Family-Friendly Things to Do: September 28-30

Opening Night @ Pa’s Pumpkin Patch

Friday, September 28 | 3:00pm-9:00pm

Pa’s Pumpkin Patch | 6701 E. PCH, Long Beach 90803

Yup, it’s definitely that time of year again and without fail, the twinkle lights and corn husks will be encircling droves of kiddies and their empty-pocketed parents. BUT, who can resist at least one trip to Pa’s during the fall?! My guess is that opening night is going to be one of the more mellow nights, making it THE perfect time to go. The only thing that would make it even better is a sale on ride tickets or even pumpkins (you listening Pa?) Regardless, Pa will be serving up a good time with pony rides, bounce houses, a petting zoo, face painting, carnival games, photo ops, train ride, deluxe hot chocolate, trampolines and fun houses. Pa also claims to have “new mechanical rides,” which, I will admit, I am curious to see. Bottom line, kids have FUN and the whole family makes memories! Learn More:

St. Cornelius Fall Fiesta!

Friday-Sunday, September 28-30 | Friday 5:00pm-10:00pm, Saturday 3:00pm-10:00pm + Sunday 1:00pm-7:00pm

St. Cornelius Catholic School | 3330 Bellflower Blvd, Long Beach 90808

This is on our family’s annual “to attend” list, and this year seems to be full of adult-ish activities that I don’t recall seeing in the past. Some of these activities include wine and craft beer tasting, NFL breakfast, and tri-tip dinner. Looks like I’m really going to get into the Fiesta spirit this year! Kids young and old will still enjoy the carnival-style games and generous card punching victories. This fiesta doesn’t disappoint when it comes to food, music and community. Add it to your “to attend” list and meet us at the beer garden! Learn More:

Fairy Wings for Halloween Workshop

Saturday + Sunday, September 29-30 | 10:00am-11:30pm

Dream Come True Party Room | 3962 N Studebaker Rd, Long Beach 90808

Dream Come True Party Room is where all your fairy fantasies…well…come true. Bring your little ones into this magical space, where Studebaker meets Los Coyotes, to be surrounded by friends, enchanted music, and, likely, loads of glitter. Little ones will create their own quality durable wings—perfect for Halloween or any imaginative play. Register as soon as your interest is peaked because, like other similar events, these cushioned seats fill fast. Learn More:

Classic Rock Party at The ELDO

Saturday, September 29 | 9:00pm-11:45pm

The ELDO | 3014 N. Studebaker Rd, Long Beach 90808

This one is for the adults after a long evening at Pa’s Pumpkin Patch (read above). A tag line for the event is “Come Thirsty, Stay Late.” Doesn’t that sound like folks at The ELDO are ready to throw a kickass party?! The ELDO has existed since 1957 and they are truly building momentum for a second wind! Frankly Speaking Band will be rocking the house while you and your pals are quenching that thirst mentioned earlier. Put your tennis shoes away and break out the good garb—this one is gonna be fun!
