we will have a great big party to celebrate the birthday of the “Father of the Los Angeles Harbor,” Phineas Banning. In the spirit of Fiesta, guests of all ages will be treated to a fun evening of live music provided by Mariachi Ambiente and Wilmington’s own Folklorico dance troupe, Las Perlitas!
As a VIP guest, you will enjoy yummy Mexican fare provided by local favorite, Monarca’s Restaurant, reserved seating, onsite parking and a delicious cupcake. If you prefer more of a Picnic style, bring your own blanket or low chair and food and beverage and enjoy the event from the lawn of the beautiful Banning. Either way it will be a fun, festive night for all to enjoy!
We will also present the annual Entrepreneurial Spirit Award to Mr. Kaj Palsson, Co-Owner of International Cargo Equipment, Inc. a local community member who embodies the indomitable spirit of Mr. Banning himself.
