Free, free, free. A whole passel of museums and even gardens are freebie free free this Saturday, and all you have to do is show up and get culturized. Or in some cases get a timed ticket. Or wait til Sunday. (Speaking of free cultures... if you can wait til Monday there's some free yogurt in it for you.)
Hey, you know what else is free? A free evening of entertainment on the historic Broadway Corridor in Downtown LA. You can dance it up in a silent disco, take a VR ride down the LA river, hear music from Ozomatli, the Spazamatics, and Aloe Blacc, and go S.T.E.A.M. crazy with a giant peg light board, robot games, and exotic rescue wildlife. But you have to pay to ride the Ferris Wheel.
Hey, you know what else is free? Lunar New Year celebrations in Monterey Park, Beverly Hills, and Glendale. Dodger FanFest in Echo Park. Some cool concerts for kids. Mardi Gras at the Farmers Market. Whale Fiesta at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium. The best things in life are free, and baby, we've got 'em all!
