This event only takes place once a year during the summer and to me it's once in a lifetime experience. According to the locals, there is nothing like this anywhere else in the World. This is a very popular tradition in Laguna Beach and has been presented for 80 years.
During the show, real-life people stand-still to recreate famous paintings, movie scenes and works of art. The people that recreate these scenes are volunteers (not professional actors). The theme changes every year. If you are lucky enough to be in town (or plan to) make sure you get our tickets. This show defies imagination. This is one of those things that you have to see it to believe.
Some useful tips:
- Bring binoculars even if sitting close to the stage, so you can appreciate the details (they also rent binoculars at the venue for $10). This is specially important and the further from the stage you are the bigger the need to bring binoculars.
- Wear warm clothes and closed toe shoes as it gets chilly at night time. Some families would bring blankets and share to keep warm.
- Get there early and buy tickets in advance. They sell-out pretty quickly.
