Yoga Mind + Body Studio at Pretend City

Stretching, breathing, and mindfulness practices are some of Gina’s favorite things to share with your children! These three components help children self-soothe, find a sense of calm, move and groove, and have fun in an engaging way. Mindfulness begins in the early years! Giving your child tools to deal with difficult and big emotions will help them in the long run! Have your child smell a pretend rose and blow out a pretend candle to instill breathing techniques to help calm them down.

Home Opening at Pretend City

Pretend City is excited to educate guests about Tongan and Samoan cultures and traditions. Grandpa and Grandma, Steven and Lita Fifita, share a home with their two daughters, son-in-law and grandson. Multigenerational homes are very common for Pacific Islander families and the Fifita household is always open for friends and family! Daughters Melenaite and Melevesi welcome family all year round as well as members of the community. Melevesi’s son, Kelly, has grown a love for gardening with his grandpa and grow their own food to make traditional dishes like Lu Pulu and Kumala. Whether you are joining a family lunch or a contestant during the cooking challenge at Fifita Christmas, this family will make you feel loved and never let you forget where you came from.

Spider Pavilion at the South Coast Botanic Garden

While hundreds of butterflies have been fluttering about our pavilion for the past few years, a new arthropod will be calling the area home as hundreds of spiders take over the pavilion from October 1 through November 30. Much like SOAR, guests can purchase an additional timed ticket to enter the pavilion for 30 minutes to be surrounded by orb-weaving spiders like Trichonephila clavipes (golden silk orb-weaver), Argiope aurantia (yellow garden spider), Gasteracantha (spiny orb-weaver), Leucauge (orchard spider) and Araneus (Angulate orbweavers). While these spiders will be living freely in the pavilion, there will be some additional tarantulas inside glass cases. The Emergence Chamber will be turned into our Spider Wall that will educate guests about the brown widow, which was “discovered” in Torrance in 2003 as an invasive species on the West Coast. Tickets to the Spider Pavilion are an additional $5/Member and $7/non-Member.
