San Gabriel Mission will offer free admission to its museum and
gardens on Friday, Sept. 4, through Sunday, Sept. 6, as the 238-year-old mission
celebrates its founding with its annual fiesta on those days.
Also, on Saturday, Sept. 5 and Sunday, Sept. 6, Gabrieleno-Tongva indians and
re-enactors of early California history have been invited to be in the gardens from
1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to talk to visitors and most will do demonstrations for the visitors.
Some re-enactors invited are a blacksmith, Fr. Serra, wool spinner, Indian clay potter, rope maker, and gold panner with a hands-on display.
