Family reunions

Do you have a family reunion coming up? Instead of doing a traditional family picnic where everyone just sits around, consider some of these alternative ideas such as a food tour in California where you and your family can enjoy a shared experience that you won’t soon forget!

Group dance lesson

Get your aunts and cousins to show their moves as you hit the dance floor with a group dance lesson! There are a number of dance studios in Los Angeles offering group dance lessons – many of which are discounted when there are multiple people! Learn salsa, line dancing, jazz, ballroom and so many other styles! Afterward, have a dance party and show off your new found skills!

Themed Party

If you’re going to have a party, might as well make it themed! One popular theme is the 80s! Bring out your brightest neon leg warmers and the bigger your hair is the better. At the party, encourage everyone to bring pictures of themselves during the 80s and see how much you’ve changed! Additionally, try to best recreate how you dressed in one of these pictures and the one who does it the best wins a prize! During an 80s themed reunion, you’ll also listen to all the synth-pop music you can handle.

Private food tours

Does your family love to eat? Want to experience something fun and different together? If so, consider one of the private food tours offered by Melting Pot. When your family partakes in a private tour, you’ll enjoy a food tour led by knowledgeable guides who will take you to various locations in Los Angeles, depending on which tour your choose. Whether you want to learn more about the Original Farmers Market or explore Latin flavors in East LA or even discover new spots in Old Town Pasadena, there is a tour just for you! Most of the groups need to have at least 10 people to enjoy a private tour!

Outdoor movie night

Another fun option is simply staying at home and having an outdoor movie night with the whole family! There are a number of different companies that offer inflatable movie screens for your outdoor viewing pleasure. Add a portable fire pit to make some s’mores and you’ll have the makings of fun and relaxed family reunion that all ages can enjoy.
