
Check out the SCV Buzz to have a much better answer than THAT!
Here are my top 5 picks for cheap and local family fun in Santa Clarita this weekend:
Grade Level Chess Championships
Yep, you have a Chess Player in the family, and there is an event just for them-the Chess Championships at the Santa Clarita Library.
This coming Saturday, May 30th, grade levels are matched at times between 10 am and 5 pm at the Santa Clarita Library. Visit the California Youth Chess league website to register for the free event.
Let your child unleash their inner Fischer with others chess lovers. Free the FISCHER!!!
Remo Kids Rhythm Club
Loud singing, drums, and musical fun is all great for kids, and even greater for you if it isn’t in your living room. There’s a perfect outlet for your kids this and every Saturday, the Remo Kids Rhythm Club at SCVI!
SCVI Charter School is hosting this weekly event starting at 9:30 am at SVCI on Halsey Canyon Road. Kids are free and adults are only $5 and your family can play drums, sing, and create with the whole family. Visit their website for details.
So much fun! Plus it’s guaranteed they will be considerably quieter the rest of the day.
Battle of the Bands College of the Canyons
This Sunday, May 31st, you and your kids can rock out properly at the Battle of the Bands at the College of the Canyons Canyon Country Campus.
The free event is from noon to 5 pm and will have food, a car show, a supervised children’s activity center, and – of course – crazy amazing bands!

Never give up on the real music, parents, NEVER GIVE UP!!
