Today is traditionally tax day, but we get a break this year thanks to some government holiday and we have until the 18th to file! I think this is a reason to celebrate or at least have a fun filled weekend! Lucky for us there is a lot to do... you can catch a concert at Walt Disney Hall, see a comedy show at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, take in a performance at Los Angeles Theatre Center or one of the two main attractions of the weekend the OC Pet Expo or the Great Urban Race.
The OC Pet Expo starts today and runs til Sunday at 6pm. This is the perfect family event especially if you are looking for a pet or have one. A big warning, try not to by into all the hype, you could end up spending a lot a money on things you really don't need. But you also may really make out with all the free samples and take aways. In addition to the exhibits you can catch a Splash Dogs competition in the parking lot and there are demos inside of other dog sports such as Agility and Nosework. All of that plus all the animals that you can interact with and check out... this is my favorite part. I can't make it there until Sunday this year, but I've heard this year is going to be even better than last! For more information, bark on the link: Bark!
The Great Urban Race - Los Angeles is this Saturday! If you haven't heard of this, it is like the Amazing Race, but local (in Downtown) or a really cool scavenger hunt. I have never participated in this, though I really want to. I think it would be great to put together a team and just have a great time all day running through L.A. following clues. Every year I have seen others doing it or friends of mine have entered and told me about it, I think it looks and sounds so fun and such a great way to experience our beautiful city! It is not too late to sign up, there is still time. For all the information, bark on the link: Bark!
