Echo Park Lake Lotus Festival is back!


This is very exciting for Echo Park… the Lotus Festival has returned!

The 34th Lotus Festival takes place this weekend, July 12 and 13. This year’s host country is the Philippines.

This is not only the first year since the park was closed and renovated, it’s been a few years since there have been actual Lotus flowers blossoming at the lake. There will also be the return of the Dragon Boat races, as well as some delicious food, entertainment, performances, music and dancing.

To kick off the festivities, Council District 13 is hosting Echo Park Night on Friday, July 11 with a film screening and live music. Picnic baskets and blankets encouraged!

Opening ceremony for the festival starts at noon on Saturday, July 12. Check back on this post for schedule updates as we get them!

UPDATE: Lotus Festival Schedule after the jump!
