What a difference a year makes. The L.A. Auto Show, open now through Nov. 28, has bounced back from last year's drastically scaled back spectacle to offer visitors more than 50 world and North American debuts of production and concept vehicles.
Ready or not, the holiday season is here! The kickoff to the holiday season in the Santa Clarita Valley is always the bright and beautiful Festival of Trees event to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley.
One of the SCV's signature events takes place this Sunday, Nov. 7, when the Santa Clarita Marathon again takes to the streets and paseos of Valencia. Hundreds of participants will pound the pavement and their supporters and other onlookers will cheer them on during what should be a beautiful, sunny morning.
I'm fascinated with ghosts. It's fun to think that a disembodied spirit might be hanging around - ready to pop up and shout "boo." Everyone likes a good scare now and again.
There's something about a sea of orange pumpkins that just says "fall," and when you combine your pumpkin hunt with scarecrows, hay pyramids, pony rides, crafts and other seasonal entertainment, your soul can't help but soften into autumn mode, be it Halloween or beyond.

If you've ever wanted to let your inner "crazy" out, or just enjoy watching other people do it in an environment where you know you won't be harmed, the Santa Clarita Valley Improv Festival is for you.

The end is near for the dinosaurs. You might have believed the dinosaurs became extinct millions of years ago, but anyone who has witnessed the remarkable show "Walking with Dinosaurs" knows better.
We already know Jeff Probst is an Emmy winner this year, as is Betty White. While it might have been more fun to see those awards presented at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards show to be seen live Sunday on NBC, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences can't present every award live.
Make no mistake, this is not a statistical survey, reader poll or contest.

If you are a pilot, air show aficionado, flight enthusiast or merely like to "Oooo" and "Ahhh," your next two weekends are already planned for you. Two thrilling air shows are on tap: this weekend in Santa Paula, and next weekend in Camarillo.
