Manny P. here…

   This weekend, I’ll be at a historic cemetery in Orange County, CA, for a major tour event and fundraiser that benefits the iconic Howe Waffle House in Santa Ana. Here are details of my appearance:


Creative Genius: Artists and Inventors in Orange County History

Fairhaven Memorial Park and Santa Ana Cemetery

1702 Fairhaven Ave., Santa Ana, CA

October 19th

Saturday 11p – 3p

leo-fender   This guided historical tour of Fairhaven Memorial Park and Santa Ana Cemetery features costumed actors portraying historic figures who share stories from Orange County’s past. For example, Fender and Rickenbacker are household names to famous folks involved in modern music, and both grew up in Orange County. Performers playing electric guitar pioneers, F.C. Hall and Leo Fender (who was born in Anaheim),  will explain their influence on the music scene of the 1950s and 1960s,  such as the Beach Boys, the Byrds and the Beatles. O.C. has been home to the imaginative, the artistic, and the inspired.   LEO FENDER ——>

   Docents will guide visitors through scenes that played creative roles in the recent history of the county, culminating in a presentation in Fairhaven’s beautiful 1916 mausoleum. A lovely outdoor setting and close access to the actors make this an entertaining outing for the whole family. Comfortable shoes are recommended for the hour-and-a-half long walking tour.

If you live in the Southern California area, I’ll be signing copies of my Forgotten Hollywood Book  Series, great gifts for the Holiday season.
