Here’s an update on the 100 Mules project celebrating the 100 anniversary of the opening of the L.A. Aqueduct. Mules were instrumental in getting the aqueduct built in the early 1900s. No, that mule above isn’t one of the traveling equines. That’s a shot from Mule Days in Bishop a few years ago.
The group of 100 mules and a couple dozen wranglers plus riders have traveled 240 miles along the pipeline’s route, and spent today traveling from Hansen Dam in Lakeview Terrace to Brand Park in Glendale. Tomorrow, the group makes its way to the Glendale Veterans Day parade down Western Avenue at 9 a.m. From there, they’ll take to the streets of Burbank’s Rancho neighborhood en route to the L.A. Equestrian Center at about 11 a.m. The moving art installment winds down with an event at the Equestrian Center’s Equidome at about 1 p.m. Yee ha.
