The Great Horror Campout is right around the corner. Join us June 7th and 8th for an exciting weekend of terror and trees. The Great Horror Campout is described as ”an overnight, immersive experience that puts campers into an interactive horror camping adventure. Whether campers decide to stay in their tents or venture into the darkness, they are fair game. You will be lured out of your tent one way or another. Whether it’s to participate in the “Hell Hunt,” use the restrooms, or just being dragged out by your sleeping bag, even campers whom want to sleep or hang in their tent with friends will find themselves having to go into the dark sooner or later.”

Earth Day Latino 2013
Earth Day is one month away and this year we are celebrating with tradition. For the third consecutive year, The William C. Velasquez Institute will be at LASHP hosting Earth Day Latino! This years event will be filled with great activities, including yoga, a drum circle and a show by The Nature of Wildworks . With encouragement to ride your bike (arrive on bike = borrow a tent), the event conveniently overlaps with CicLAvia (see poster below). Earth Day weekend is bound to be big and great, so we encourage you to get out, ride your bike and enjoy this beautiful city, and our wonderful park!

Los Angeles State Historic Park will be the host of electronic sensation Swedish House Mafia. SHM will be performing Friday, March 8th and Saturday March 9th at the park. LASHP will be closed to the public for the event from 6:00pm, Thursday, March 7th until 8:00am, Sunday, March 10th.
If you have spent time at Los Angeles State Historic Park lately chances are you have seen our resident Hawk. This hawk, whom we have happily named “Hawk Finn”, is an adventurous and well fed hawk. Hawk Finn feeds in the park on critters and flies low, giving visitors a front row seat to the dining show. If you see Hawk Finn in the park grab your cameras fast, he usually moves about fairly rapidly.
Los Angeles State Historic Park will be the host of Swedish House Mafia’s last tour dates. The shows are set for March 8th and 9th.

A sad day for California State Parks as we learned yesterday of the passing of Huell Howser. We were very fortunate to have Huell visit here and feature Los Angeles State Historic Park in his Downtown series. His enthusiasm, sincerity, and abiding passion for all things Californian will be deeply missed.
