“Ramona Days” - OCTOBER 18, 2008, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Helen Hunt Jackson’s classic California novel, Ramona, comes to life at Rancho Camulos, a National Historic Landmark, fondly known as the “Home of Ramona” The 1884 book which is still in publication spawned the first California tourist boom, inspired several movies, plays, pageants, books, advertising spinoffs, and controversy. It is Helen Hunt Jackson’s birthday and we are celebrating all things Ramona. There will be FREE admission, parking and activities for all ages: Living history, drama and tales, historic displays and presentations, arts and crafts fair with demonstrations, music, dance, antique farm equipment, hayrides, animal encounters, food, museum and garden tours, unique shopping opportunities, free children’s activities and more. There will be entertainment throughout the day including Ramona play scenes performed by the Hemet cast, performances by Los Californios, and the Inlakech Cultural Center Musicians and Ballet Folklorico. View Griffith’s 1910 silent film starring Mary Pickford shot on location at Camulos and listen to contemporary accounts of life in the Santa Clara River Valley.
