Here are our suggestions of things to do in Los Angeles this weekend…

CicLAvia
The term CicLAvia (Spanish for “bike way”) can also be used to describe a temporary closing of LA’s streets. The event—inspired by the first Ciclovías in Bogotá, Colombia—welcomes bikes, tricycles, skateboards, strollers and smiles (sounds cheesy, but it’s true) to ride a rotating cast of car-free routes. While most rides center around Downtown, past events have taken the event to Wilshire Boulevard, Venice and South LA. Wherever it is, expect music, street performances and food trucks, as well as general whimsy and shenanigans. Shop owners and restaurants along the CicLAvia route will also open their doors. It goes without saying that you should bike or take the Metro to your desired spot along the route.

Here are our suggestions of things to do in Los Angeles this weekend…

Tapia Brothers Farm Pumpkin Patch

Get lost. No really, get lost in Tapia Brothers Farm’s (5251 Hayvenhurst Ave) epic corn maze (an entire lot across from the patch itself) with a much-needed map and a sheet full of trivia questions. Scavenge through the maze for the answers and once you’ve found them all, submit your name in a drawing for a chance to win $100 cash—an early treat for your navigation efforts. The festive pumpkin patch also offers—you guessed it—pumpkins galore, as well as a fresh farmers’ market (with addicting kettle corn), a mouth-watering roasted corn stand, kids play area, bounce houses, hay wagon ride, tractor-pulled train and weekend-only pony rides.
