Another Busy Saturday of Work and Play

Morning Mission: Be Safe, Clean the Seashore

This morning, you could attend the City of Los Angeles Emergency Preparedness Fair (10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Harbor City; see details in last week’s story).

Alternatively, you could head to Cabrillo Beach to take part in California Coastal Cleanup Day. Volunteers will meet at the outer beach at 9 a.m. and scrub the shore until 12 noon. The cleanup will be followed by an open house and refreshments at the salt marsh, Salinas de San Pedro, from 12-2 p.m.

Afternoon Mission: Love the Lobsters

This weekend’s Lobster Festival is serving up food, music and entertainment from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. 7 p.m. Sunday.

Find a seat.

Feast on lobster, cole slaw, a roll and “buttery topping.” First-class ticketholders get watermelon, too. Repeat as necessary.

Evening Mission: Music for Many Tastes

Those with contemporary musical tastes may enjoy the lobster festival’s lineup of popular and up-and-coming bands.

For a multicultural experience in an intimate setting, Japanese drummers are performing at the Saturday night debut of the Grand Annex. See details in last week’s story.
