UC San Diego Community Members Attend Chicano Park Day Celebration

Chicano Park in Barrio Logan was filled with thousands of people on Saturday, including dozens from the UC San Diego community, to celebrate the 43rd anniversary of the park’s establishment.  Chancellor Khosla joined students, faculty and staff to enjoy the traditional music, dance, art and food.  This year’s celebration was made even more special because of the addition of Chicano Park and its murals to the list of the National Register of Historic Places in January.  As part of UC San Diego's commemoration of César Chávez Month, free transportation was provided from the campus to Barrio Logan.

UC San Diego students enjoy lunch at Las Cuatro Milpas.
