approximately 4:00 pm
The American Mule Museum and the Lone Pine Film History Museum will be hosting a ‘Community Welcome’ as the 100 mules of the "One Hundred Mules Walking the Los Angeles Aqueduct" fame arrive at the Lone Pine Film History Museum and Lone Pine Rodeo Grounds.
The Museums would like to welcome the Owens Valley communities to view the mules as they participate in this once in a lifetime event. The "One Hundred Mules Walking the Los Angeles Aqueduct" project, presented by Lauren Bon and the Metabolic Studio, in cooperation with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, is commemorating the centenary of the opening of the Los Angeles Aqueduct. The Mule Walk is part of a multidimensional event that seeks to raise awareness of our water resources. The 100 mules will traverse all 240 miles of the pipelines and canals of the aqueduct, traveling for about a month, and ending in Los Angeles. Mules and the men who worked with them shaped the modern West and were a primary force in construction of the aqueduct.
Activities will include: films about mules and water, food and refreshments, music, opportunities to learn about both Museums and visit with the heroes of the day: the Mules!
This event is open to the public and everyone is invited. Activities will begin at 2pm and the mules should arrive by 4 pm, Sunday, October 20, 2013 at the Lone Pine Rodeo Grounds located behind the Lone Pine Film History Museum, 701 S. Main St, Lone Pine CA 93545.
