Poolside 1940s

The Great Air Raid of Los Angeles 1942

Hundreds gathered Saturday evening to commemorate the controversial Great Air Raid of Los Angeles. In 1942 a panic stricken¬†populace let loose a barrage of¬†anti aircraft fire convinced that the Japanese were flying overhead to do harm to the city of Angels. Whether Zero’s were overhead or not, once a year the faithful gather at Fort Macarthur Park to reenact the eventful evening with 1940s clothing, music, cars and militaria. It’s a swell evening for all and Bear Flag Republic was on scene to take it all in and share it with you.
