Walk of Remembrance: Celebrating Pacific Grove's Chinese Village and Pioneering Fishing Community

The 2016 Walk of Remembrance will begin with introductions at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History and include light refreshments. The Monterey Bay Lion Dance Team will lead the walk to Lover’s Point, then along the bike trail, to the site where the village once stood. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended for the half-mile trek.

With the shared goal of honoring the lives of early Chinese-American settlers, the Walk of Remembrance is made possible by a partnership between The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, The City of Pacific Grove, The Heritage Society of Pacific Grove, The Monterey Bay Lion Dance Team, The National Coalition Building Institute – Monterey Chapter, and The American Civil Liberties Union – Monterey Chapter.

Be sure to visit the Chinese Fishing Village exhibit, which tells the story of the residents of the Point Alones Chinese Fishing Village, the next time you visit the Museum.  For more information, click here.
