Go Metro Weekends, Oct 17 – 19

Fresh fruits, veggies and more at this weekend’s Los Angeles Farmers Market!


Run for your life this Friday at Haunted Hollywood Sports at the Hollywood Sports Park in Bellflower. From 8 p.m. to midnight, you’ll get a chance to escape from the creepiest ghouls and goblins in Southern California. $30 admission will get you into three interactive mazes, a pop-up nightclub and two scare zones. For those who get away, a $10 ticket is the reward–and you can use it to pay for the privilege of shooting zombies with a paintball gun. The ticket box opens at 7:30 p.m. Gate open at 8 p.m. Don’t miss out on the spooky adventure! (Metro Bus 266 to Lakewood/Somerset or Metro Bus 127 to Somerset/Touchwood.)

Witness the rhythmic sounds of tap in a live performance from the Los Angeles based touring company, Rhapsody In Taps. The annual children’s show is free to the public and will be held at the Aratani Theatre from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Watch nine tap dancers and the six jazz musicians who accompany them showcase the rich heritage of jazz and choreographed performance. The show is designed for 4th through 8th grade students. Seats must be reserved prior to attending. (Metro Gold Line to Little Tokyo/Arts District Station.)


Enjoy your Saturday morning with the family picking fresh fruit and veggies at The Wall – Food, Flowers, & Farmers Market located at 755 Wall Street in the Fashion District at 10:30 a.m. The event provides inexpensive food grown from some of California’s smaller farms. Show your valid TAP card and receive free admission to the Original LA Flower Market and a rose from a farmer. (Metro Red or Purple Line to Pershing Square Station and walk 4 blocks toward 7th Street, or Metro Bus 68 to 6th/Los Angeles.)


For some kid-friendly, Halloween fun, attend the Farmers Market free Fall Festival for arts and crafts, entertainment, pie-eating contests and much more! The festival also features a petting zoo and other special acts. Don’t forget to take your best fall themed photo and tag #FMFallFestival on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win a prize package, including a $50 Farmers Market gift certificate! (Metro Bus 217, 218, 16/316, 780 to 3rd/Fairfax.)
