Los Angeles events

President’s Day coincides with the 72nd birthday of the USS Iowa, the West Coast’s only battleship open to the public. Celebrate the historic vessel’s special day pier-side with free cake after the morning opening ceremony featuring local dignitaries, veterans, exhibits, community booths, and food trucks. Then take an optional paid tour after the speeches wind up.

The family-friendly “Battleship of Presidents” in San Pedro combines history with food and beverages, a ’40s jazz band, dancing, a World War II shooting gallery, and other fun activities. See the cake while it’s shipshape, and then grab a slice before they all float away.
