There are a lot of great ideas for this weekend to be outdoors.

Friday, 8/2/13 head over to the West Patio for the Summer Music Series at The Farmers Market. Choose from a wide selection of walk-up eateries and casual sit-downs and free live music from 7-9 pm.

Just down the street, LACMA stays firmly in first place for coolest museum in the city with its Free Jazz in the Courtyard series. The summer continues with legend Bob Sheppard, plus extended museum hours so you have plenty of time to check out two exhibitions in their last days: Ends and Exits, a contemporary art collection, and Stephen Prima’s installation.


Rise & Shine Saturday at the OC Fair scores you $3 General Admission tickets (Reg. $11) between 10-11 am. The fair closes on August 11, so get in your requisite fair food and rides before the rush. Or bring your running shoes for the OC Fair 5k Sunday at 8 am.

If you prefer fitness to fair food, Santa Monica Place offers free zumba classes at the Center Plaza from 9-10 am. It’s free to participate.

Movies under the stars! Bring a blankets and snacks as Cinespia hosts a screening of Jim Henson’s 1982 muppet epic “The Dark Crystal” at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Tickets $12.

Heritage Square hosts a screening of the 1925 silent film version of cinematic classic the Wizard of Oz. Tickets $10.

And like I always say…..there’s always the beach!
