In its season’s first family concert presentation — French composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ celebrated “Carnival of the Animals” at the Alex Theatre in Glendale — the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra proved that not only can music soothe the savage beast, it can engage a youngster’s enthusiasm so completely, you wonder why public schools leave it off the curriculum menu in the first place. Part of the orchestra’s regular season, three family concerts are presented each year in an effort, spokeswoman Nicolette Atkins said, to “make music as accessible as possible to children.

Gary Moskowitz BURBANK VILLAGE -- Several thousand Burbank residents attended the Burbank International Children's Film Festival carnival Saturday and Sunday in the Burbank Village. Chris Shoemaker, executive director of the annual film festival, said the carnival was a chance for Burbank families to come together and celebrate the community they call home. "It was marvelous, because families came and spent time together," Shoemaker said. "At one point, I looked out and saw a kiddie train ride full of mothers and children, all of different ethnic backgrounds, and it was beautiful."

As I type this, the clock is slowly ticking toward the first Tournament of Roses Parade of the new decade. Around this time, 100 years ago, the parade had no theme (and wouldn?t have one until 1918, with the theme of ?Patriotism?). The grand marshals of the 1910 parade were Dr. Francis F. Rowland and professor Charles F. Holder, both founders of the Tournament of Roses Parade. Rowland is the only person with the distinction of having been grand marshal seven times, according to the Tournament of Roses organization.

One of Burbank's best kept secrets, the McCambridge Pool Water Carnival, seems to have gotten even quieter this year. This wonderful family event takes place annually in August. There are carnival games, face painting, a reptile booth, arts and crafts, contests both in and out of the pool broken down by age group, prizes and a raffle. We purchased tickets for four at the mere cost of $12, and the raffle tickets were free upon admission to the carnival. Sadly, attendance was at an all-time low this year, probably due to a lack of public awareness about this great opportunity to come out and show community support while enjoying three hours of family togetherness.

In a quaint backyard near Chandler Boulevard, a helmet-clad executioner clutched a bloody ax as he loomed over a guillotine. Inside the house, the scenes were just as grizzly: a man strapped to an execution chair, a large coffin, scattered body parts on the ground and a dismembered head floating in a fish tank. But the blood and gore was all in good fun, part of a haunted house that Burbank residents Todd Ryan and Kevin Mulligan, aka The Executioner, built to give a sightseers a Halloween scare free of charge.
