Family-Friendly Things To Do: July 19-21

Coil Basket Weaving Workshop

Thursday, July 19 | 5:30pm-7:00pm

Long Beach Museum of Art | 2300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach 90803

Get creative and try something new this summer at the LBMA. For just an hour and a half of your time and a small amount of money for supplies, you could be on your way to developing a new skill and having a beautifully-made vessel made of rope and coil. Once you develop a basic technique, enjoy experimenting with crafting baskets of different shapes, colors, and textures. This workshop is led by the Museum's Education Department and is open to all ages. Learn More:

Summer Breeze 5k, 10k, 15k, Half Marathon

Saturday, July 21 | 7:30am-10:30am

Long Beach Path in Belmont Shore | 5400 E. Ocean Blvd. Long Beach 90803

Get up bright and early this Saturday morning and be prepared to hit the pavement with fellow fitness enthusiasts. Because Summer Breeze ranges in distance, from a 5k to a half marathon, it is ideal for the entire family—that’s right, running/walking with a stroller is allowed as well. The course is easy to follow and consists of marked out and book loops around the beach path. This is a self-proclaimed “low-key race” that emphasizes a more personal satisfaction to racing. All runners will receive a finishers’ medal as well as a goodie bag. Learn More:

July Bike Mural Tour

Saturday, July 21 | 10:00am-12:00pm

MADE by Millworks | 240 Pine Ave., Long Beach 90802

Cruise through Long Beach on your bicycle and see a phantasm of beautiful murals that you don't normally see—some of them are impossible to stumble onto unless you're looking! Gather your loved ones (friends, family, kids, and spouses) and cruise through Long Beach discovering, viewing, and appreciating the city's murals. Join other riders in front of MADE by Millworks at 9:45 a.m. and prepare to roll out at 10 a.m. The ride is two hours long, ending at noon, when there is a stop for lunch. Bring water and sunscreen, because it’s going to be another beautiful sunny day in Long Beach! Learn More:

Sunnyside Cemetery Cinema: Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Saturday, July 21 | 6:00pm-10:00pm

Founded in 1906, Sunnyside Cemetery is the second oldest cemetery in Long Beach. Support this historic local gem by attending any (or all) of the six film screenings this summer. Saturday kicks off the screening series with the 1988 classic, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" The film is celebrating its 30-year anniversary and it remains one of the most original and fun stories ever put to film—and it’s definitely a classic to share with a younger generation. Gates open at 6 p.m. and the film begins at dusk. Before the movie, enjoy live music, short film trivia, a Roger Rabbit animated short showcase and memorabilia pop-up, and food trucks. For ticket information, visit the link below. Proceeds from ticket sales support Sunnyside Cemetery, Inc. a non-profit organization. Learn More:
