Lotus Festival This Saturday!
Summer’s finally here! (Kinda…) So “Let’s Go Outside” and enjoy some great events here in the Los Angeles area — Like The Lotus Festival this weekend in Echo Park (in the actual Echo Park park…)!
Elson and the Soul Barkada will be returning to the festival, performing a brand new song, some old favorites and a few surprises! We’ll be playing on the main stage at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 10!
Joining me on Saturday in the Soul Barkada will be Keith Dasalla (percussion), August Schmid (guitar), Lisa Ulanday (background vocals), Louie Ulanday (background vocals), Jay Arbolario (drums) and Larry Feldman (bass)!
The festival is FREE, and bring the family! Unfortunately, this will be the last Lotus Festival for a few years — the lake at Echo Park will be drained and renovated for the next few years.
They also plan to replace the lotus flower bed that has been dying for the past couple years. So don’t miss this one!
Echo Park is located at the corner of Glendale Blvd and Park Ave, just two miles northwest of Downtown Los Angeles.
