    West Hollywood Offered Spring Fest and More this Past Weekend

    There was a lot to see and do in the City of West Hollywood this past weekend especially on Saturday April 15, 2023. From a a protest defending Drag Story Hour, to Drag Story Hour returning after being on hiatus during the pandemic, to the annual planting of a tree event at Plummer Park, to the Honeycomb Harmonies art installation by Keenan Hartsten, to the CERT Community Emergency Response Training with LA County Fire Department at the Aquatic and Recreation Center to West Hollywood’s Recreation Services Division’s Spring Fest event which kicked off the season this year.

    Spring Fest was the most action-packed event and it didn’t even make the calendar section in the weho.org website. The event took over the Great Lawn at West Hollywood Park and they had special activities in the pool area at the Aquatics and Recreation Center. From 11am to 2pm, children and their adult companions had the chance to enjoy various booths with games and giveaway, music from DJ Prince William, and some free snacks and refreshments.

    There were also games for grown folks. A dunking tank had them lining up to dunk a City Staffer in what was probably not very warm water. However most of the pitchers missed, but some of them hit the target.

    A WeHo City press release mentioned two featured events for Spring Fest, which were cardboard boat races and “themed rec swims”. What it failed to mention was that the cardboard boat races were taking place in the West Hollywood pool, which is not something you see every day and seemed like a lot of fun.

    It also turns out the themed rec swims presentation was actually a performance by Olympic USA Artistic Swimming team who showed up early to practice and then performed a water dance that showcased their aquatic gymnast skills for those who registered to see the show.
