Even L.A. landmarks deserve a great first birthday — and Grand Park is no exception. The downtown venue is turning a year old in style, with a One-Year Anniversary Celebration Picnic that's free to the masses. With live blues featured for the park's annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days concert, it's a great way to get the whole family outside enjoying themselves. Want to give back without coughing up a few mil? Sprinkles is offering a special Grand Park strawberry cupcake at its downtown location on Thursday and throughout the week, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the city-owned park. No RSVP is required for this celebration — Grand Park is just chill like that. Grand Park Performance Lawn, dwntwn.; Thurs., Oct. 10, 7-10 p.m., free.
