California Dreamin’

As I write this post, the Mamas & the Papas are playing in my head.  We are so lucky we live in California and the beach is so available to us.  Even on  a winter’s day, we aren’t just dreaming.

The 81st Great Sand Sculpture contest is this weekend at Granada Beach in Long Beach from 10 am to 4 pm.  There will be sculptures built by professionals and sculptures built by amateur groups.   The event will also include a kid’s zone, arts and crafts, vendors, live music, and food on both days!

If the beach is not your thing, head out to the Natsumatsuri Family Festival at the Japanese American National Museum. This free event will feature cultural performances, demonstrations, activities, and crafts!
