Los Angeles Heritage Day is April 29
On April 29th, the Los Angeles Heritage Alliance will host a special day-long event to celebrate the Southland's colorful and diverse history. With over 500 years of stories to tell, the 4th annual Los Angeles Heritage Day will be an event not to miss especially for the history geeks! The event features such items as menus from long-ago restaurants, L.A.'s first fire "truck," a Civil War tent, and a wooden nickel among others. Kids will also find history to be fun with a special scavenger hunt planned.
This year's Heritage Day will take place at the Pico House at the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Monument next to the famed Olvera Street in downtown. In addition to the artifacts that will be available for viewing, guests will have the chance to participate in tours, children's activities, giveaways, and visit 5 museums among a whole host of other scheduled events.
With over 60 heritage groups participating, there is certain to be something for everyone. For additional information, visit ExperienceLA.com, or check out the LA Heritage Alliance press release.
We hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity to debunk the myth that there is no "real" history in Los Angeles! Did we mention the event, including tours, is free?!?!
