Celebrate one of the most talked about highlights of the summer; join the Arcadia Recreation and Community Services Department for an adult excursion to the Pageant of the Masters, the crowning jewel of the Festival of Arts of Laguna Beach, on Friday, Aug. 24. The trip fee of $77 includes pageant admission, round trip transportation in an air conditioned coach bus, and snacks. Tickets are non-refundable. Arrive at 5 p.m. as the bus will leave promptly at 5:30 p.m. from the Arcadia Community Center and returns at midnight.
This year’s theme, “Under the Sun,” will honor Laguna’s own, and other artistic pioneers from around the world who left their studios in search of new inspiration, through theatrical magic, live music, and light-hearted storytelling. In the early years of the 20th century, a new generation of impressionists and plein air painters set up their easels outdoors and reveled in the natural beauty to be found as far as the eye could see. There’ll also be no shortage of fun and surprises as the Pageant acknowledges two local milestones: the 85th anniversary of “living pictures” at the Festival of Arts and the 100th anniversary of Laguna Art Museum.
As a Pageant patron you’ll be admitted to The Festival of Arts absolutely free all summer long, simply show your Pageant ticket at the Festival’s front gate. You’ll enjoy stunning artwork, hands-on demonstrations, wine tasting, and much more. For more information, please call (626) 574-5113.
