Trend Watch: Kids Club at Bella Terra

At Bella Terra, it's Kids Club time from 10:30 to 11 a.m. Monday.

Singer Jamie Shaheen will entertain children with sing-a-longs as she plays the piano. The Kids Club takes place at the outdoor amphitheater near the movie theater and Johnny Rockets.

If you haven't been, it's a great way to spend a half hour. I used to take my son to the weekly events during the summer, and kids loved the show, not to mention running around the amphitheater.

Bella Terra is at 7777 Edinger Ave.;
