The Spider Pavillion is open at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

This year’s Pavilion will showcase several tarantulas and eight-eyed jumping spiders.

Blue Moon Diamond
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

Los Angeles

Take a look at this! It’s the 12-carat "Blue Moon Diamond," one of the world's newest and rarest gems. The stone, on loan from Cora International, a leading manufacturer and supplier of white and fancy colored diamonds, is on view in a special Gem Vault exhibition at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. The Blue Moon Diamond has been categorized as an extremely significant find – and one of the newest and rarest stones currently worldwide – due to its unique color, clarity, and size. Cut from a 29.6-carat rough, the internally flawless gem is fashioned in a cushion-cut shape at 12 carats.

Lucas Off Road Expo

 Want some wilder wheels? The 2014 Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo Powered by General Tire offers the greatest collection of off-road companies, parts, equipment, gear, and experts ever assembled in America.  From off-road racing to rock crawling, trail riding to sand sports, to motorcycles and ATV's, to camping and adventure travel, you have the unique opportunity to meet and talk with the most knowledgeable people in the off-road industry.  With a full weekend of excitement, 60,000+ attendees and over 300 off-road vendors in one location, you will see everything that is going on in the dynamic world of off-road. Experience the brand new Red Bull experience called Straight Rhythm, an “unwound" Supercross track. There are no turns, just a 1/2 mile-long straight rhythm section.  The innovative format will pit a field of 32 riders against each other in a head-to-head best-of-three bracket format.  By isolating just the whoops, triples, doubles, table tops and step on/offs, riders must focus exclusively on reading the terrain directly in front of them and correctly judging their speed for precise distance and control.
