World Special Federation Presents:

 26th Anniversary of the L.A. Civil Unrest Remembrance
L.A. International Peace Parade

On Saturday, April 28, 2018, you are cordially invited to the 2018 Los Angeles International Peace Parade in commemoration of the April 29, 26th Anniversary of the 1992 L.A. Civil Unrest.

This is the sixth time we will be hosting this event. Our program will feature an Opening Ceremony, a Peace Parade,  and a Peace Festival that will include booths and plenty of entertainment. We will gather together and unite to celebrate what makes Los Angeles a great place to live. Our motto is, "We are One." The Peace Parade promotes love, family, and unity.

OPENING CEREMONY  10 AM  (FESTIVAL AREA - Normandie / Olympic)

We will start things off with the Opening Ceremony that will feature special guest speakers along with some entertainment.

PEACE PARADE 10:30 AM  (Along Olympic between Normandie / Vermont)

This will be followed by the Peace Parade along Olympic Blvd. This year we have invited United Nations consulates from around the world to share their cultural heritage that will make this a truly International Peace Parade.

PEACE FESTIVAL 11:30 AM - 3 PM  (FESTIVAL AREA - Normandie / Olympic)

There will be plenty of entertainment on the main stage featuring performers  representing countries from around the world, as well as talented local performing arts groups. And please visit all of the booths where you can learn more about various cultures and discover all the opportunities L.A. has to offer.

We have partnered with community leaders, organizations, government, the clergy, and United Nations representatives. Once divided, now, "We are One", working together toward a common goal to make life better for all.

It will be a pleasure to have you join us for this momentous celebration.
