While you're trying to figure out what exciting event to jump into this weekend in the city, don't forget to take a minute and look at the sky after dark on Friday. The last time there was a full moon on Friday, the 13th was Oct. 13, 2000. And the rare occurrence won’t happen again until August 13, 2049. 

Below is our list of all the happenings around Los Angeles this weekend.
