Keep your eyes on the horizon as more than a dozen grand boats—and one giant rubber ducky—make their final ports of call for the Tall Ships Festival. Take an on-board tour or shell out for an open water sail at this Port of LA fest. Landlubbers are in luck, too, with a food and craft fair, musical performances and nautical demos, a la sword fighting and cannon blasts.
If you’ve worked up an appetite, venture to the other side of the port as a good ol' BBQ festival takes over Rainbow Lagoon in Long Beach. While you most likely won’t be manning the grill in the team competition, you can stock up on fresh-fired meats and stuff your face at the all-you-can-eat rib village.
Get all revved up and ready to go to the 10th annual Johnny Ramone Tribute at—where else?—the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Though the tribute concert with Steve Jones, Duff McKagan and Fred Armisen (as his punk rock alter ego, Ian Rubbish) is sold out, you can still catch a simulcast from the lawn as well as a horror memorabilia exhibit and a screening hosted by Rob Zombie. Alright, so maybe this year’s tribute is inexplicably morbid, but we’ll still be prepping our best shaggy bowl cut for this blitzkrieg bop.
