Although weather (gusty winds) kept many participants away this year, about 900 participated in the 47th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage on Saturday, April 30, 2016.

In case you missed it, video of the day’s events is available at VIDEO: 47th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage and 2016 Manzanar At Dusk.

A photo essay from professional photographers Mark Kirchner and Geri Ferguson will be coming down the road, but for now, here are some amateur photos capturing some of the sights from the Pilgrimage. Also, if you did not get a copy of our printed program from the event, or if you couldn’t make it to the Pilgrimage this year, you can download the 36-page program at:
