It’s been a while since I’ve made a list of free family friendly events happening in Los Angeles! I know the kids just went back to school and the cost of clothes and school supplies have left some wallets suffering. So, I present this small but helpful list of free events happening in Los Angeles this weekend. If you are hearing about these events for the first time and because of this post, I would love to know. Leave me a comment below or use hashtag #iamLAmamacita on your social media shares so I know this list is bringing some fun to my Los Angeles families!
