The LA Parks Department website doesn’t even have this event on their calendar, so that is all the info I could find.   And I’m not sure what constitutes “exciting crafts” but I’m intrigued.  Here’s what a google search for “exciting crafts for kids” found:

Kid's crafts

The website says they are “Flying Finger Boomerangs” but they look suspiciously like Chinese Throwing Stars to me.  Let’s hope this isn’t the “exciting craft” that the LA Parks Department has in mind.
