Church of Scientology Festival: Fun for Thousands This Easter in East Hollywood

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The Church of Scientology Los Angeles hosted a family fun day April 17 to make the holiday memorable for local families. L. Ron Hubbard Way was filled with music and laughter with some 5,000 guests from across Los Angeles joining parishioners and staff of the Church of Scientology for a joyful Easter celebration.

Among the most popular features were sack races and donut-eating contests. The bouncy house, egg decorating tables, face painting, arts and crafts booths and the petting zoo were filled all afternoon.

There was cotton candy, colorful shaved ices, and other complimentary treats along with some of the neighborhood's favorite food trucks.

Live music competed with the laughter and squeals of the children as they raced for the Easter eggs. And with new hunts scheduled throughout the afternoon, children of all ages came away with buckets and baskets filled.

To ensure lasting memories of the day, the Easter bunny and two giant butterflies on stilts provided plenty of photo ops.

Comments on the Church's Instagram included: "This is too cute!!" "The donut eating contest omg!" "Wow, wow, wow, jam-packed! I love it!!!" "This is amazing!!!!!" and "Best Easter Event!"

The fun took place all up and down L. Ron Hubbard Way, which also hosted a spring fair and celebration of the 25th anniversary of the street's dedication last weekend.

At the Sunset Boulevard corner of L. Ron Hubbard Way is the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles, featured in Inside a Church of Scientology on the Scientology Network, which was part of the special when Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige launched the network in honor of L. Ron Hubbard's birthday in 2018.

The Church of Scientology Los Angeles is an Ideal Scientology Organization, configured to service Scientologists in their ascent to spiritual freedom and serve as a home for the entire community-a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of L. Ron Hubbard Way in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- State and city officials joined Scientologists, friends and community leaders from across Los Angeles in East Hollywood April 9 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the dedication of L. Ron Hubbard Way, named for the Founder of the Scientology religion.

The street is home to the Church of Scientology Los Angeles and advanced Scientology Churches that serve parishioners from across America, and is a crossroads for the world's largest community of Scientologists.

City and state officials who took part in the original dedication were among the crowd celebrating the milestone.

Those attending included Nate Holden, who served four years in the California State Senate and 16 years on the Los Angeles City Council. Also participating was Keith Moze, General Manager of Streets L.A.; Sylvia Cunliffe, then L.A. City General Services Manager; and Baydsar Thomasian, district consultant to State Senator Maria Elena Durazo. Ms. Thomasian was senior deputy to District 13 Councilmember Jackie Goldberg in 1997.

In preparation for the street's dedication 25 years ago, the Church renovated the entire city block from Sunset to Fountain. Hundreds of volunteers participated in the project which included undergrounding all electrical wiring, pouring new sidewalks, landscaping the tree-lined avenue, and creating the street itself by laying 150,000 bricks.

Ms. Thomasian, who helped coordinate the project between the Church and L.A. City Council, said, "It is great to be here to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the creation of L. Ron Hubbard Way. Few other staffers here today can say they were actually part of the creation and I'm honored to say I was." She presented the Church with a California flag flown over the California State Capitol in Sacramento on behalf of State Senator Durazo.

In addition to serving as a home to Scientologists from across Greater Los Angeles, L. Ron Hubbard Way is also a community hub, hosting festivals, markets, and family fun days for East Hollywood families. Case in point, that same afternoon, L. Ron Hubbard Way featured the Church's annual Spring Fair, open free of charge to the community. It included an artisan market and some of L.A.'s favorite food trucks. And for the kids, there were pony rides, face painting, a petting zoo, and other games and treats.

For more information on L. Ron Hubbard Way, watch Inside a Church of Scientology on the Scientology Network, which debuted the day the network launched in honor of the Founder's birthday in 2018. Also featured in the launch special was an introduction to the network by Mr. David Miscavige, ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion.
