Cedillo Inaugurates New Field Office, New Music Fest

By EGP Staff Report

Councilman Gilbert Cedillo welcomed stakeholders in the First Council District to his new field office in Highland Park last Friday.

The outdoor evening affair included the requisite ribbon cutting ceremony, along with live Latin Jazz by Robert Incelli Band, food and cake.

Located in the landmark Highland Park Masonic Temple, the “official “ opening was delayed to allow time for Judson Studios to complete the installation of glass windows in keeping with the structure’s history.

The event also served as the official kick off to Cedillo’s 1st Annual Latin Jazz & Music Festival Saturday and Sunday at Sycamore Grove Park in Highland Park. Thousands of people attended the festival where they were treated to the rhythm of bands such as Poncho Sanchez, Chicano Batman and many others.

Cedillo said the festival had its own “Highland Park vibe,” and could be the start of Northeast Los Angeles becoming the city’s number one art and entertainment attraction.
