  1. Isn't this the fiesta de Santa Cecilia? Or is it a completely different event?

    Sounds cool though. I'll let my sister know to take my nephew, this looks pretty cool.

  2. Phil, this is the opening of the Gold Line extension to East LA. The Santa Cecilia Mariachi is playing and I wonder if they're the same as the Santa Cecilia Orchestra. I also heard of another event at the civic center. I'll try to find out what's what.
