The stewards of San Juan Capistrano’s rich history are celebrating a milestone, and the entire community is invited to join in on the fun.

The San Juan Capistrano Historical Society will commemorate their 50th anniversary with a special gathering called “Historical Fiesta Day, Celebrating Family Gatherings” on Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All are welcome to attend the event, which will take place on the grounds of the Historical Society’s headquarters, the O’Neill Museum, located at 31831 Los Rios Street in the Los Rios Historic District. The event is free to attend and will include a barbecue and $1 booth and game activities. All proceeds benefit the all-volunteer group’s efforts, which include historical walking tours, educational programs and other events.
