Celebrations of the Past

The 4th of July Celebration in Temecula - 1904.

Written by Elizabeth Ludy in 1984
   I was 10 years old and my father was helping to get the "Ludy Ranch" ready for the Vails, who had bought it, so my brother - 12 years old - and I spent the summer, from May until December on the ranch in Temecula.

   Temecula was going to have a real Western 4th of July Celebration. Families came from far and near, everyone was there. Many of them left home before daybreak in their wagons with children and dogs and all.

   The day was sizzling hot as most summer days are in Temecula and dry and dusty but it was the 4th of July and who cared?
