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!

    Hay gente que gana la mitad de dinero decente haciendo estas horribles encuestas. No son para mí y nunca lo serán, pero funcionan para algunas ( amas de casa aburridas normalmente! ).

    Nunca he oído hablar de Primerica en mi lado del globo. Es un alivio que de alguna manera no esté llegando aquí. Sin embargo, el estafador puede disfrazarla de otra forma para atraer a la gente a unirse. Especialmente cuando la sospecha de estafa está relacionada con el seguro o algo legítimo, va a engañar a mucha gente. ¡Gracias por compartirlo!

    Hola Dustin, sí, ciertamente te ayudarían con ese aspecto. El tráfico es la sangre vital de cada sitio web o negocio en línea, así que es casi imposible tener éxito sin él. Recomendaría abrir una cuenta gratuita y contactar con Kyle (o Carson) directamente y explicarles dónde crees que te equivocaste. La formación gratuita que proporcionan cubrirá todo lo que necesitas para tener un sitio web exitoso en funcionamiento. Recuerda, tendrás acceso completo a casi todo durante un período, así que aprovecha al máximo, revisa tanta información como sea posible. Ciertamente puedes hacer esto a tiempo parcial. Conozco miembros que tienen éxito y no tienen tiempo para publicar más de un artículo al mes en su sitio web. Todo se trata de lo que estás dispuesto a poner en el lado del aprendizaje de las cosas. Si estás concentrado no puedes fallar en el WA – es una gran afirmación pero es una en la que creo firmemente (he estado allí por muchos, muchos años – este sitio web está realmente en su hosting!)

    Hola Lucas. En mi país (el Reino Unido) está bien cosechar trufas siempre y cuando se obtenga el permiso del propietario… si estás en la tierra de otra persona, por supuesto. Ten en cuenta que a veces esta cosecha deja un poco de desorden – ¡limpia el suelo después de ti para estar seguro! Espero que esto ayude – ¡y feliz cosecha! ????

  17. Buddy Maser says:

    Bueno, esto es justo lo que cualquiera buscaría, o debería decir, para ayudarles a despegar con su tráfico. Me gusta la idea de no tener que trabajar tan duro por el mucho tráfico que hay. Cualquier cosa que haga las cosas más simples y exitosas tiene mi voto. ¿Puedo usarlo en múltiples vistas al mismo tiempo?
