Lummis Day: The Festival of Northeast Los Angeles, takes its name from Charles Fletcher Lummis, who walked 3,500 miles from Ohio to Los Angeles as a newspaper stunt in 1885. He was the first City Editor of the Los Angeles Times, founded the Southwest Museum – the first museum in Los Angeles – preserved the Old Spanish Missions of Southern California, published a literary magazine, Land Of Sunshine/Out West, and was an advisor to President Theodore Roosevelt. He hand built El Alisal, aka Lummis Home, one of Northeast L.A.’s most cherished cultural monuments, where he hosted a seminal art salon...(more)
Weeks of training will culminate this Sunday 5/22 as @EagleRockElem girls will run the @GOTRLA 5k
Girls on the Run of Los Angeles will host their annual Family 5k event on Sunday, May 22. Please remember that this is a family fun run/walk and we encourage everyone to come and finish at your own happy pace. Training for a 5K is a huge accomplishment and we hope to see all of you at the finish line. Congratulations on your training and best of all, have a fun!
The event officially kicks off at 8 am. This includes late registration, bib pick up for all, face painting, happy (washable) hair spray, temporary tattoos and more. We will have refreshments after so plan to have breakfast before you come. Perhaps something light such as toast with nut butter and a banana with a beverage instead of a stack of pancakes with eggs, potatoes and sausages!
If you are planning to participate on Sunday, we encourage you to come dressed in attire and shoes that will comfortably support your running/walking for 3.1 miles! There will be one water stop on the course and you should also feel free to bring your own water bottle.
Each team will have two signs, one hand held and one attached to the fence where all teams will meet, so please look for the Eagle Rock Elementary sign and meet us there no later than 9 am. The run/walk will begin promptly at 9:30 am in 4 waves; we are in wave #3 which starts at 9:40 am. Please, please do not wait until the very last minute to find us.

LA welcomes 65,000 lbs of @NASA #SpaceShuttle History as tank crawls to @CAScienceCenter @NASAJPL_Edu
History is being made this weekend as the last-existing, flight-qualified external fuel tank for NASA's Space Shuttle Program makes a 16.5-mile crawl through the streets of Los Angeles to its new home at the California Science Center. On Saturday, May 21, the tank, a nearly 154-foot long, more than 65,000-pound behemoth dubbed ET-94, will be towed from the port in Marina del Rey (where it arrived after another epic voyage) to the science center. Eventually, it will be displayed with the space shuttle Endeavour and two solid rocket boosters in launch configuration – looking like it's ready to blast into space. (MORE)
#FREE Boat Tours of the Port of Los Angeles this Saturday (5/21 10a-3p) @PortofLA @red_tricycle
Giving the local community an opportunity to see a working port up-close and in action, the Port of Los Angeles (America's Port) will be hosting its second annual Waves ‘N’ Wheels event on the LA Waterfront from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on May 21. With activities scheduled in both San Pedro and Wilmington, the event will feature free public boat tours and unique displays of Port vehicles and equipment - from massive cargo ships to tugs, to giant cranes and alternative-fuel vehicles, and more.
The Port of Los Angeles is the busiest container port in the nation. The furniture and electronics in your home, the car you drive, and the clothing and shoes that you wear most likely came through the Port of Los Angeles! There is nothing like the experience of pulling up next to a massive container ship as it unloads hundreds of containers, or seeing the world’s largest container facility that, at nearly 500 acres, is three times the size of Disneyland, and sits on a man-made island built from Catalina Island stones and material dredged from the bottom of our channels.
