Weekend Fun Oct. 19-21st

on October 18, 2012

Howdy! Choo Choo!  No!  Abracadabra!   Just having a little fun writing my blog.  All of the events happening around town this weekend can be summed up with these one word descriptions…okay “choo choo” is technically two words but close enough.


Silverado Days in Buena Park: Annual carnival with games, crafts, contests, rides, food and fun for the whole family.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday at William Peak Park.  FREE admission

Choo Choo!

Depot Day at Travel Town:  Annual celebration and Open house on Sunday, October 21 from 10 am to 4 pm.  Take your train enthusiast and celebrate Travel Town with a day of special exhibits and activities for the whole family!  Admission is FREE!

Free train rides at Goat Hill Junction:  Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 3:30 pm.  Did I mention it’s FREE?


David Shannon reading & book signing:  Author David Shannon, known most notably for his No, David! books will be reading and signing copies of his new book, Jangles, A Fish Story on October 21st from 1-5 pm at the Sarah Bain Gallery in Brea.  Even if you don’t get a chance to go to this event, be sure to check out the No, David! books.  My kids love them but maybe it’s because I can easily substitute David’s name with my son’s.  Your kids are probably better behaved.


Magic Show:  Magician Allen Oshiro presents a fun magic show for the whole family on Saturday, October 20 from 2-3 pm at the Artesia Library!  Also FREE!

Have a great weekend!
