From 6:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., celebrate the 231st Anniversary of the founding of Los Angeles with historic re-enactments, artisan demonstrations, exhibits, food, entertainment and plenty of birthday cake! The annual "Los Pobladores Historic Walk to Los Angeles" is an early morning re-enactment of the nine-mile walk from the San Gabriel Mission to found El Pueblo de Los Angeles at what is now Olvera Street.

On Labor Day, take advantage of the closing of “San Pedro’s Golden Gate” and join your fellow runners and walkers, who will fill the fourth-longest expansion bridge in California for the Conquer the Bridge 5 Mile Race.

Please note that Caltrans requires that the Vincent Thomas Bridge must be re-opened no later than 11:00 a.m. Participants who are still on the bridge at 10:30 a.m. will be picked up by a van and taken down to Harbor Blvd. to finish the race.
