Join the Velaslavasay Panorama and friends as we celebrate the magic of a newly restored, repainted and revived neon marquee for the Union Theatre dating back to the 1920s. The Los Angeles International Neon Jubilee will kick off at 12-noon with a dedication featuring city officials and neighborhood representatives who will be giving out free shoes in children's sizes 13-9 for the first few families. Informative booths on earthquake preparedness, the West Adams Heritage Association, Council District 8, and handicraft booths from the Chiapas Project at the Velaslavasay Panorama will be there for your perusing pleasure.
