Hollywood Park Family Fun Day

There are simply not enough events that bring together activities that both parents and children can enjoy alongside each other. Usually scheduled fun days either focus entirely on kid’s activities or adult activities, but usually they aren’t mixed!

Well, Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California, is looking to change this trend with its Family Day this Sunday, October 17th from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. During most days, Hollywood Park is a premiere race track that opened in June of 1938, which was also the inaugural year of the Hollywood Gold Cup, which would come to be known as Hollywood Park’s signature race. According to the Hollywood Park website:

“The legendary Seabiscuit was victorious in 1938’s inaugural running of the Hollywood Gold Cup, the track’s signature race which would be won 11 times by Thoroughbreds distinguished as Horse of the Year: 1938, Seabiscuit; 1940, Challedon; 1951, Citation; 1956, Swaps; 1957, Round Table; 1971, Ack Ack; 1979, Affirmed; 1987, Ferdinand; 1990, Criminal Type; 1995, Cigar; 1998, Skip Away.”

This Sunday will be quite a day for all of the family to enjoy. While parents take turns betting and watching live horse racing from the stands, the kiddies will be able to enjoy a number of activities – from inflatables to pony rides to face painting. While the Family Fun Day activities start at noon and last until 4, make sure to get to the park before 1 p.m., so you can take part in the live horse racing that’s taking place!

A quick reminder as well, there will also be fun at the Calabasas Pumpkin Festival, coming up this weekend, October 16th and 17th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. This event is taking place at the Juan Bautista de Anza Park, right off the 101 Freeway. Besides pumpkin themed activities, there will be pumpkin beer and baked pumpkin goods! Southern California events just don’t get any better!

New Guidelines for Inflatable Bouncy Rides Being Looked At

Bouncy rides have become a staple of any good children’s party.  Kids really enjoy being able to bounce around on their favorite type of house or even cartoon character.  Who are we kidding – adults love them too!  But recently, some concerns about inflatable bouncy house safety have called the lack of restrictions surrounding bounce-style rides into question.

These matters aren’t entirely unfounded – as recently as this past April, three young children (ages 2, 5 and 7) in El Paso, Texas, were injured when a bounce house they were playing in, was blown up ten feet into the air and across the street from their yard.  This article says that at least two of the children were seriously injured because the house was not tethered properly to the ground.

A group in Wichita, Kansas, is currently looking to put an ordinance into place that would circumvent major safety concerns about the security of such bouncy rides.  The current ordinance only covers companies that rent or permanently own inflatable bounce rides at events, but as more families begin to own inflatable amusement rides, officials believe that a new set of rules and provisions should be put into place.  Some of these would potentially include:

  • Inflatables would have to be inspected several times a year – not just once.
  • Training measures would become much stricter – non-profit groups that own bouncy rides and families that would privately rent inflatables would have to receive training, even if professionals would be running the rides.
  • Ride inspections would have to be more specific and connected to a harsher set of guidelines.
  • Anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol would be banned from getting on such an inflatable.

These new rules may not be a bad idea, if only to remind people to be safe when operating such rides.  So remember to always have safety concerns on mind when holding an event featuring a bouncy castle or Spongebob Squarepants.  First comes safety, then comes the fun!
