What a wonderful way to ring an end to the summer! I was last here six years ago, and though the bouncing ball has given way to a higher-tech color-changing scheme, the crowd was still festive and lively. This year's costume contest winners were a group of children dressed in shiny gold bodysuits; standing on top of small platforms, they were dressed as the Oscars won by the Sound of Music. Their grandmother found the fabric and made the suits for them. Super cool.
If you're in LA about this time, the Hollywood Bowl is a quintessential summer outing. Next year we plan on checking out the "Grease" sing-along. Who's in?!
