August 28, 2016 (Mt Laguna) -- Lore of the Laguna’s (Living History Pageant) returns as the Laguna Mountain Volunteer Association presents its 29th Annual LIVING HISTORY after a two-year hiatus. The past comes alive in this re-enactment of life in the Laguna Mountains, starting in the early 1900s and going back in time. Visit with Native Americans, rugged cowboys and turn-of-the-(last) century mountain men. Meet the first Laguna Forest Ranger, and relive the summer encampment of a 1908 pioneer family from Imperial Valley. How did they survive back then without any modern devices or conveniences and most of all, cell phones or social media? It was a slower pace, but lives were just as eventful and full of adventure as they are now.
Come, see history come alive! Saturday, Sept. 3 and Sunday, Sept. 4, 2016 at the Red-Tailed Roost Volunteer Headquarters near Mount Laguna in the Cleveland National Forest. Just 45 miles east of San Diego on I-8, then 8 ½ miles N on Sunrise Highway (on left, past mile marker 22.5). Hourly presentations beginning 9:30 am – 3:30 pm., Saturday and 10 am - 2 pm, Sunday. Free admission. Don’t miss the fun!
