Coming out of a heat wave and into some more temperate weather, this weekend in Long Beach will a great time to be out and about. And luckily, there's a lot going on!

Here's some our favorite happenings for the weekend ahead.

Beach Streets

This is your chance to run in the street - or bike in the street. Beach Streets is back where it all began this Saturday, October 28th, at Beach Streets Uptown, in the area of Wardlow and Atlantic, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The event includes entertainment, activities, and a great chance to connect with others in the community, on foot or on bicycle as the orange areas on the map above will be closed to cars. 

Regga artist Barrington Levy will be the headliner at Village Fest at Houghton Park, where there will also be free skate lessons and a demonstration by the BMX Freestyle Team. The Family Hub near Scherer Park will offer face painting, a caricature artist, bike decorating, a rock wall, and a Walk n'Roll Kids Costume Parade at 1 p.m.  At the South Hub on Wardlow and Orange, there will be performances by Tall Walls, The Vooduo and others as well as the Long Beach Ballet's youth rehearsal of the Nutcracker.
