Get ready for the weekend, El Segundo, because the wet weather is finally over! The LA Unified Teachers’ strike is still in full swing, however. This weekend, let’s reflect on how important our El Segundo educators are to our community, and support them however we can. One way to help out is by participating in school events and fundraisers like the one coming up this Saturday for El Segundo High Schools Band!

There’s lots more to do this weekend too, like trying some new eats during DineLA Restaurant Week, checking out the 12th Annual Slack Key Festival, and listening to some sweet jams at the Concerts in the Library series. Happy weekend!
