Schoolâ€™s just around the corner, but thereâ€™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 â€“ 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 Rafaelâ€™s China Camp. Check it out in this weekâ€™s â€śTaking the Kidsâ€ť column.
3. Star gazing or a lunar eclipse? Chabot Space Center is hosting â€śOnce in a Red Moon: Total Lunar Eclipseâ€ť â€“ 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 â€śAvenue Q,â€ť the hilarious Tony Award-winning musical that riffs on â€śSesame Streetâ€ť and life as a 20-something.
