The show is free and open to the public today, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but today is closing day, so don't miss out!

Bueller...? Bueller....?
Cinespia screens the John Hughes 1986 new classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Gates open at 6:30 pm and the movie starts at 8:00 pm. No reservation is necessary; $10 donation tickets available at gate. Bring a picnic, blankets and friends...just no tall chairs! Enjoy DJ Richard Edson spinning before and after the screening.

Fiesta Hermosa
This weekend it's the 37th Annual Fiesta Hermosa, known as Southern California's largest Arts & Crafts Festival with over 270 vendors last year. Of course, many people bypass the booths on Hermosa Avenue and head straight to the Beer & Wine Garden! Hear all sorts of cover bands on the Pier and stuff yourself in the food court. Parking will be limited, so best to take the shuttle provided from the Northrop Grumman Parking Lot at the intersection of Manhattan Beach Boulevard and Doolittle Street.
