The following list is a curated roundup of weekend events in Long Beach published every Wednesday on the Hi-lo and Long Beach Post. Have an event to share? Email [email protected] with “Things to Do” in the subject line.

Hopefully, you’ve been adjusting to the time change with grace.

Many of us are a little bitter, still waiting for Proposition 7, the popular “Sunshine Protection Act,” to happen, if it ever will. Still, the earlier nights shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the city this weekend. Comedian Amy Sedaris is performing at the Carpenter Center this weekend and a touring ballet company is visiting the Terrace Theater for a stunning show of “Cinderella.”

We’ve also found a very large and very cute pet adoption fair going on; plus, a Cambodian night “marklet.” And for those who would like to take part in painting a piece of what will be local history, grab your smock for a community painting event in Rose Park.

A new exhibition immortalizing the essence of Cambodia Town by Long Beach-born artist Tidawhitney Lek is opening at the Long Beach Museum of Art Friday, Nov. 10 and will run through Feb. 4.

The exhibition “Living Spaces,” the artist’s first solo show, is an exquisite collection of paintings by the Cambodian-American artist that brings into focus scenes from one of the city’s most culturally rich neighborhoods. Her paintings portray a quilt-like tableau of people and places along Anaheim Street that draws from her memory, cultural heritage and experience growing up in Long Beach to a family of Khmer-Rouge refugees.

Opening reception to the exhibition is from 7 to 9 p.m. and is free to attend. LBMA members may see the exhibition early from 5 to 7 p.m. Click here for more information.

The Long Beach Museum of Art is at 2300 E. Ocean Blvd.

Organized by nonprofits The Little Lion Foundation and The Cat Cove, this fair will be bringing together over 100 adoptable dogs and cats ready to find their new forever home.

In addition to the massive adoption center, guests can also shop from a variety of pet vendors, eat a baked good or two and get down on some fun crafts. The event is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free to attend (the adoptions are not free). Click here for more information.
