Come celebrate one of the most talked about highlights of the summer! Join the Arcadia Recreation and Community Services Department for an adult excursion to this fantastic annual event in Laguna Beach on Friday, August 21. Historic paintings come to life in this magnificent display of art. Is there anything more personal, more elusive than what it is to be happy? The 2015 Pageant of the Masters “The Pursuit of Happiness,” will explore the many sources of happiness, both ancient and modern through our theatrical production of “living pictures.” Go on a sentimental journey through depictions of pastimes and activities that gave people joy long before the instant gratification of the computer age. Discover artists who found their own answers to the age-old question, “what makes life worth living?” The 2015 Pageant promises to be a breathtaking, playful and joyous journey, in search of that most mysterious of treasures.
As a Pageant patron, you’ll be admitted to The Festival of Arts – California’s Premier Fine Art Show, absolutely free all summer long! Simply show your Pageant ticket at the Festival’s front gate. You’ll enjoy stunning artwork, hands-on demonstrations, wine tasting, and much more. Come back again and again.
The trip fee of $65 includes pageant admission, round trip transportation in an air conditioned coach bus and snacks. Tickets are non-refundable. Please arrive at 5pm, the bus leaves promptly at 5:30pm from the Arcadia Community Center, 365 Campus Drive, Arcadia, CA 91007, and returns at midnight!
