The First Weekend of 2013

on January 3, 2013

Happy 2013 everyone!

Welcome to the first weekend of 2013.  I hope you all had a great holiday break.  Here are some fun activities to cap off the end of winter break.

  • It’s FREE day at the La Habra Children’s museum and the theme is January Jamboree.  A day of circus style performances to celebrate the New Year in a carnival atmosphere! Children will participate in interactive performance techniques including plate spinning and juggling!
  • There’s also a free Kids workshop at Home Depot where your child can build a birdhouse.
  • On Sunday, head out to downtown LA for a double header of holiday fun.  First, the Japanese American National museum will be ringing in the New Year with it’s Oshogatsu Family Festival.  Admission is FREE all day.  There will be fun arts ‘n crafts and other fun cultural performances.  Later in the evening, head over to Olvera street to watch a reenactment of Los Tres Reyes Magos.    The Feast of Epiphany is a celebration of the day the three kings arrived at the nativity.  The three kings aka the three wise men will make a colorful procession down the street commemorating the journey following the star to Bethlehem.   Prizes, free champurado and pan dulce will be available for all the kids to enjoy and there will even be a Piñata for the kids to break.
  • If Downtown is not your thing, the Bowers museum is also having a HOLLYWOOD FILM AND FASHION FAMILY FESTIVAL.  Admission is FREE all day.

Have a great weekend!
