Santa Monica Lookout
|Revelry Expected at Annual Santa Monica Festival|
By Lookout Staff
May 7, 2015 -- Music from around the world, dance workouts and activity sessions, farmers market cooking classes, a hands-on art zone, a cardboard playground -- officials are apparently trying to set a record for “fun had in a single day” at this year's Santa Monica Festival.
From noon to 4:50 p.m., instructors will lead zumba, rock and hip hop dance workouts, while at the Santa Monica Farmers Market Culinary Stage, Emcee Laura Avery will host kids' cooking classes and demonstrations by local chefs.
Visitors can learn how to make Japanese “quick pickles” or build a cardboard boat, two of many workshops scheduled throughout the day. Children can unleash their imaginations at the instant cardboard playground made entirely of recycled materials and sponsored by Rediscover Center.
Fair fare this year will be on sale at more than a dozen gourmet food trucks, while area artisans such as Aesthetics L.A., Artful, Lisa Ann Sparks, Nicci B and many others will offer hand-crafted items at the vendor marketplace.
According the City's website the annual festival “strives to be a zero-waste event.”
Free parking will be available at the park. For more information, http://www.smgov.net/Main/Santa_Monica_Festival/About_the_Santa_Monica_Festival.aspx
