A Farmers Market and Grove double feature
We celebrated the L.A. Farmers Market's 75th anniversary today by heading over to 3rd and Fairfax to take in the festivities and nose around for any leftover cake.
We missed the official birthday ceremony this morning at 8 a.m., which was hosted by comedian Jeff Garlin and included the USC marching band and clock tower cake presentation. But we did make it for the Nickelodeon Barbershop Quartet, who strolled through the market as we ate our chicken tacos.
We also got to experience Gwendolyn and the Good Time Gang, who were performing for the weekly Kids Club event at the Grove. And we even bumped into fellow LA Moms Blog contributor Kim from House of Prince.
CC got to dance some more and walked right up to the stage to get a little closer to other kiddies and the Gang.
This time, however, I put her in a dress so as to avoid any, ahem, wardrobe malfunctions.
The 75th anniversary celebrations continue through Sunday, July 19.
