I’d been back from Chicago (which I’ll post about next time) for about 14 hours when some friends and I jumped in the car and headed to the beach – Laguna Beach to be exact.
Laguna Beach has long been a small art town. During the summer, there are many art related activities and festivals like the Sawdust Festival, Festival of Arts, and Art-A-Fair. The most popular event however is the Pageant of the Masters.
The Pageant is a show of tableau vivant or living pictures. Works of art are recreated and “performed” on stage using beautifully costumed people and elaborate set design. It has taken place annually since 1932. Tonight was the first time I attended, and I was thoroughly impressed.
This year’s theme is “Only Make Believe”.

If you are ever in Southern CA during the summer, you’ll have to check it out.
