South Bay Has Art, Roller Derby And The Race This Weekend

So many things going on this weekend it is hard to narrow down my picks! An fun event for families is the free day of art at the Malaga Cove Art Show from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday at Malaga Cove Plaza. The Malaga Cove Art Show is a 59 year tradition of the Palos Verdes Art Center's seven artists groups where you chat with the artists and view their work. Approximately 30 artists affiliated with the PVAC will show and sell their ceramics, jewelry and acrylic, oil and watercolor paintings. Of course, you'll also want to make sure to grab some of the yummy treats from the Ranch Market or have a leisurely French brunch at the Yellow Vase.

If you are looking for a way for the family to celebrate the spiritual aspect of Easter while the kids have a blast at a carnival, the Journey of Faith in Manhattan Beach has The Race Saturday afternoon. There will be race cars, a snow hill, bounce houses, Razor Rip Riders, face painting, toddler games, a live DJ, popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones and a bunch of fun activities. Lunch will be served all day and Hot Dog on a Stick and Buffalo Fire Department (a great Torrance burger joint) will be providing the food.

The Los Angeles revival of the Roller Derby craze has not missed the South Bay and Saturday night marks the opening of the season for the Beach Cities Roller Derby home teams. Held at the Wilson Park Rink in Torrance, the Redondo Riots will take on the Hermosa Hit Girls. Physically demanding and super athletic, BCRD strives to inspire women and girls to "embrace their inner strength through this physically demanding sport while entertaining fans and enriching our community". They volunteer often with things such as trash cleanup, ocean conservation, feeding the homeless and Walk for the Cure...just don't mess with them on game night!

Also, if you have any items that you were thinking about giving to Goodwill, you might want to go to the Ralph's in El Segundo on Sepulveda. Manhattan Beach's Noah’s Bark Dog Rescue is hosting a Goodwill donation drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will accept clothes, shoes, antiques, electronics, books, toys, tools, sporting goods, audio/video equipment and more. Donations are tax-deductible and receipts will be provided, and money raised will go directly toward the medical care and well-being of injured and sick homeless dogs. Find more info here.
