This Hollywood treatment?complete with costumes and props?comes courtesy of the Magic Moment Photo Booth's "Extravaganza" booth package, which features a large, closed-in booth that can accommodate groups of photo subjects. Their team can also set up an open-air booth or a smaller, curtained model that looks like the classic photo booths found at carnivals and fairs.

Additionally, Magic Moment Photo Booth's team adds special touches with upgrades such as memory books and video recording.

Buses coast down sunny avenues lined with palm trees and pastel-colored buildings. Many of these buildings boast complex histories?as music venues, film studios, boarding schools for stuntmen, and more?that synced audio tracks and charming tour guides divulge during Rockin Hollywood Tours' interactive excursions. On each tour, groups pass more than 70 sites around the streets of Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and West Hollywood. Guides expound on well-known landmarks such as the Hollywood sign, the Jim Henson Company lot (the former home of Charlie Chaplin Studios), and the Playboy Mansion. They also lead riders through musical history and Elton John's personal diaries as they pass venues including Whisky A Go Go, the Troubadour, and Capitol Records studios. Driving through residential areas, guides also point out the past and present homes of celebrities such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Eddie Murphy, and Nicolas Cage.

Scratch DJ Academy founders Rob Principe and the late Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC opened the academy in 2001 to lower the barrier of entry for learning its eponymous art form. Today, its talented faculty know that juggling beats can be harder than juggling irritated porcupines, and their skill at teaching the complex art has drawn media attention from the likes of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. The academy?s instructors include Grandwizard Theodore, who began DJing at 13, and Rob Swift, who claims a resum? with a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and a collaboration with Herbie Hancock.
