Things to do in February: Spread the love…

Things to do in February: Do something different…

Things to do in February: Bring the kids…
Get your sugar fix on February 10th & 11th at the LA Cookie Con and Sweets Show. The biggest baking and pastry convention on the west coast has gotten so big that this year it moved to the Anaheim Convention Center, meaning there’s more room for exhibitors, tastings, celebrity and chef meet & greets, workshops, competitions, kids activities and more. Tickets for kids start at $12, while tickets for adults begin at $25.
