As you know, several State Historic Parks in Los Angeles are on the governators chopping block. One of them is my favorite: Los Encinos State Historic Park which I have written about here.
This is a little patch of heaven right on Ventura Blvd. near Balboa in the heart of Encino.
On Sunday, October 19th 2000 they are having a Western themed Stagecoach Day at the park where you can dress up with the kids and learn about the park, listen to live bands, and see a real live stagecoach arrive off the Historic El Camino Real (Ventura Blvd.) It sounds like a lot of fun!
We need Huell Howser to cover this!
Here's their flier:
Los Encinos State Historic Park invites you to out biggest event of the year. Journey back with us to 1858 as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the beginning of scheduled transcontinental stagecoach service to California.
Sunday, October 19th 2008. 10 AM to 4 PM
Los Encinos State Historic Park
16756 Moorpark St., Encino CA 91436-1068
We will have two live bands, Victorian dancing, children's activities, a blacksmith, a telegraph office and a real stagecoach with horses.
The stagecoach will begin the day at Campo de Cahuenga in Universal City, then travel under its own power down Ventura Blvd to Los Encinos (arriving around mid-day) and then continue the journey on to the Leonis Adobe in Calabasas.
Be there with us at Los Encinos to welcome its arrival and to show your support for our State Parks in these troubled times.
Admission is free. If you feel so inclined, come in your old west finery to join in the fun!
