You’re Invited to Our Birthday Bash at The Original Farmers Market!
2015 is a special year for L.A. Parent; it’s our 35th anniversary and to celebrate, we’re throwing a Birthday Bash at The Original Farmers Market, an iconic location for Los Angeles events. Our Birthday Bash will be hosted by Whit Johnson and Daniella Guzman, anchors of NBC4’s Today in LA, and feature appearances by “Extra” host Mario Lopez and Disney’s Skai Jackson! Join us on Sunday, August 2, from noon to 3pm to celebrate this milestone. We hope to bring the community together and show our appreciation for all of the support throughout the years.
Admission to the event is free, but we encourage guests to bring a new toy or book for the kids at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House, which serves as a home away from home each year for hundreds of families whose children are receiving care at local hospitals. Sticker Planet, located at the Farmer’s Market, is offering a 15% discount and Kip’s Toyland, also at the Farmer’s Market, is offering a 10% discount on any purchase made for the Ronald McDonald House kids. Lopez and Jackson will present the gifts to these families, which will be guests at the party, and also present the winners of our Awesome Kids Contest with an award.
At the party, there will be live performances by Debbie Allen Dance Academy, Musyca Children’s Choir, Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles, The Mariachi Conservatory Youth Ensemble, and soccer tricks by World Famous Futboleros. Enjoy arts and crafts with American Girl Place, Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, K12 Online Education, The Nanny League, Page Private School, and Center Theatre Group, plus photo booth fun with Dot Photobooth, games, face painting, a giant birthday cake and more!
The first 200 people to arrive and sign up for L.A. Parent’s free weekly e-newsletter will receive goody bags (while supplies last).
