Start teaching your pooch how to carve waves because Huntington Beach’s annual surf dog competition is right around the corner. You’ll find multiple heats on Saturday, broken up by size and style (some pups surf solo, some tandem with their humans). It’s one of those have-to-see-it-to-believe-it events that you simply can’t miss.
September may signal the end of summertime, but you’d never know it judging by the absolutely stacked lineup of things to do this month. It’s as if every postponed event said “let’s just do it in September,” and now here we are, with dozens upon dozens of concerts, screenings and exhibitions that are too good to pass up.
You’d also never know summer’s winding down based on the weather. It’s arguably the optimal time to visit one of L.A.’s best beaches while the water’s still, relatively speaking, warm and not overrun by crowds. On the other hand, if you’re feeling like you already have a foot in the fall, it’s time to start making plans to go apple picking (though that’s looking like more of an October thing this year). And if you’d rather skip town, take advantage of the long Labor Day weekend to squeeze in a day trip. But don’t worry, there’s no shortage of other local fun in L.A. in our September events calendar.
