  • Circus Vargas
    The first thing people notice about Circus Vargas is its big-top tent. Hand-fashioned in Milan from 90,000 square feet of cerulean-blue and sunshine-yellow fabric, the canopy, along with spotlights and saw-dust-covered floors, completed the illusion of an elegant lost era when used in the 2011 film Water for Elephants. The last thing people notice is the absence of animals. They're too busy gaping at a man balancing a 12-step ladder with his mouth. Keeping its marvels strictly human, Circus Vargas builds on a 40-year history by blending classic feats of fearlessness with surprising new tricks. The show features magic tricks along with a skilled hand balancer, a speed juggler, and the wheel of destiny.

  • Winner's Circle BBQ Championship Santa Anita
    The sound of galloping horses and the scent of barbecued meats fill the air during the annual Winner's Circle BBQ Championship Santa Anita. Grill masters from across the state and country travel to Santa Anita Park to pit their slow-cooked, wood-fired chicken, pork, and beef against one another in the daylong event. The winner not only receives cash prizes and the recognition of best barbecue in California but also goes on to represent the state in national cook-off events. Attendees receive the tastiest side of the arrangement, as those bearing tasting tickets can nibble samples of the competitors' best slices and vote for the People's Choice winner. They can also partake in carnival games, face painting, pony rides, and jumping sessions inside an inflatable jump house. The horses of Santa Anita Park conjure even more excitement as they speed through the track during live races viewable from the park's infield, where the cook-off is held.

  • Street Food Cinema
    Spanning spring through the fall, Street Food Cinema rolls out more than fifty events in eleven different locations over 27 weeks. This showcase highlights the greatest hits of the silver screen and the LA food-truck scene, as well as music from emerging music artists such as The Rebel Light. When the gates open, guests spread blankets on the grass and pop open coolers. Live bands play until dusk, when crowd-pleasing movies such as Fight Club and The Sandlot light up the big screen. Meanwhile, a rotating food-truck schedule assembles a diverse curbside lineup, which might include fresh seafood from Cousins Maine Lobster or the gooey delights of The Grilled Cheese Truck. Their events also feature movie-themed games projected on the big screen for audience participation. Street Food Cinema's eclectic assemblage of food, music, and films has picked up attention beyond the park's bounds, snagging mentions on NBC4, We Like LA, and The Washington Post. Other videos of the events in action can be seen here. It's also become known for its philanthropic work: each year the organization supports several charities.
