TGIF: Street fair and “Civil War Days”

“CIVIL WAR DAYS” will be held this weekend at Huntington Central Park Saturday and Sunday (Flickr/cclark395)

Labor Day will mean some time off for lots of people, and the Labor Day weekend means some time off for many entertainment venues as well. There aren’t many new film releases this weekend, and all the local live stage theaters are dark. So, maybe you’ll have some fun out of doors instead. Here’s a look at fun stuff in the Garden Grove-Huntington Beach-Westminster area, provided you stay cool.


No blockbusters available this weekend. But here are …

  • “Tulip Fever” tells the story of an unhappy arranged marriage and the frenzy of tulip sales in 17th century Holland. Starring Judi Dench, Matthew Morrison and Cara Delevigne. Rated R.
  • Unlocked.” A disgraced CIA agent is demoted but given a second chance at stopping a terrorist attack. Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Douglas, Orlando Bloom and Toni Collette.
