We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

You don't have to be a tourist to get a kick out of Hollywood's most touristy tourist attractions. Although, if you have friends visiting from out of town this weekend, you'll definitely want to take note.

Hollywood is throwing its first block party tomorrow, Saturday May 19, from 10am to 1pm, and some of the area's top attractions, including Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Madame Tussauds and the Kodak Theatre, will offer free admission and tours to L.A. locals with a photo I.D.

Go behind the scenes at Cirque du Soleil "Iris" to see costumes, prop demonstrations and have your, or your kid's, makeup done for free.

Restaurants and shops at the Hollywood & Highland Center will also feature special offers.

Think you can handle so much Hollywood in a day? Event organizers will hand out "Hollywood Block Party Passports" to all visitors, and everyone who gets the passport stamped at all of the participating locations will qualify for special prizes.

Is Hollywood not your style? There's plenty to do around town today: "Get Out: Dum Dum Girls at the Getty, Santa Monica Festival & Lawrence Weiner Exhibition"
