The Echo Park Historical Society has teamed up with event organizer Out of the Box of Events to produce The Echo Park Challenge, a neighborhood-wide scavenger hunt and fundraiser that will be held on Saturday, Nov. 12. One of the neighborhood’s most historic places, Echo Park Lake is off limits as it undergoes a massive clean up. But event organizers say there are plenty of other historic sites and stories to discover:
Echo Park is where the famous pie-in-the-face joke was born and a favorite Tramp came to life. This LA neighborhood was also the backdrop to a little Pulp Fiction becoming reality. No prior knowledge of Echo Park necessary. Just bring a sharp mind, a charged camera and comfortable shoes for this challenge. Prizes to the winning team!
A portion of the $30 admission benefits the historical society.
