Discover Los Angeles

Guests embark on a self-guided stroll along a trail through lush landscaping similar to the earliest known trees and plants from the time dinosaurs roamed the earth, including ferns, cycads, conifers and ginkgos. Your face-to-face dinosaur encounters begin with a fierce Suchomimus, followed by a massive Brachiosaurus, whose 18-foot-long neck required a gigantic heart to pump blood up to the top.

Next, guests encounter two Coelophysis dinosaurs; a Citipati, which used its feathers to protect and warm its eggs, just like modern-day birds; and a Carnotaurus, a bipedal carnivore covered in small scales and bony lumps.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. The holiday is observed on the third Monday in January of each year, which is around King's birthday, January 15. Dr. King was a key figure and spokesman in the Civil Rights Movement. He received the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. The campaign for a federal holiday in King's honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.

Read on for a guide to Los Angeles events that celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. The following MLK Day events take place on Monday, Jan. 15, 2018 unless otherwise noted.
