If you’re an avid reader of this website you probably don’t need any extra incentive to explore Los Angeles. But just in case…

Obscura Day 2015!

What is Obscura Day, you ask? Well, it’s a special occasion every year organized by Atlas Obscura when more than 150 events are held in 39 states and 25 countries, all on a single day, and all designed to celebrate the world’s most curious and awe-inspiring places.

Basically, a kick in the pants to get out the see the gems that are hiding in plain sight all round you.

There are more than a dozen Obscura Day events scheduled in Los Angeles for this Saturday, May 30th, with everything from Falconry (sweeeeeet), abandoned hospitals, niche museums and an afternoon pinball party. First event kicks off at 5:00am and last one finishes up in the early evening.

I’ll be honest and say I think some of these are a tad overpriced (you probably don’t need to pay $15 to have a guide take you up to Mt. Hollywood… my opinion) but I definitely see the appeal of many of the others.

Check out the full rundown of events below and see if you like anything. Links go to ticketing pages on Eventbrite where you can get more info on each item.

And, of course, if you need other stuff to do this weekend check out our latest weekly/weekend to-dos.

Enjoy!
