A festive time in DTLA this weekend

Instead of adding these events into my Go See Hear for this week, I thought I’d just do a quick alert about some cool events happening in downtown L.A.

Grand Ave by Disney Hall will be the site of a block party celebrating the Hall’s 10th anniversary. There will be dance lessons (and actual dancing), music, happenings, art projects  and much merriment. Learn more about 10x The Party at the musicccenter.org.

The South African Arts Festival 2013 will also be happening downtown this weekend. On Saturday, there will be a day of free musical performances by a variety of South African acts at Grand Performances in California Plaza. Highlighting this concert will be a set by jazz legend Hugh Masekela.

On Sunday, the Regal Cinema will host a series of screenings of South African films. The screenings as well as the Grand Performances will all be free. Just some things to keep in mind when planning your weekend activities.
