Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Today is the Lummis Day Festival, which happens to be a fun, free way to get to know Northeast Los Angeles through music, dance, food, and historic locales. Throughout the day you can enjoy live performances from a broad range of styles and genres of entertainment, from salsa to Latin ska reggae to Flamenco dancers to puppets and much, much more.Things get underway at 10:30 this morning at the Lummis Home where poets and artists will be taking part in a cultural exhibition, then the event moves to the historic buildings and stages set up at Heritage Square. There's a shuttle to help move you from location to locaton, too.

The fifth annual Lummis Day Festival has altogether nearly 100 performers and artists from 17 bands and dance troupes, plus dozens of artists, craftspeople, and community groups participating today, so there's lots to see, do, learn, and experience all day long. Use the Lummis Day website to download a full schedule of events and the map.
