Three Things to Check Out - September 1 - 7, 2008
Everybody ready to go back to school? There's still time for fun things to check out!
L.A. Greek Fest, 2008, on September 5, 6 and 7. Now you know I like Greek Festivals of all kinds, big and small, but this is L.A. 's big one. It takes place in the Latino-Byzantine Quarter, at Saint Sophia's Cathedral, and includes celebrities, dancing, music, and even a fancy theatrical production. Just check out their glitzy website! You know the food will be fabulous! Opa!
The Los Angeles County Fair at Pomona's Fairplex kicks off this September 5 and runs through the end of the month. You can go ride rides, eat carnival food, and visit animal and livestock exhibits - OR you can go to the Grandstands and listen to hot acts perform! This is the big one, folks! Beat traffic by taking Metrolink.
Go down to San Pedro on September 6 and 7 for the 17th Annual Festival of Phillipine Arts and Culture. Music, Dance, Arts and culture - at Point Fermin Park, overlooking the sea in San Pedro. C'mon how long has it been since you've been to San Pedro? That alone is worth checking it out!
