The daylong celebration will feature educational family activities representing major cities and cultures in Southern California.
With the inspirational “Fight Song” selling over two million copies in the U.S. and riding high on iTunes and radio charts, Platten joins a lineup of family-friendly music acts that include Ozokidz, presented by Ozomatli, Lisa Loeb, Lucky Diaz and The Family Jam Band, and Rhythm Child. Magician and comedian Justin Willman – the host of Cupcake Wars – will also mesmerize audiences.
The collaborative day of music, food and entertainment will benefit seven local non-profit groups fighting for rights and resources for the youth of Los Angeles.
Attendees can also play soccer with the LA Galaxy Foundation, toss footballs with Ameri-I-Can, explore with Kidspace Children’s Museum, kayak and fish with the National Park Service, face-paint with Hollywood makeup artists, visit with animals from STAR Eco Station and many more.
All net proceeds from the festival will benefit Los Angeles children’s charities, including Ameri-I-Can, CASA of Los Angeles, Happy Trails for Kids, Junior Achievement of Southern California, Richstone Family Center and the LA Galaxy Foundation.
