Old Fort MacArthur Days - 12 July 2014

This was the 28th Anniversary of this fundraising event and the 100th Anniversary of Fort MacArthur (San Pedro, CA).
Considered one of the longest running Living History events in Southern California...
...this is the place to see fighting armor, military history buffs, and reenactors, representing all of recorded history.

The last time I attended this event was in 2009, when the hill along Roxbury Street held the overnight campers.
This time, that area held three times the campers, plus they were spread out all along W Paseo Del Mar.
Besides an increase in overnight reenactors, there were many more families (people with children dressed in period cloths).
There were several merchants selling vintage items.
I love attending as soon as they open, when there are more reenactors than visitors and better opportunity to get photos without modern day people in the background.
I only stayed long enough to witness one WWII battle...
...complete with a P-51 flyover.
