I’m always up for great events and hosting a giveaway for this event makes it even sweeter. First let me tell you about this awesome event. The Kids Rock Music and Nature Festival is an outdoor family concert, picnic dinner, and Nature Fair, promising to be an early evening of great music, good food, and hands-on eco-activity at the historic Old Zoo picnic area at Griffith Park.
Featured artist is Tom Freund who will be performing kids music that the whole family will enjoy. Whether gathering seashells, walking the dog or hugging a tree, Freund urges kids to get outside and keep it moving.
The nature fair will feature activity and craft booths for kids of all ages. Kids will be able to dig for dino bones, make their own jewelry and even pet live animals!

Bring the whole family to enjoy an early evening of music, nature, and fun in Los Angeles’ most famous park!

Travel Town Museum Revisited

One of my favorite places to visit is Griffith Park. I love so many of it’s attractions and it’s natural beauty. I would have to say that many fun times were spent at the Travel Town Museum. If you love trains or your little ones love trains this is a must stop. It’s an outdoor museum with many locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars and cabooses on display.

There is a train ride that circles around the museum and is a must if you are going to visit. Train Rides are $2.50 for adults and children. There are also Public Play Days on the first Sunday of the month from 1 to 4pm where kids can play with the museum’s 400 wooden piece Thomas set. There are also docent guided tours every 2nd and 3rd Saturday of the month. Tours start at 11am. Admission and parking is free!! I
