8th Annual Taste of Santa Monica
Get a bite of the food scene in Santa Monica at this annual event held at the historic Pier. The Taste of Santa Monica brings together dozens of area eateries. Admission is $10, which gets you access to live music, giveaways, a chance to win tickets to see Cirque du Soleil's Kooza, and more. Of course, the food costs extra--this year they're selling Taste Bucks, which you can use to enjoy the wonderful food and purchase beverages at the many wine booths, beer gardens and bar.

Festival of Philippine Arts and Culture
The Festival of Philippine Arts and Culture is the anchor program of FilAm ARTS. It is an annual series of multi-disciplinary arts events that takes place in the County of Los Angeles from poetry readings, concerts, to visual arts exhibits culminating in a two-day festival weekend--and today is the second (and last) day of said fest. A full schedule is available here detailing what you'll find down at San Pedro's Point Fermin Park. Admission is $7, and there's stuff to do there all day.
