Today in Los Angeles the non-profit group Peace Quest invites one and all to come out to celebrate the 13th annual Peace Day. They have a full fay of events scheduled to take place until 9 tonight at the Westwood Recreation Complex that they hope will "bring people together regardless of race, creed, color, economic status or gender."

You can head over to check out what's going on, like the Peace Day Basketball Tournament, community performers, celebrity performers, violence prevention organizations will set up booths, a celebrity panel, games and bouncers for all ages, an art and poetry competition, radio stations, prizes, and food. Everything, maybe like peace itself, is absolutely free.

Whether you opt to check out the festivities, we decided to see what kind of peace was up in the LAist Featured Photos pool. We found symbols, art, signs, and people spreading the message in all places and manners. Peace out!
