Daydream Fest This Sunday, May 19th
For the last three years hundreds of Eagle Rockers have enjoyed an afternoon of music and outdoor fun at the Daydream Fest which is held right at the base of one of Southern California’s most iconic land marks, our famous Eagle Rock. Local grass roots organization, Cannabis Clubs United With the Community, sponsors the event to show support for our local medical marijuana collectives and for our community members who choose to medicate with this natural organic medicine.
The annual event, held at the base of our Eagle Rock in Alatorre Park (top of North Figueroa St.) hosts a variety of local bands as well as food and fun for the whole family. Local bands performing this year are Cosmic Squirrels, Morning Glory, The Steves, Super Group, Fawks-One and special appearance from Legion Underworld.
All proceeds from the event go to benefit the Collaborative Eagle Rock Beautiful (CERB) who bought and helped save the area below the Eagle Rock from commercial development. While you enjoy the music you can also walk the easy 40 minute Eagle Rock Canyon Trail up to the scenic view near the top of the Eagle Rock where you can almost see the Pacific Ocean on a clear day.
This year’s theme seeks to have the Federal government respect the State’s medical marijuana laws and stop raiding dispensaries. Although federal agents shut down all medical marijuana collectives in Eagle Rock last year, we still support the right to medicate with this natural herbal remedyas well as the right of the State to implement its own regulations without the meddling of the Federal government.
The majority of Californians want the Federal government to stay out of our State’s medical marijuana laws because a whopping 77% of all Americans support medical marijuana and a majority (52%) of Americans favor outright Legalization of marijuana in order to regulate and tax this commodity, something that is impossible under federal Prohibition.
The Daydream Fest is open to the entire community and goes from noon to 8 pm. Bring your own chair or blanket to lounge on and come and enjoy the music and the fresh air. There will be restroom facilities available and everyone is invited to bring their kids and their dogs for a day of enjoyment and fun in the park.
