This First Friday, help us celebrate those who serve our country!

Look for representatives from the Long Beach Police and Fire Departments and veterans organizations to engage with and thank for their service. Also, look for vehicles from LBPD and LBFD to explore (Fire Engine No. 9 will be stationed right outside the Expo Arts Center).


Make your way into the Expo Arts Center and view the annual Veterans Photography Exhibit sponsored by the Arts Council for Long Beach and the California Paralyzed Veterans of America.
