Creation Station: “Outrageous Orange”

Creation Station is back!  Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site announces an afternoon of good, old-fashioned fun for youngsters on Saturday, October 3, 2015. Children ages 6-11 can create unique seasonal crafts and participate in a historically themed workshop between 1-4 p.m. Reservations are not needed for this free, drop-in program.


“Outrageous Orange” celebrates Halloween! Children can choose from an array of art materials and nature supplies to make finger puppets, pumpkin crafts, and harvest-time decorations. In addition to participating in “Creation Station” hands-on activities, visitors can take a house or garden tour between 1-5 p.m.  And don’t forget to calendar the upcoming “Creation Station” dates for 2015 – “Brilliant Brown” on November 7, which will focus on Thanksgiving, and “Gorgeous Green” December 5, with Christmas-themed activities.


Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is a public museum open for tours, programs, and special events. The Rancho is located at 4600 Virginia Road in Long Beach, northwest of the intersection of Long Beach Boulevard and San Antonio Drive. Free guided tours are offered Wednesday-Sunday from 1-5 p.m.


Built in 1844, the Rancho’s adobe home and grounds echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to the modern, urban society it is today. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s. The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives. It is operated by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation in a public/private partnership with the City of Long Beach.
