*Giveaway* Hollywood Bowl Boasts a Family-Friendly Summer

2nd UPDATE: Congrats to Comiendo en LA, who won the two tickets to Pixar in Concert! Please email me at with your preferred date. Thanks to everyone who participated, and I'll announce Diana Krall winners next Thursday, July 19.

UPDATE: Congrats to you big baby!, who won the two tickets to see Frozen Planet in Concert. Please email me at with your preferred date. Thanks to everyone who participated, and stay tuned for more winners next week!

The Hollywood Bowl has a great summer planned for families, and I have a trio of giveaways that should make any parent eager for an entertaining night out under the stars.

I have to say, I love the Bowl. I've been a couple of times -- once with CC and friends to see Randy Newman and others perform, and once with a friend of mine to see The Sound of Music sing-a-long, which I highly recommend! (Hello, laser pointers and Lederhosen!)

It's gorgeous, casual and always a treat.

They've got a lot going on this summer (stay tuned for my Summersounds for Kids post!), and first up is Frozen Planet in Concert.

Co-produced by the BBC and the Discovery Channel, Frozen Planet will be premiering at the Bowl next weekend, July 6 & 7 at 8 p.m. The documentary explores the polar region and, in the Bowl screening, will combine live orchestral music with HD footage of our planet's snowy life.

Also on the Bowl's calendar are the following family-friendly concerts:

* Joshua Bell Plays Mendelssohn (July 17 & 19)
* Pixar in Concert (Aug. 3-5)
* Diana Krall (Aug. 24 & 25)
* Brian Setzer Orchestra (Sept. 14-16)

*** GIVEAWAY ***

I'm really so excited about this! I'm giving away 2 tickets to each of the following performances -- Frozen Planet in Concert, Pixar in Concert and Diana Krall.

To enter, leave a comment below telling me which performance you'd like to see and why. Please be sure to note the date and time, and make sure you're available.

For more chances to win, follow me on Twitter and retweet this giveaway. I'm at @la_story. Or you can "Like" the L.A. Story Facebook page and share the giveaway.

Just be sure to leave extra comments telling me you did so.

Good luck, and I will announce the Frozen Planet winners on Tuesday, July 3, and the Pixar and Diana Krall winners on Thursday, July 12!

I would like to go to the Pixar In Concert Series. Either day (Aug 3-5) @ 8:00pm would be fine.

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity for my children to be exposed to instrumental music, while enjoying their favorite Pixar characters. Also, we have never been tot he Hollywood Bowl.

I would love to attend the Pixar In Concert either Aug 4 or 5 at 8pm.

What a great way to introduce kids to the Bowl! It's one of my FAVORITE things about living in L.A. but I haven't taken Aubrey yet. I don't know how I'd get her to walk up and down that big hill! LOL!

Very much interested in the Pixar concert! (preferably Aug 5, but Aug 3 or 4 works too)

The orchestrations by Pixar composers Randy Newman, Thomas Newman, and Michael Giacchino really know how to bring out the emotional gravitas of any given scene, whether it be intensely kinetic or quietly poignant. And to have an opportunity to hear Giacchino's compositions at the Bowl, especially for The Incredibles, Ratatouille & Up, would be nothing short of amazing.
