The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum honors California's Latin history during its first Hispanic Heritage Day celebration. On Sept 28, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Rancho will remember the cultural legacy of the Dominguez family, and commemorate the Latino influences that have shaped the community.
The museum presents a different perspective of Hispanic culture through arts and crafts, performances, and food from different Latin American countries. Event goers can learn about different Latino cultures during a living history camp, and through an interactive play area for children.
Hispanic Heritage day is one of many community events held yearly at the Rancho. A $10 donation to help fund museum programs and events is suggested.
The museum, operated by Friends of Rancho San Pedro, is host to volunteer opportunities, monthly speaker series, and family events that give the community a chance to get involved with local history.
The Rancho is located on Alameda Street in Rancho Dominguez. For more information about events and volunteer opportunities, visit www.ranchodominguez.org .
