Pageant of the Masters information
Lonely Planet review
Hey, did that painting just move? Welcome to the Pageant of the Masters , in which elaborately costumed humans step into painstaking recreations of famous paintings on an outdoor stage. The pageant began in 1933 as a sideshow to Laguna Beach's Festival of Arts and has been a prime attraction ever since. Our favorite part: watching the paintings deconstruct.
