Sunset Campfire Wrap up

Many thanks to all the people who were able to attend our last Summer Sunset Campfire for the 2010 season. We had a great turnout of eager participants who sang songs, learned about the Los Angeles River, and of course munched on many a roasted marshmallow. Campfires will resume in April of 2011, but until then keep checking the blog for other fun upcoming events.

Our Next Sunset Campfire, 3 Weeks From Today!

Our next Sunset Campfire on Sept. 18 at 6:30pm here at LASHP


Well as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, or in the case a seven month hiatus. Yes indeed, come out September 18th at 6:30pm for our last Summer Sunset Campfire of the 2010 season. Not to worry though because Sunset Campfires will return in April 2011, but until then, make sure you come out to our final campfire for the 2010 season to satiate your need for local history and roasted marshmallows.

Like always we will be meeting in the center of Los Angeles State Historic Park at 6:30pm. Feel free to come early and bring a picnic dinner to enjoy in the park prior to the start of the campfire. We will sing songs, learn about the nature and history that surrounds us and of course we will be roasting marshmallows. If you have any questions email Thomas at tcarroll@parks.ca.gov or give him a call at (three two three) 441-8819. And of course, this event to free and fun for the whole family.

What A Great Sunset Campfire!

In case you missed it, we had a great Sunset Campfire over the weekend. Wild Works brought numerous amazing animals that they rescued and resuscitated and of course the night ended with a marshmallow roast. Thanks very much to everyone who came out and you can look forward to our next campfire on the May 22nd.

That’s right, our Sunset Campfires are starting up again, with our first one of the summer happening on April 24th. In case you have never been to a Sunset Campfire at Los Angeles State Historic Park, you are in for quite a treat. Park staff roll out a portable fire pit, talk about the history of the park or maybe animals that live near by and at the end everyone roasts marshmallows over the campfire. Not only that but you get to watch the sun set behind the a dramatic downtown skyline. Best of all, it is free and makes for a fun evening event for the whole family! The first Sunset Campfire is happening on April 24th at 6:30pm and will taking place in the center of the park right by the parking lot. They only thing your family needs to bring is a blanket.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Thomas at (three two three) 441-8819
