A PREVIEW OF THE 2007 LOTUS FESTIVAL
Media kick-off luncheon for the 30th celebration of Asian Heritage
Los Angeles - The Department of Recreation and Parks and the Lotus Festival Advisory Board hosted the 30th Lotus Festival Media Luncheon on Thursday, June 14, 2007.
The luncheon served as a preview of the 2007 Asian Hertiage Celebration, which will offer a variety of entertainment, food, crafts and more. The event provided an opportunity to meet some of the sponsors and people who help organize the event.
The 30th Lotus Festival, to be held July 13-15, 2007 at Echo Park Lake, is one of the Department's most popular events. The festival brings together Asian and Pacific Islander cultures to celebrate what is unique about their cultures and what they have in common.
In commemoration of the festival's 30th Anniversary a new event will be introduced. The Inaugural Friday Night Twilight Jazz Concert will kick-off the festival on Friday, concluding with a spectacular fireworks show at 9 p.m. Opening ceremonies are at noon on Saturday and will be followed by two days of live music, dance and entertainment from a variety of performers and will conclude with a fabulous fireworks finale over Echo Park Lake on Sunday night.
The Department of Recreation and Parks looks forward to seeing you at this year's festival. For more information on this or other Department events, please call 1-888-LA-PARKS or visit or website at http://www.laparks.org/.
