Coming Attractions: Baby Loves Disco; Halloween & Mourning Tours; Artisanal LA

Ready to rock out with the kiddo for a great cause? Well, Baby Loves Disco -- that awesome dance party in the daytime -- is once again hitting Los Angeles, and parents, grandparents, toddlers and preschoolers are invited to join the fun Sunday, Oct. 24 from 12 p.m.-3 p.m. at Cinespace.

The event, presented by clothing retailer H&M, is making its way across the country on a special Lemonade Tour to benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports research to combat childhood cancer.

Baby Loves Disco, which got its start in Philly five years ago, has DJs spinning tunes from the '70s, '80s and today, transforming rockin' venues into child-proof discos. Now that definitely rocks!
