Explore a Museum...

 The weekend is here and it is time to explore.  Fall is also here and for some reason we always seem to head towards Pasadena, to check out a movie and walk around old town.  Pasadena is of course famous for hosting the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl but it is also a great place to find cultural activities such as the symphony and the Norton Simon Museum.  Did you know that your local museums are a great place to catch a classic film?  The Norton is hosting a wonderful series that inlcudes Song of Bernadette which won 8 Oscars in its day.  Since my new job at KVCR has me finding fun things to do for our community, I have been reminded about the wealth of opportunities that our local museums provide.  You can attend lectures, take drawing lessons, enjoy musical performances and so much more!  Best of all many of these events are FREE/GRATIS! So in case you haven't made your plans for the weekend yet, check out your local museum.

Where do you head out for some free cultural fun?

Oh gosh, I have to answer that one with "nowhere". I'm a total homebody these days..., since I'm living in this house. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

Looks like a pretty drive.
I am fairly cultural except when it comes to my local museums.
Recently went to hear local bands in the Brady District. Went to the Art Walk a while back also.
I love Sushi but Sam never wants to eat Sushi. We eat allot of Subway. ;)

our favorite cultural event locally is a free folk festival weekend. phenomenal talent comes out of the woods and glades to play to happy folks on picnic blankets with kids running free and lots of artist and food vendor tents!

Let's see...I have to admit i'm not much of a "cultural" girl! Well I guess that's not totally true...I do like to take classes at the art museum:):)
Hope all is well with you! We're in full swing with Notre Dame games and festivities:):)

This is fabulous, Laura, I love free fun! I enjoyed a wonderful concert by the Indigo Girls at my University's homecoming reunion this weekend, and it was fabulous! Also, they had lots of lectures and that sort of thing, as well. XX!
