The Fort MacArthur Museum is proud to present what has become one of our most popular signature events. The Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942 is the museums celebration of one of the most fascinating and controversial events in Los Angeles History. A night when literally thousands of people both Military and Civilian were convinced that Los Angeles was being attacked from the air, and
even from space!!! What really happened that night is a debate that will probably go on for years, but for those of us it's
a time to remember the feeling of those early days of the World
In February 1942, the realities of the second
world war was just starting to become evident here is the
southland. The Great LA Air Raid of 1942 is a
fundraiser for the Fort MacArthur Museum and attempts to recreate the atmosphere
of a 1942 social evening out, interrupted by the reality of war.
What to expect:
The Great LA Air Raid event is held outdoors, under the stars in the courtyard of the Fort MacArthur Museum. The weather along the Pacific Coast in February can be unpredictable and cold at times. There will be area heaters around the dance floor, so bring coat, a camera, and your dancing shoes for a truly unforgettable night.... oh!, and watch out for little green men.
THE WEATHER IN FEBRUARY IS UNPREDICTABLE... HOWEVER, THE GREAT LOS ANGELES AIR RAID OF 1942 WILL TAKE PLACE RAIN OR SHINE!
