Car kidsThe Bay Bridge is closed! closed! closed! this weekend, but there’s still plenty of ways to have fun with the fam in the East Bay. Here’s a quintet of Labor Day weekend possibilities:

1. A club, a ball and a round of mini golf in Antioch, Livermore, Fairfield and beyond.

2. Falling stars, a rare comet and a family campout at Livermore’s Sycamore Grove Park, Aug. 31-Sept. 1. ($12 per person or $45 for a family of five, call for reservations 925-960-2400.)

3. The 142nd Scottish Highland Gathering & Games come to Pleasanton Sept. 1-2. Caber tosses, bagpipes, kilts and more.

4. Peter Pan, Hook and the gang arrive at Walnut Creek’s Lesher Center for the Arts this weekend when Diablo Light Opera Company presents the musical version of “Peter Pan.”

5. Cabooses abound when the Historical Rail Fair chugs onto the tracks at Ardenwood, Fremont’s heavenly historical ranch, Sept. 1-3.
