LOS ANGELES — The 42nd annual Manzanar Pilgrimage, sponsored by the Los Angeles-based Manzanar Committee, is scheduled for noon on Saturday, April 30, at the Manzanar National Historic Site, located on US Highway 395 in California’s Owens Valley, between the towns of Lone Pine and Independence, approximately 230 miles north of Los Angeles.
Each year, hundreds of students, teachers, community members, clergy and former inmates attend the Pilgrimage. Planning is under way for the afternoon event as well as for the “Manzanar At Dusk” program, scheduled for that same evening.
More information on the programs and bus transportation from the Los Angeles area will be announced at a later date.
Pilgrimage participants are advised to bring their own lunch, drinks and snacks as there are no facilities to purchase food at the Manzanar National Historic Site (restaurants and fast food outlets are located in nearby Lone Pine and Independence). Water will be provided at the site.
