A local beach city is making racing history this weekend. It's hosting the "Red Bull Global Rallycross Competition." KTLA's Gayle Anderson tells us where to go check out this cool event plus over fun activities you can do this weekend.
Saturday @ 11:00 a.m.

Shuttle Service Provided To/From Open House
Hyatt Westlake Village
880 South Westlake Boulevard
Catch a breeze this hot weekend at the awarding winning Blu Homes Breezehouse, the first-ever Real Simple and This Old House “2014 Dream Home of the Year.”
It’s packed with luxurious features, soaring ceilings, and more in a home that’s prefabricated, built in a factory and designed to fold so it can be delivered to the location of your choice.
CANstruction OC 2014
South Coast Plaza
3333 Bristol Street
This is a different kind of construction. It’s CANstruction Orange County, a “food raiser” for the Orange County Food Bank. Local architects and designers have created structures using cans goods that will be donated to the food bank.
In conjunction with the unusual artwork, there’s Festival of Children. Bring a can good for the Orange County Food Bank to the festival for a special surprise.
CANSTRUCTION OC is on display now through the end of the month.

6th Annual Walk n’ Roll for Ataxia Awareness & Research
340 South Pine Avenue
Observe International Ataxia Awareness Day at the 6th Annual Walk n’ Roll.
The 1K event begins near the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.
All proceeds benefit the National Ataxia Foundation, an organization working to find cure for the neurological disorder that make it difficult to walk or pick up objects.
Time is running out to enjoy the Los Angeles County Fair, described as one of the largest county fairs in the country. There’s fair fun, fair rides, and fair food, but the most welcome sight for fairgoers this year might be the 8,000 square feet of new shading, hundreds of new umbrella tables, 200 yards of overhead water misters, plus extra air conditioning units blasting cool air on indoor exhibits.
The nonprofit county fair has invested about $500,000 to make sure visitors can find some respite when the mercury rises to that OMG level.

Drought Tolerant Landscaping
Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers & Native Plants
10459 Tuxford Street
Our current drought restrictions limiting water use have resulted in a renewed interest in native gardens as a drought-friendly alternative to grass lawns. Those interested in water conservation can learn all about native gardens and plants at the THEODORE PAYNE FOUNDATION FOR WILD FLOWERS AND NATIVE PLANTS, which offers classes on native garden design and maintenance.
Saturday, learn about “Native Plants – Planting for Success: Installation, Establishment and First Year Care,” and “Four Seasons of Color with California Natives.”

Red Bull Global Rallycross
Port of Los Angeles
3011 Miner Street
After making its debut at the Port of Los Angeles in April, Red Bull Global Rallycross returns to the San Pedro waterfront for its seventh event of the 2014 season.
With the roots of rallycross in America firmly entrenched in southern California, a victory in LA would be a hometown triumph for many of the series’ stars.
