Things to Do This Weekend (And Next) in LA
It’s chilly in LA this week, and the forecast calls for even more cool weather next week. That can only mean one thing: time to go out and enjoy it! If you’re looking for something to get your hands (or your kids’ hands) into, there’s so much in store, and you can find a few special events right here for your convenience.
Play-Doh Pop-Up at Westfield Century City
We meant it when we said, “Something to get your hands or your kids’ hands into.” This coming Sunday, November 6th, the beloved childhood brand, Play-Doh, is celebrating the release of their newest competition show: Play-Doh Squished at Westfield Century City!
Families are invited to join the brand for an afternoon filled with themed interactive Play-Doh stations, photo booths, treats, and a live display with master Play-Doh builder Jason Loik. It’s the ultimate Play-Doh paradise that kids of previous generations could only dream of — so why not get your hands dirty, too?
The show, hosted by Sarah Hyland, features three teams of fun-loving adults and kids going toe-to-toe in ultimate Play-Doh competitions. In the end, only one team will win a grand prize, while the other teams’ creations will get SQUISHED! Dust off those old Play-doh creativity skills!
Date: Sunday, November 6th
Time: 2:30 PM – 5:30 PM PST
Location: The Atrium at Westfield Century City (Level 1, near Lululemon and Tesla)
