Navy Days L.A. Event Sails into Port of Los Angeles Aug. 5-11

After a one-year hiatus, Navy Days L.A. will make its highly-anticipated return to San Pedro from today, Aug. 5 through Aug. 11 with a much larger event than the previous time naval officers came ashore in 2012.

An estimated 750 active-duty sailors will arrive in San Pedro along with two U.S. Navy vessels. The first ship, the USS Anchorage (LPD 23), is expected to arrive at at the Port of Los Angeles at 3:30 p.m. today. The second ship, guided missile destroyer USS Spruance (DDG 111), is expected to arrive Wednesday.

The Navy Days L.A. event allows visitors to tour the visiting ships and meet sailors, becoming informed about how U.S. Navy ships and crews function.

In addition to this year’s ship tours, there will be a Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Expo on Wednesday and Thursday, which will be hosted at the Port of Los Angeles World Cruise Terminal. The free expo is an educational activity for children and requires registration. School groups and Boy Scouts are already expected to attend the expo.

Due to federal budget cuts, Navy Days L.A., which is sponsored by the U.S. Navy, missed the Port of Los Angeles last year. The absence of the event was disappointing because tourists and local residents look forward to the visiting sailors, said Scott Gray, president of the San Pedro Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“San Pedro has such a military history it’s kind of a natural for [Navy Days] to come here. I think San Pedro is more open to have these events than other port towns in the area,” said Gray.

According to Gray, Navy Days is a boon to the local economy and is expected to generate “significant” revenue for the duration of the event this year.
