Gold Rush! Western Heritage Family Day

Long before the masses flocked to California in pursuit of a gold statue, they came in hopes of finding pure, unadulterated gold. Explore the legendary California Gold Rush each weekend in Griffith Park, where you'll learn just how tough it was to get a break in the old days. Take a shot at panning at a re-creation of a miner's station and you might suspect the casting couch is rather cushy.
