Lot of Life To Live 10/12/12: LA Decom, Oysterfest, Highland Games & More
This Saturday’s competing events in Ventura County and LA include LA Decompression (1pm to dawn), the Ventura Oysterfest at the Ventura State Beach (11-6pm), the Highland Games at Seaside Park (also Sunday), StoryFest (at the ESC from 9-3pm), Leo Kotke at Libbey Bowl in Ojai as well as the Ojai Studio Artists self guided tour (also Sunday)…and I am sure I am forgetting a few things!
Starting Thursday, Burners from SoCal have been setting up for Saturday Oct. 13’s 10th Official Los Angeles Burning Man Decompression Arts and Music Festival featuring a large art installation created by the burner community “Seraphim: The Spirit of Unification” with four angels guarding a vortex. The installation was supposed to burn but because of fire hazards, the burn was cancelled. Of course, then it rained like crazy in LA but the fire was already cancelled.
Even without the inaugural burn, the event has so much to offer there’s an app for it: LA Decompression 2012! and it will last until dawn this year. Located at Los Angeles State Historic Park 1245 N. Spring St Los Angeles, CA 90012 within walking distance of Union Station downtown, tickets are an affordable $20 1pm-7pm, $25 7pm-midnight, $30 midnight – 2am (no entry after 2am). All children 12 and under are free when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian
