Aloha!

on May 18, 2012

As in Aloha Expo….yea that’s kinda cheesy but I couldn’t think of anything else.  The Aloha Expo is a two day festival featuring an outdoor marketplace, island food, as well as live cultural entertainment.    The event will be held this weekend at Heritage Park from 10:00 a.m. thru 5:00 p.m.  Free admission and free parking.  Link:  http://www.aloha-expo.com/index.html

Heritage Park is an oasis in the middle of Santa Fe Springs.  It is the site of a former ranch, and the city has restored its grounds as well as some of its buildings.  On the main grounds, you will find a carriage barn, a greenhouse, an aviary, a windmill building and a Tongva exhibit.  Adjacent to the main grounds is a train exhibit.  There is a steam locomotive, a boxcar and a caboose.  The kids are allowed to climb into the locomotive but the exhibit is only open on the weekends.  There are also picnic areas on the main grounds and I think it would be really lovely to have a picnic there with sounds of the fountains in the background.  One thing to note is that there is no playground so according to the kids, “it’s not really a park”.
