School’s just around the corner, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had with this Fab Five of family outings for the waning days of summer:
1. Ferris Bueller on the big screen – Anyone? Anyone? – a back-to-school outdoor bash tonight at the Livermore Community Center.
2. One last campout in the backyard or at a nearby park like San Rafael’s China Camp. Check it out in this week’s “Taking the Kids” column.
3. Star gazing or a lunar eclipse? Chabot Space Center is hosting “Once in a Red Moon: Total Lunar Eclipse” – a full moon hike, lunar activities, and big fun in the wee hours Aug. 27-28.
4. Get thee to the theater! Grab your older teens or college-age kids and head to the City for “Avenue Q,” the hilarious Tony Award-winning musical that riffs on “Sesame Street” and life as a 20-something.
